That time-worn bit of advice could well be the lesson for yesterday. On point, one day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average had soared to an early gain just north of 280 points, and to an intraday peak above 26,000 in that composite, before surrendering all of that early advance and then some, the Dow regrouped yesterday and jumped to an initial gain of 160 points before again falling back briefly in mid-morning. On Tuesday, the reason for the reversal was the fear of a late-week government shutdown. Yesterday, the early rise was the result of optimism about corporate earnings. U.S. equity futures are now edging higher in early trading, save for the NASDAQ. As before, we expect one eye trained on earnings today and another on the latest doings in Washington, where the two political sides seek to work out a spending accord.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: January 17, 2018Harvey S.
