Dow Jones Today
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 0.7% Monday midday. The S&P 500 erased early gains to trade flat, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq reversed 0.4% lower after giving up opening gains.
Among exchange traded funds, the Innovator IBD 50 (FFTY) tumbled to a nearly 3% loss Monday. Nasdaq 100 tracker Invesco QQQ Trust ETF (QQQ) moved 0.5% lower. Meanwhile, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) defended a 0.1% advance.
Stock Market Rally Continues
The major stock indexes looked to rebound from Friday’s sharp losses, as the Nasdaq and S&P 500 hoped to snap losing streaks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gave up its key 50-day line last week.
Friday’s The Big Picture column commented, “After two weeks of gains, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq fell 1.6% and 1.7% for the past week. In all, the losses did not knock indexes out of their longer-term uptrend. But that uptrend has seen its share of pullbacks, and another downward phase appears to be unfolding.”
