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.”
