Stock Market Today: July 24, 2018
Harvey S. Katz, CFA | 07/24/2018
The stock market got off to a solid start this morning, but eased somewhat as the session progressed. At the close of the trading, the major averages were mixed. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 198 points, thanks, in part, to some encouraging profit reports. Meanwhile, the broader S&P 500 Index was up 13 points, and the technology heavy NASDAQ ended largely unchanged. Market breadth showed a divided performance, too, with declining issues just about even with advancers on the NYSE.
