  1. 10-Year yield nears 3% and investors get jumpy

    Stocks opened in slightly positive territory on Friday but those minor gains were quickly erased and the bears took charge for most of the day. The indices ended the day off their lows after a late push higher into the close, but the losses were still fairly large. The Nasdaq trailed with a loss of 1.27% while the Dow, down 202-points, each lost about 0.8%. Bonds took another hit, and that seems to be a concern.

  2. Rising bond yields concern investors

    We saw a negative reversal day on Wednesday and that put some pressure on stocks early on Thursday. After the initial weak open, there was an attempt to push higher, but that failed rather quickly. The selling did not accelerate into the close so the dip buyers were trying to push back. The Dow ended with a loss of 83-points, which was well off the nearly 200-point loss at midday.

  3. Dow down but broader indices up

    Stocks chopped around quite a bit on Wednesday, coming off the best levels by the close, but the results were mixed in the various indices. The Dow lost 39-points and Big Blue (IBM) shaved 60 points off the Dow as it was down 7.5% yesterday. The S&P 500, Nasdaq, the I-fund and small caps posted small to moderate gains, while the Transports had a big earnings driven rally.

  4. Netflix leads rally. IBM flounders after close

    Stocks rallied on Tuesday with tech stocks leading the way. The Dow gained 214-points, or 0.87%, the Nasdaq gained 1.74%, and the S&P and small caps gained just over 1%. The I-fund lagged and Bonds were up slightly.

  5. Rally off the lows continues on light volume

    Stocks bounced back, after Friday's modest losses, and the Dow closed up 213-points on the day, which was almost a relief rally following nerves heading into the weekend. The indices did close off the highs, but it's been rather quiet with light volume out there which may be signaling a bit of uncertainty from investors.
