  1. Early rally, selling late... again

    For a third straight day we saw stocks open near their highs of the day, then close near the lows. The Dow just 11-points but also gave away an early triple digit gain. The S&P 500 and small caps saw minor losses but the Nasdaq performed well after Treasury Secretary Mnuchin told CNBC that the U.S. and China were close to a trade deal.

  2. May 2019 Jobs Report

    U.S. creates just 75,000 jobs in May and wage growth slows in warning sign for economy

The Dow lost 135-points, or -0.51%, but that was well off the morning lows as investors bought up those lows. The S&P 500 was flat, the Nasdaq led on the upside, while small caps and the Transports struggled. The dollar was up and bonds were down slightly.

  4. Fed hikes and says two more coming. Market whines

    Stocks were flying high early on Wednesday as investors were expecting the Fed to rescue them from the recent bearish action, and Powell did basically what most expected, but it wasn't enough. The stock market wanted a more dovish stance, so the Dow turned a nearly 400-point mid-afternoon gain, into a 352-point loss by the close. It was a 1.5% loss for stocks on the day, but 3% off the highs, so it felt much worse. Volume was very high as we've come to expect on Fed days.
