8:30 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST
After a 10 AM selloff yesterday, after the release of another disappointing economic report, the Dow Jones ended the day up +122 points; the S&P 500 gained +23 points; and the Nasdaq advanced +87 points.
A surprisingly weak reading from the Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing index has already heightened Wall Street’s blood pressure. Fears of a spillover into the wider economy were reinforced Thursday when the ISM said its non-manufacturing index, which measures activity among service providers such as banks, restaurants and hotels, fell to its lowest level since August 2016.
