Domestic equities managed to shake off five days of losses with a rousing bounce of nearly 200 points in the Dow after Friday’s robust jobs report. For once, investors seemed to be more focused on the positive implications of generally encouraging economic data than on whether good news would accelerate Fed tapering. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq ended the week basically flat, while the small caps of the Russell 2000 had their worst week in a month.Read More

Sprint to the finish: As economic data delayed by the federal government shutdown began to trickle in and the Fed continued to hold off on tapering, investors continued to drive equities to record levels. The Dow industrials hit 12 new all-time closing highs during the month, which helped push the index above 16,000. The S&P 500 set its 38th new record of the year and made history by rising above 1,800 for the first time ever. While the Nasdaq is still well below its all-time record of 5048.62, set in March 2000, it did manage to surpass 4,000; the last time that happened, Al Gore and George Bush were a month away from their first presidential debate. And if the Nasdaq were to remain at Friday’s level through the rest of the year, it would record the seventh best year in its history; if the small-cap Russell 2000 did the same, it would have had its fourth best year ever.*Read More
The Dow industrials and the S&P 500 continued to set all-time records with an eighth consecutive week of gains for both. And though the Nasdaq remained far from its all-time high, it finally managed to surpass the 4,000 threshold last seen more than 13 years ago. Meanwhile, the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield remained stable.Read More
