The Markets Amid a flood of mostly positive economic data and what at first blush appears to be good news from Ukraine, nearly all market sectors finished the short week in positive territory. Even surprises from the European Central Bank and Friday’s jobs numbers seemed to have minimal impact on investors, as the S&P 500 […]

The Nasdaq reached a level it hadn’t seen since┬áMarch 2000, the S&P 500 had its 28th record close of the year, and the Dow industrials’ gains took the index above 17,000 once again. The Russell […]
