NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 21, 2017 / Geopolitical concerns combined with the resignation of multiple advisors to President Trump pressured markets lower last week. On Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.35 percent to close at 21,674.51, down 0.84 percent for the week, while the S&P 500 Index fell 0.18 percent to close at 2,425.55, down 0.64 percent for the week. The NASDAQ Composite Index decreased 0.09 percent to close at 6,216.53, down 0.65 percent for the week.

"Longer-term trends at this point remain intact, so this remains a short-term pullback only. And it's tough to make too much of this," said Mark Newton, managing member at Newton Advisors, in a note, according to CNBC.
