Today's Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Sage Therapeutics and Ionis Pharmaceuticals

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 24, 2018 / U.S. stocks finished in the red on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 falling for the 5th consecutive session, as a drop in Asian markets continued to raise global economic concerns. The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 0.50 percent to close at 25,191.43, while the S&P 500 Index decreased 0.55 percent to close at 2,740.69, its fifth consecutive daily drop. The Nasdaq Composite Index declined 0.42 percent to close at 7,437.54.

According to Frank Capelleri, executive director of equity sales and trading at Instinet LLC, “The issue lately is that while there have been pockets of positive action around, each day has had its culprits. On Monday, the financials’ big drop diluted the market’s attempt to bounce. On Tuesday, the S&P 500 was able to mount a substantial turn around, but this time energy was the obvious laggard.”
