Today's Research Reports on Trending Tickers: BioPharmX and DURECT

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 27, 2018 / U.S. markets rebounded on Tuesday after experiencing steep losses the past week due to growing trade tensions. The Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 0.12 percent to close at 24,283.11, while the S&P 500 Index gained 0.22 percent to close at 2,723.06. The Nasdaq Composite Index jumped 0.39 percent to close at 7,561.63.

"The market is trading more on sentiment than fundamentals lately, which means moves are likely to be fickle and short lived," said Liz Young, senior investment strategist at BNY Mellon Investment Management, according to MarketWatch.

"We feel that while momentum around trade is escalating, we’re still in a place where it’s in every nation’s best interest to avoid that outcome, and that things could calm down as negotiations progress," she said. "In the meantime, the economy is still strong, data is moving in the right direction, and we don’t see this as the issue that will turn things around."
