While the market seems largely immune to trade tensions - warning signs on the horizon signal more upheaval to come. Yahoo Finance's Seana Smith, Adam Shapiro, Andy Serwer and Grant Bughman of UBS Asset Management discuss.
Investors are keeping their money in stocks, despite the volatile market. Yahoo Finance’s Alexis Christoforous speaks with Sam Stovall of CFRA.
October is living up to its reputation as a volatile month for stocks with major indexes down sharply and there is likely more pain ahead for investors, according to one prominent Wall Street analyst.
U.S. stocks fall Monday, with the S&P 500 poised for its fourth day of losses, as a touch of earnings-season anxiety dogged investors.
The Dow swung between gains and losses of more than 100 points, highlighting the choppiness in U.S. equities as they struggle to recover from a recent selloff even as the earnings season gathers steam. The market opened higher, boosted by a surge in China stocks and positive sentiment across Europe on Moody's decision to keep Italy's sovereign rating outlook stable.
On October 12–19, US equity indexes had mixed performances. Last week, the S&P 500 (SPY) and the S&P Mid-Cap 400 (IVOO) were unchanged, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DIA) rose 0.4%, respectively. Energy stocks form ~5.9%, 5.1%, and 5.2%, respectively, of these equity indexes.
A broad slide led by energy companies and banks pulled U.S. stocks lower Monday, extending the market's recent string of losses. Technology companies were doing better than the rest of the market. The losses, which had the benchmark S&P 500 index on track for a four-day losing streak, came as traders geared up for a busy week of corporate earnings reports. Toy makers slumped after Hasbro's latest quarterly results disappointed investors.
Corporate earnings over the past two weeks gave investors an injection of much-needed good cheer, with most of the roughly 20% of S&P 500 companies to report thus far bearing expectations. Yet these positive numbers may mask some troubling signs, analysts say.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded lower Monday after closing last week with a gain of 0.4%. The S&P 500 also fell into negative territory. The S&P 500 has closed lower in 10 of the past 12 sessions.
The S&P 500 fell 10 points, or 0.37%, to 2,757.59 as of 10:00 AM ET (14:00 GMT), while the Dow decreased 86 points, or 0.34%, to 25,358.11 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite was down 12 points, or 0.17%, to 7,436.46.
