Kohl's and TJX earnings on Tuesday will be highlights for investors as markets deal with yet another round of Trump criticizing the Federal Reserve.
Global equity markets rose on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 setting a new record high, as strong earnings and economic growth fueled stocks, while the dollar weakened after U.S. President Donald Trump slammed the Federal Reserve for raising interest rates. The S&P 500 rose as much as 0.57 percent to 2,873.23, above its previous record high of 2,872.87 set on Jan. 26. "Remarkably, even at this point – a new all-time record and on the verge of being the longest bull market in history – it's got some room to run," said David Kelly, chief global strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management in New York.
Technology stocks and banks also rose. The rally briefly placed the S&P 500 on track for an all-time high. The benchmark index of large U.S. companies was hovering just below its last closing high set seven months ago.
U.S. stocks rise Tuesday, with the S&P 500 setting an intraday high, as a recent uptrend put the market on track to extend gains for a fourth straight session.
The S&P 500 index midday Tuesday booked its first intraday record since late January. The S&P 500 index (SPX) hit an intraday peak at 2,873.23, pushing the broad-market benchmark above 2,872.87, which represented its last record on Jan. 26. The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) have been steadily gaining altitude since slipping into correction territory, defined as a drop of at least 10% from a recent peak, on Feb. 8.
The index's bull-market run is now 3,452 days old and on Wednesday will be the longest such streak in history, at least for some market watchers. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 128.98 points, or 0.5 percent, to 25,887.67 and the Nasdaq Composite added 75.26 points, or 0.96 percent, to 7,896.27.
The benchmark S&P 500 edged closer to a record high on Tuesday, matching its longest-ever bull-market run, as U.S. stocks rose after some encouraging earnings reports and on hopes that the United States and China could resolve their tariff dispute. At its session high, the S&P 500 was 0.06 percent shy of its Jan. 26 all-time high.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite are on the climb too, as if all major benchmark indexes are holding hands to rally into a milestone some investors are celebrating. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has risen more than 100 points, or 0.3%, to 25,835.65. The Nasdaq Composite has gained 0.6% to 7870.56, proving technology stocks still have mettle. The expectation, following Monday's modest gains, seems to be that this bull will break a record on Aug. 22—the day some say this one will lap the 1990-2000 bull market and secure the title for longest secular bull run in history.
Technically speaking, the S&P 500 has nailed major support mid-month and rallied to challenge record highs, writes Michael Ashbaugh.
