    Stock-market leaders yet to be undercut by trade-war fears

    Nasdaq on pace for double-digit gains for first half of 2018Trade tensions continue to dominate headlines. The threat of a full-blown U.S.-China trade war is having less impact on both investor sentiment and stock prices than might be expected, judging by double-digit gains for the Nasdaq and modest but positive returns for the S&P 500 so far this year. To a large degree, the prospect of a wider trade conflict hasn’t been enough to untrack the market leaders that lifted Wall Street throughout the first half of 2018 — albeit with higher volatility.

    Beware of the Russell 2000, but should you buy the Dow Jones Industrial Average?

    The four major markets are the Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI), S&P 500 Index (^GSPC), Nasdaq 100 Index (XNAS:NDX) and Russell 2000 Index (^RUT). Some might argue that the Nasdaq Composite Index (^IXIC) is more important than the Nasdaq 100, but the Nasdaq Composite also has many small-cap stocks that are already included in the Russell 2000, so the Nasdaq 100 is a better indicator overall. With that, the Russell 2000 and the Nasdaq 100 are higher-beta markets, but with one material difference.

    Global shares rise, oil prices jump on OPEC news

"The market's saying we're a little nervous about a trade war but we really don't think there will be one," Gail Dudack, chief investment strategist at Dudack Research Group, said.

    Dow snaps losing streak on energy lift

    The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed on Friday, as the Dow put to rest an eight-day losing streak with a boost from energy stocks, but losses in the technology space kept the Nasdaq in check. Exxon Mobil rose 2.1 percent and Chevron gained 2.0 percent, as the two biggest boosts to the S&P. The S&P energy index was up 2.2 percent, as the sector notched its strongest day in June. A rally in oil prices due to OPEC's earlier decision to restrict supply in an effort to drain global inventories has given the sector a gain of more than 11 percent for the quarter-to-date, best among the 11 major S&P groups.

    Dow halts skid at 8 straight sessions, but stock market ends the week lower amid trade jitters

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Friday closed higher, ending an eight-session slide that drove the broader market to weekly loss, amid rising global trade tensions. The Dow (DJIA) closed up about 120 points, or 0.5%, at 24,581, avoiding a nine-day slide, which would have marked its longest since 1978. Sharp gains in shares of McDonald's Corp. (MCD) up 2.7% and UnitedHealth Group Inc. (UNH) were among the components that supported an advance in the price-weighted Dow.

    Intraday Update: It's the Dow's Turn Today, but Small's Still a Winner

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up more than 150 points today and on the verge of breaking an eight-day losing streak as oil stocks surge following OPEC's decision to increase production. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is (finally) up today. There’s a lot riding on the Dow holding on to those gains through the rest of the afternoon: A ninth-consecutive negative close today would mark the index’s longest losing streak since February 1978, and only the 11th such period in its 122-year history.
