- All right, we're just minutes away from the closing bell. And Yahoo Finance's Ines Ferre is here with us to check a look at the markets. Did we hang on to some positives, my friend? How are you?

INES FERRE: We did, Dave. And it looks like the NASDAQ, out of the major averages, is going to be the biggest winner. Up about 1 and 1/2 percent right now as we go into these final minutes of trading. The S&P 500 up 8/10 of a percent. And the Dow up about 1/2 of a percent, or 175 points.

And take a look at the Russell 2000. The small caps up more than 2% right now. Looking at the sectors, the leaders today were Consumer Discretionary and also Energy, along with Communication Services and Technology.

Looking at the NASDAQ 100, take a look at the mega caps. Amazon, part of Consumer Discretionary, up more than 2 and 1/2 percent. Tesla up almost 5%. We're also watching Nvidia up about 5%. Nvidia will be reporting its results after the bell today.

And the rest of the Semis also seeing some green. The Travel stocks also in the green today. You've got Expedia up almost 6%. The hotels are also higher. And we've also been taking a look at the Retail space after Dick's reported its quarterly results.

Well, Dick's Sporting Goods is going to be ending the session in the green, up more than 9%. Turning positive today after management on the conference call clarified that they were slashing their guidance out of an abundance of caution about the US consumer. So, that sent the stock higher.
