Yahoo Finance reporter Ines Ferre looks at how markets settled on Wednesday, bouncing back from its worst day since June 2020.
- All right, just a couple of minutes to the closing bell after a devastating day on Tuesday. Can the markets get over the hump on this hump day? Ines Ferre takes a look at the numbers. Hi there, Ines.
INES FERRE: Hi, Dave, and taking a look at the DOW right now in the final minute of trading. The DOW may be ending relatively flat, but the NASDAQ set to end in the green, up about 7/10 of a percent. But some choppy trading is what we saw today. Same situation with the S&P 500, up 3/10 of a percent right now. Taking a look under the hood, we're looking at the sectors, and energy has been really the outperformer today followed by consumer discretionary. I want to pull up a two day chart though so you can see between yesterday and today, where we're going to end.
Also taking a look at the NASDAQ 100, Tesla up more than 3%, part of the consumer discretionary. Also Amazon up 1.5%. Apple up 1%, so some of the mega caps seeing some gains. And over on the DOW, Honeywell being the underperformer.
