Dow Has Biggest Point Gain In History

Markets Right Now US stocks waver in midday trading

IG Market Analyst Kyle Rodda says a lot has transpired during the Christmas period to affect the Australian markets, including vast sell-offs in certain markets, and an ample bounce in US Stocks.

USA stocks were attempting a modest rebound on Wednesday, boosted by technology shares and an Amazon-led jump in retailers, following four sessions of steep losses that pushed the S&P 500 and Dow Industrials near bear market territory.

Analysts also took heart from a almost nine percent jump in U.S. oil prices, the biggest in more than two years and another bounce back following recent weakness in petroleum markets.

Concerns about the economic growth outlook, the U.S. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks picked up 62.89 points, or 5 percent, at 1,329.81. Traders and investors, cited by Reuters, said that technical market factors also contributed to the rally. By some technical measures, the S&P was its most oversold in years following the December 24 Christmas Eve sell off. The Nasdaq gained 361.44 points, or 5.8 percent, to 6,554.36. (No typo: There are 505 stocks in the S&P 500.) The previous record, at least as far back as 28 years ago, was 99.6 percent in 2011, or 498 stocks out of 500.

A late report that a US government delegation will travel to Beijing in two weeks to hold trade talks gave stocks a final push higher. The benchmark S&P 500 gained 5 percent or 116 points to 2,467. "You can not make the assumption that this correction is over, but today's action is definitely a very positive signal". Eastern Time. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 731 points, or 3.4 percent, to 22,524.

People walk on Wall Street in front of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York February 6, 2018. It will take more than tweets from the day-trader in chief to pull markets out of the doldrums for any sustained period.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average slumped 400 points in late-afternoon trading after dropping as much as 611 points earlier. Marathon Petroleum rose 4.8 percent to $56.93.

CNBC noted, "Retailers were among the best performers on Wednesday, with the SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) jumping 4.4 percent". Only one of the S&P 500's components, Newmont Mining, finished down on the day. But despite the surge on December 26, it remained on pace for its biggest monthly percentage drop since February 2009, during the throes of the financial crisis. So I think it's a tremendous opportunity to buy.

White House economic advisor Kevin Hassett sought to reassure on Powell's prospects, telling ABC News the Fed chief is "100 per cent" safe. The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates - it indicated two more increases may arrive in 2019 following four this year- and other central banks are stepping off the accelerator on stimulus for their economies, which remove big supports.

Some of what Wall Street sees coming out of the White House has added to the market's uncertainty, specifically the president's attacks on the Fed and remarks about the ongoing trade conflict with China.

Perrigo gave up 6.6 percent to $38, one of the big decliners in the health care sector. Overall, U.S. consumers spent over $850 billion this holiday season, according to Mastercard.
