Stock Market Today: July 24, 2017
William G. Ferguson and Adam Rosner | 07/24/2017
The U.S. stock market opened lower this morning, but seems to be recovering somewhat. At just past noon in New York, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is down roughly 52 points; the S&P 500 Index is off three points; and the NASDAQ is ahead nominally. Market breadth is slightly negative, as decliners are still outnumbering advancers on the NYSE. Most of the market sectors are trading in negative territory, with notable weakness in the utility and basic materials issues. In contrast, the financial names are bucking the downtrend.
