Market Week: March 6th, 2017

The Markets (as of market close March 3, 2017)

The Dow reached 21115 last Wednesday, then fell back a bit, but still closed the week over 21000. The S&P 500 marked its sixth consecutive week of gains, while the Global Dow led the way, climbing over 1.0% by last week’s end. Of the benchmarks listed here, only the Russell 2000 fell, but only slightly. Following President Trump’s speech to Congress last Tuesday evening, stocks soared Wednesday before retreating Thursday and Friday while bond yields soared, possibly in response to Fed Chair Janet Yellen’s indication that interest rates are likely to be raised when the Committee next meets later this month.
