Market Week: August 21, 2017

The Markets (as of market close August 18, 2017)

Last week saw domestic and global conflicts heighten investors’ concerns, pushing stocks lower in what was a slow week for trading. The Dow lost over 270 points last Thursday, offsetting robust gains the prior Monday. The S&P 500 fell 0.65%, while the Nasdaq dropped .64% last week. Once again, the biggest fall struck the small-cap Russell 2000, which lost 1.20% for the week and is essentially at its 2016 year-end closing value, having lost all of the gains amassed during 2017. Long-term bond prices remained the same as the yield on 10-year Treasuries was unchanged from the prior week.
