Market Week: February 6, 2017

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

Stocks fell early last week, with the Dow dropping below 20000, while yields on long-term Treasuries receded as prices climbed with increased demand. However, news that the Fed was not raising interest rates this month, coupled with a favorable jobs report and the potential for regulatory reductions from the White House, seemed to rally equities by week’s end. Only the Dow and Global Dow could not quite reach their prior week’s closing values, as each of the other indexes listed here posted gains. The Nasdaq is up over 5.0% year-to-date compared to -12.8% over the same period in 2016.
