Almost back? – Here’s what you need to know…

Stock Market Update for Tuesday, February 13th, 2018


The major indices opened lower and traded sideways for most of the morning.

After the choppy morning, stocks finally got a boost in the afternoon. This rally lifted the major indices into positive territory, where they remained at the close.

Stocks finished higher for the 3rd day in a row. But we still have a ways to go to make up for last week’s losses.

With today’s gains, the S&P and DOW are almost back in positive territory for the year. The S&P is currently down 0.4% year-to-date and the DOW is down 0.3% this year.

Here’s where the major indices ended the day:

  • The S&P finished with a 0.3% gain. Up 7 points, the S&P ended at 2,663.
  • The DOW ended 0.2% higher. Adding 39 points, the DOW closed at 24,640.
  • The NASDAQ was up 0.5% With a 32 point gain, the NASDAQ finished at 7,014.
  • Bitcoin was down 2.1%. Losing $185, Bitcoin is trading at $8,623.

Crude Oil (CL) finished the day with losses. Down 0.5%, CL closed at $58.97 a barrel…which is the first close below $59 since December.

Under Armour (UAA) was up nicely after better than expected earnings. UAA ended the day with a 17.4% gain. And Amazon (AMZN) had a solid day as well, ending the session with a 2.0% gain.

Looking at the economic calendar, things pick up tomorrow. Tomorrow’s CPI report is getting a lot of attention since the Fed uses consumer prices to monitor inflation. The calendar features CPI Data and Retail Sales Data at 8:30am ET and Crude Oil Inventories at 10:30am ET.
