Stock Market Rally: Dow, S&P Hit New Highs
Amid the current stock market rally, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 hit record highs Monday.
Meanwhile, the tech-heavy Nasdaq regained its key 50-day moving average on Thursday and moved past resistance around the 13,600 level, extending a win streak to three sessions.
Thursday’s Big Picture commented, “On Thursday, the Nasdaq added 1.8% after gapping up at the open, in a second straight day of solid gains. The composite closed just above its 50-day moving average after spending two weeks below it. But don’t take that as an absolutely positive sign. It would do the Nasdaq some good if it can make a decisive move above that line. Also, the Nasdaq is coming up against a test of possible resistance around the 13,600 level.”
