4th Down Week, Retaliatory Tariffs From China, Jobless Claims Fall to 209k, Fed to Cut Rates Again?
for Week Ending 8/23/2019

 

Major indexes fell Friday as China announced retaliatory tariffs on the US, wiping out any gains for the week. For the week the Dow lost 257 pts or -0.99%, the S&P fell 41 pts or -1.44%, while the NASDAQ slid 144 pts or -1.83%. Jobless claims fell to 209,000 last week. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell signaled at Friday's annual Fed conference that the central bank may cut rates again and as soon as next month. Have a good weekend! Julie
