for Week Ending 1/19/2018

 

Third up week for majors & more records as the Dow crossed & closed above 26,000, posting the fastest 1,000 point gain in history (12 calendar days). For the week the DOW rose 268 points or 1.04%, the S&P added 22 points or 0.80%, while the NASDAQ jumped 75 pts or 1.04%. Initial US weekly jobless claims fell to their lowest levels since 1973 at 220,000, as businesses struggled to find workers for jobs. Have a good weekend! Ed
