Main content

U.S. equity market indexes were slightly higher leading into the holiday weekend with the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq posting gains. Internationally, the Stoxx Europe 600 and U.K. FTSE 100 gained; Asian markets were mixed. This activity followed a lukewarm jobs report and a week of speculation over the next Federal Reserve rate hike. Oil dropped for the period and gold was relatively flat. The ten-year U.S. Treasury yield was unchanged from the previous week.
