WEEKLY MARKET OUTLOOK WEBINAR
Stocks edged up for a fourth straight day to score another round of records Wednesday, supported by rosier U.S. economic data and ongoing hopes for a U.S. – China trade deal, but Wall Street trading volumes were thinner than usual ahead of the Thanksgiving Day holiday Thursday.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 42.32 points or 0.15% at 28,164.00 for a record, while the S&P 500 gained 13.11 points or 0.42% to 3,153.63 and the Nasdaq ended up 57.24 points or 0.66% at 8,705.18.
Investors waded through a heavy round of U.S. economic data Wednesday, including a revised estimate of third-quarter GDP that showed the U.S. economy expanded at a 2.1% annual pace versus a previous estimate of 1.9%.
U.S. consumer spending rose in October for the eighth month in a row, a potentially good sign for the holiday shopping season that gets underway after Thanksgiving with Black Friday specials.
The Federal Reserve’s Beige Book also reported that U.S. businesses have seen continued growth in economic activity, wages and prices during recent weeks, and they maintain a generally positive outlook.
Wall Street stocks again hit new all-time highs on Wednesday following better-than-expected US economic data, finishing buoyantly in the week’s last full session of the holiday-shortened week.
