Critical information ahead of the U.S. market’s open
by Barbara Kollmeyer
Thrillseekers, look elsewhere — at the Final Four, Hollywood starlets stumping for presidential candidates, craps tables, maybe. Yes, this stock market is starting to look a little dull.
The Dow industrials had a trading range of 90.78 points from the low to high on Monday. That’s the narrowest range since Christmas Eve 2015, when the index had a high/low range of 62.39 points. For the S&P 500, Monday marked the sixth day of a trading range of less than 20 points. That’s the longest streak of its kind since a six-day run on Aug. 5, 2015.
Some are no doubt just fine with that home-on-the-range trading and with a lesser serving of excitement than was doled out at the start of the year.
