U.S. stock market ends lower Monday but off low as tech and communication-services stocks slumpU.S. stocks ended slightly lower Monday, weighed by declines technology and tech-related shares, as concerns about inflation continued to buffet Wall Street, following the worst week for stocks since Feb. 26. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished about 0.2% lower at 34,328, off the low for the day at 34,176.65, with shares of Walt Disney & Co. and Home Depot leading the blue-chip benchmark's slide. The S&P 500 index closed off 0.3% at roughly 4,163, led lower by technology and communicatiion-services shares, while the Nasdaq Composite Index retreated 0.4% to 13,379, off a low of 13,265. The slump for stocks came as gold futures jumped, settling above their 200-day moving average and marking the highest finish for the most-active contract since early February. Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Richard Clarida, the Fed's No.2, said the U.S. economy had yet to reach the "substantial further progress" that would be needed to peel back accommodative policies, even as investors fear that inflation is set to run hotter than the central bank is predicting. In corporate news, AT&T shares fell 2.7% after it agreed to combine media assets with Discovery Inc. and spin them off into a new, publicly traded company. Shares of Disovery fell more than 5%.

S&P 500 notches 28th record close of 2020 but stock market posts tepid gain on WednesdayU.S. stock benchmarks finished the session slightly higher on Wednesday, with the slight gains enough to notch a fresh all-time high for the S&P 500 index. Gains for the broad-market benchmark were driven by a surge in the energy sector, up 3%, and financials, 1.1% higher, to help the S&P 500 eke out a 0.2% gain to reach 3,669, despite over 1% declines in materials and real estate. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished 0.2% higher, as an 8.5% decline in Salesforce.com , after its announced $27.7 billion buy of Slack Technologies was officially announced late Tuesday, was offset by gains in Boeing Co. , Goldman Sachs , Walt Disney Co. , Chevron Corp. , American Express Co. and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. . The Nasdaq Composite, however, finished less than 0.1% lower at 12,349. Markets turned positive late in the session after Democratic congressional leaders a coronavirus fiscal stimulus proposal that has bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress on Wednesday. In economic reports, U.S. businesses created 307,000 private-sector jobs in November, ADP said Wednesday, marking the smallest increase in four months and suggesting a record increase in coronavirus cases has hurt hiring. Markets have mostly been trending higher on the back of vaccines to fight COVID-19. That said, an account of business conditions from the Federal Reserve's business districts, the Beige Book, indicated that worry about economic expansion without fresh economic relief was weighing on activity.

Dow books 373-point gain, Nasdaq marks 31st record and S&P 500 ends 1.7% from its all-time high as everything ralliesU.S. stocks ended at or near records Wednesday, with the S&P 500 finishing within a stone's throw of its February all-time high and the Nasdaq Composite notching its 31st record high of 2020. Hope of further stimulus from the U.S. government to help out-of-work Americans was attributed to some of the upbeat trade on Wall street, even as some of the data have come in weaker than expected, setting the stage for a jobs report on Friday that may underscore that a rise in infections of COVID-19 stalled out some of the recent resurgence in business activity created by social-distancing measures to contain the virus. Payroll provider Automatic Data Processing Inc. also said only 167,000 private-sector jobs were created in July, far short of the 1.88 million forecast by economists polled by Econoday. However, a reading of services from the Institute for Supply Management service sector index jumped to a reading of 58.1 in July, beating expectations and signalling stronger economic growth. Deal activity also sparked some optimism as Teladoc Health Inc. and Livongo Health Inc. said Wednesday they have agreed to merge in a deal valued at $18.5 billion to create a company that can serve a spectrum of health needs, using virtual care. A nearly 9% surge in shares of Walt Disney Co. following its quarterly results, also helped to lift the Dow and the broader market. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up about 373 points, or 1.4%, at 27,201, representing its highest closing level since June 8. The S&P 500 index finished 0.6% higher at around 3,328, putting the broad-market benchmark 1.71% off its Feb. 19 record high at 3,386.15, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed up 0.5% to 10,992, briefly touching the psychologically round-number level at 11,000 intraday and marking another record finish. The tech-heavy index has closed higher six straight sessions. Gaines for equities also came as gold prices finished at a record near 2,050, based on futures for December delivery , highlighting some concerns about the pace of stock gains and the outsize sums that governments have doled out to limit the harm from the COVID-19 pandemic.

S&P 500 trades within 2% of record high as Wall Street focuses on Disney subscriber growth and hope for fresh round of coronaviirus aidU.S. stocks rose at the start of trading Wednesday as corporate earnings results continued to roll in, and investors pored over a disappointing jobs report from payroll provider Automatic Data Processing Inc. . The payroll company said only 167,000 private sector jobs were created in July, short of the consensus estimate for a gain of 1.88 million jobs, according to Econoday. However, better-than-expected quarterly results late Tuesday from Dow component and entertainment and theme park giant Walt Disney Co. , even though it reported a $3.5 billion loss, helped to fuel some bullishness in markets. On top of that, the Federal Reserve's No. 2, Richard Clarida, told CNBC that he's sticking to his prior forecast of an improving economy over the remainder of the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 266 points, or 1%, at 27,094, around its highest level since June 8, while the S&P 500 index gained 0.6% to 3,326, putting the broad-market benchmark within 2% of its Feb. 19 record high at 3,386.15. The Nasdaq Composite Index , meanwhile, rose 0.3% to 10,978, which puts the tech-heavy index on pace for its 31st record close of 2020, which would already match last year's full-year record tally for the gauge.
