    Goldman, Apple stocks contribute 50 of Dow's 200-point rally

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading firmly higher on Monday, aided by a pop in shares of Apple Inc., and Goldman Sachs Group. Shares of Goldman , up $4.04., or 1.8%, were contributing about 27 points to the price-weighted Dow . Apple Inc.'s shares added about 22 points, ahead of the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant's latest iPhone on Tuesday. Goldman's shares may be tied to a rise in yields, with the 10-year benchmark Treasury note at 2.11% from 2.05% late Friday in New York. Higher yields are bullish for banks' lending models. A $1 move in any Dow component equates to a 6.89-point swing in the Dow. Overall , the market was enjoying a broad-based rally power by the financial sector and technology shares , both leading gains for the S&P 500 index . Most recently, the Dow was up 210 points, or 1%, at 22,008, the S&P 500 was 0.8% higher, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was looking at a gain of 1.2% at 6,433. The rally came in part as Hurricane Irma hit Florida with less force than expected and North Korea failed to conduct another nuclear missile test over the weekend, reviving investor appetite.

    Stock market holds steady after Fischer announces resignation from Fed

    U.S. stocks held on to slight gains Wednesday morning following news that Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer planned to step down from his key role in the U.S. central bank. Fischer, viewed as a centrist on the Fed, is expected to leave for personal reasons as early as next month. His departure potentially leaves two of the most important positions for the Fed in play, with Chairwoman Janet Yellen not expected to extend her term when it ends in coming months. The shifts occur as the central bank is normalizing interest-rate policy and gearing up to unwind its $4.5 trillion crisis-era balance sheet, both moves could have the effect of lifting borrowing costs for individuals and U.S. corporations. The market reaction to the news has been muted so far. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was tentatively higher up 0.3% at 21,813, the S&P 500 index was 0.2% higher at 2,462, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was trading flat at 6,370. Lower borrowing costs and an era of asset-purchases in the aftermath of the 2007-'09 financial crisis has underpinned rising asset values, market participants have said. The 10-year Treasury note was little changed at 2.07%, holding its lowest level since November as lingering jitters over geopolitical tensions with North Korea hurt risk appetite and fueled buying in so-called haven assets. Meanwhile, a measure of the U.S. dollar was 0.2% lower at 92.082. The ICE U.S. Dollar Index measures the buck against a basket of six currencies.

    Goldman's stock delivers 30-point boost to Dow industrials

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained some upward thrust Wednesday afternoon, with blue chips scoring a boost from Goldman Sachs. Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. , the world's most prominent investment bank, were up about $4.04, or 1.8%, contributing nearly 30 points to the price-weighted gauge. Each $1 move in the benchmark translates to a 6.84-point swing. Broadly speaking, financials, including Goldman, were benefiting from better-than-expected economic reports, including private-sector job growth at 237,000 in August, well above estimates for 185,000 and an update on U.S. economic growth showing U.S. GDP grew at a 3% pace in the second quarter. Those upbeat reports may support another rate hike for the Federal Reserve before the end of the year, market participants are betting. Higher rates tends to be a boon to a bank's lending models. Shares of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. were tilting higher, up 0.8%, while a broad gauge of the financial sector, the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF were the best performer among the S&P 500's 11 sectors early Wednesday. More broadly, the S&P 500 index was up 0.5%, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was trading 1% higher on the day.

    Dow ends slightly higher after Jackson Hole speeches; Nasdaq halts weekly skid

    U.S. stock benchmarks finished with slight gains Friday, halting weekly skids as European Central Bank President Mario Draghi and Federal Reserve boss Janet Yellen delivered speeches at Jackson Hole, Wyo. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 30.37 points, or 0.1%, at 21,813.67 Dow components Boeing Co. and Intel Corp. limited gains for blue chips. The S&P 500 index advanced 4.08 points, or 0.2%, at 2,443.05, while the Nasdaq Composite Index finished lower, down 5.68 points, or less than 0.1%, at 6,265.64. Still, the technology laden gauge halted a dubious streak of four consecutive weekly declines, with a roughly 0.8% gain. For the week, the Dow gained 0.6%, while the S&P 500 enjoyed a 0.7% return, with both benchmarks ending two straight weeks of declines. Earlier in the session, Yellen said the economy was stabilizing but made no specific remarks about monetary policy during her speech at the gathering of central bankers in Wyoming. Later Friday, Draghi said recoveries taking place in global economies are firming, though he said it was "at an earlier stage" in Europe and Japan. His remarks were interpreted as hawkish by investors, sending the euro surging against the dollar up at $1.1925, compared to $1.18 late Thursday in New York. U.S. equity markets, meanwhile, were given an early boost on the back of the possibility of tax reform following remarks made by Gary Cohn, the president's economic adviser. During a interview with the Financial Times he said the president was focused on getting tax reform done by the end of 2017. Tax cuts and other fiscal stimulus measures had been part of catalyst for stocks's rise to records after Trump's election victory in November. In that interview, Cohn also said he seriously considered resigning in response to Trump's reaction to a Charlottesville, Va., white-supremacist rally, however, the adviser and former Goldman Sachs executive decided against leaving. In other news, investors watched developments in the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Harvey was upgraded to a Category 3 storm.

    Dow holds on to gains as Draghi talks global economic stability at Jackson Hole

    U.S. stock benchmarks were trading higher Friday afternoon, and looked set to book weekly advances as Mario Draghi delivered a highly anticipated speech at Jackson Hole, Wyo. Although Draghi didn't offer clues about monetary policy, he did say that recoveries taking place in global economies are firming, though he said it was "at an earlier stage" in Europe and Japan. The statement was enough to send the euro surging against the dollar up at $1.1925, compared to $1.18 late Thursday in New York.
