Market Update for Aug 6, 2019

In today's update:

1) U.S. Equity markets bounced slightly and made back part of yesterday's losses after China's currency stabilizes. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 311.78 or 1.21%, the S&P 500 added 37.03 or 1.30% while the NASDAQ 100 closed higher by 107.22 or 1.39% and the Russell 2000 finished higher by 14.67 or 0.99%.

3) Earnings season continues with Disney (DIS) and Wynn Resorts (WYNN) reporting after-market close. DIS missed analysts expectations and showed increased losses in its streaming business after investments in Hulu and ESPN while WYNN reported better-than-expected numbers.
