Market Update for July 16, 2018

In today's update:

1) Stocks closed mostly lower today as earnings season heated up and blew away one very significant sector. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 44.95 points, the S&P 500 fell 2,88 points while the Nasdaq 100 closed lower by 20.26 points and the Russell 2000 finished lower by 8.54 points.

2) Crude Oil Futures were hammered again today dropping $3.09 or 4.35% on news that OPEC has agreed to increase output. Gold Futures traded flat while the Bond market closed lower despite a late day rally and the yield on the 10-year treasury note moved up to 2.852.

3) A strong earnings report from Bank of America (BAC) sent the whole financial sector higher while a disappointing earnings release from Netflix (NFLX) is causing a big sell-off in the after-hours trading session for tech stocks. Amazon's website crashed at the start of their Prime Day event but the stock closed at a fresh new all-time high once again
