Market Update for July 5, 2018

In today's video:

1) The tech sector led the way again today, but this time, it helped U.S. equities close higher. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 181.92 points, the S&P 500 added 23.39 points while the Nasdaq 100 closed higher by 83.75 points and the Russell 2000 finished higher by 19.06 points.

2) Crude Oil Futures dropped 1.6% after an unexpected increase in the U.S. Crude stockpiles while Gold Futures gained another $4.00 on slight weakness in the U.S. dollar. The Bond market ended the day slightly higher and the yield on the 10-year treasury note is currently at 2.835.

3) There has been a lot of talk about the potential of a trade war lately and the rhetoric may get amplified tonight . As of midnight tonight, the Trump Administration is expected to Levy another $34 billion in tariffs on China and China is expected to retaliate in a significant fashion. This could have a negative effect on tomorrow's trading session.
