Market Update for October 3, 2018

In today's video:

1) U.S. Equities closed modestly higher as investors are starting to get nervous about rising rates. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 54.45 points, the S&P 500 added to 2.08 points while the Nasdaq 100 closed higher by 25.54 points and the Russell 2000 finished higher by 15.25 points.

2) The Bond market traded sharply lower today after strong economic data lifting the 10-year treasury note to its highest level since 2011. Crude Oil Futures gained another $0.98 or 1.29% while Gold Futures pulled back $4.40 due to strength in the U.S. Dollar.

3) Rising rates are quickly becoming a point of concern for Equity markets and after today's strong ADP Employment report many traders and investors are taking notice. The 10-year treasury note is used to set the rate on many business and Consumer loans, including mortgages making it The Benchmark to watch.
