Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) Extends Win Streak As These Key Stocks Rally
The Dow Jones Industrial Average extended its win streak in the stock market today, thanks to a relief rally of sorts, as China waived tariffs on 16 U.S. products.
The Nasdaq surged 1.1%. The Dow Jones industrials gained 0.8% and the S&P 500 0.7%. Small caps tracked by the Russell 2000, up 2.1%, outpaced their big-cap peers by a wide margin. Preliminary data, though, showed lower volume on the NYSE and Nasdaq vs. Tuesday.
The Dow Jones index stretched its winning streak for a sixth straight session. It’s now just 1% shy of a record high.
Boeing (BA), up 3.1%, was among leading Dow Jones winners. The stock is starting the right side of a six-month consolidation with a potential 446.11 buy point. But it has some work ahead, at about 14% below the left-side high. On Wednesday, CEO Dennis Muilenberg said he still expects Boeing’s 737 MAX jet, which has been grounded for months since a pair of crashes, to resume service in Q4.
Apple (AAPL) was the biggest Dow gainer. Shares rose 3.2%, climbing past a 221.47 flat-base buy point in twice normal trade, according to MarketSmith chart analysis. The stock remains in buy range, which goes up to 232.54.
Intel (INTC) and Cisco (CSCO) added nearly 2% each, further padding gains to the blue chip Dow. Intel, which extended its win streak to six, is back above its 200-day moving average and is 11% off its high.
