Dow industrials book longest win streak in 12 weeks

The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday put in its lengthiest streak of gains--three in a row--since February, according to FactSet data. The Dow's third straight finish in the green is notable because the blue-chip gauge had gone 60 straight trading sessions without stringing together a series of wins that long. Its longest streak this year was a 12-session rally on Feb. 27. From that point, the Dow has moved in fits and starts as doubts about President Donald Trump's ability to implement a pro-growth agenda, including tax cuts and a boost to infrastructure spending, have intensified, threatening a mulitmonth climb in risk assets that had been propelled by those presidential campaign promises. Worries about the president's ability to gain sufficient consensus in Congress to get his policies passed into law have escalated since Trump fired then-director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, two week ago, sparking a firestorm inside and outside of Washington. On Monday, U.S. equity markets were attempting to bounce back from a downbeat week, highlighted by sharp losses on May 17. However, since last Wednesday, the broader stock market has erased much of its losses, suggesting that a general uptrend for equities may still be intact. The Dow finished up 0.4% at 20,894, the S&P 500 index closed 0.5% higher at 2,394, while the Nasdaq Composite Index registered a rise of 0.8% at 6,133.

Stocks gain for third session as tech stocks rally

U.S. stocks rose Monday as strong tech shares and so-called defensive sectors led the market higher for a third session. Defensive stocks are those that are viewed as less sensitive to the economic cycle such as utilities and consumer staples. However, trading volume remained subdued amid lingering concerns about political uncertainty surrounding President Donald Trump's administration. The S&P 500 added 12 points, or 0.5%, to close at 2,393. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 90 points, or 0.4%, to end at 20,894 while the Nasdaq Composite Index climbed 49 points, or 0.8%, to close at 6,133.

S&P 500's rally puts it within reach of last week's pre-collapse level

The S&P 500 index on Monday was just about six points shy of its Tuesday closing levels--the day before the overall stock market endured its sharpest daily collapse in months. The S&P 500 was recently trading up about 13 points, or 0.6%, at 2,394, which puts the broad-market gauge just shy of its close of 2,400.67 last Tuesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.5% at 20,903, about 75 points from its Tuesday finish at 20,979.75, while the Nasdaq Composite Index , which endured the sharpest decline of the major U.S. equity benchmarks on Wednesday, was up 0.9% at 6,135, compared with 6,169.87 at the close of trade Tuesday. The trading action marks a relatively rapid rebound for the U.S. equity market, which is on track to log its third straight advance after suffering its worst one-day decline of 2017, following heightened worries about President Donald Trump's ability to make good on promises to put forth market-friendly policies. A series of reports, implying that he obstructed justice in firing then-director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, who had been investigating ties between Russia and members of Trump's presidential campaign, has been at the heart of Wall Street's recent concerns.
