January 13 – 17 Recap

Stocks Surge to Consecutive Records

U.S. equity markets surged last week on investor optimism surrounding the completion and signing of the so-called “phase one trade deal” with China. Solid fourth quarter earnings reports from most of Wall Street’s largest banks also helped boost optimism. The S&P 500 posted four closing all-time highs last week, one more than the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index, Europe’s broadest measure of equity performance, also closed at a record high on Friday, up the most since mid-December.

Weekly Performance

For the week, the Dow Industrials rose 1.82%, the S&P 500 climbed nearly 2% (+1.99%), and the Nasdaq Composite surged 2.29%. On Wednesday, the Dow finished above 29,000 for the first time and all three U.S. equity indices had their strongest weekly gains since August 30, 2019.
