All three indexes stared the day in the positive territory, but immediately witnessed a negative reaction. It was light in Dow Jones side, while noticeable in S&P 500 and NASDAQ sides. But, the indexes shrugged off the reaction and started to rally higher. They hit the intraday high by noon, and spent rest of the day in a constructive consolidation mode. Dow Jones added +0.38% and outperformed for the day. NASDAQ and S&P 500 also gained and matching the gains posted by the blue-chip index.

Trading volume went down in both NYSE and NASDAQ exchanges considerably and came in lower than yesterday’s level.
