STOCKS SURGE: Dow Jumps 250+, S&P 500 Smashes New Record, NASDAQ Hits All-Time High

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.01.19

The American stock market surged Friday after an October jobs report posted better-than-expected private payroll growth; sending the Dow Jones average up 250-points and the S&P 500 setting a new record.

“The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded 250 points higher, or 0.9%. The S&P 500 gained 0.8% to a fresh record high. The Nasdaq Composite also hit an all-time high, climbing 0.9%,” reports CNBC.

“The October jobs report was very strong,” said Gus Faucher, chief economist at PNC. “Job growth slowed a bit because of the GM strike, but with the strike over it should bounce back in November.”

“Stock Market up BIG! Record highs for S&P 500 and NASDAQ. Enjoy!” posted the President on social media.

 

October job creation topped analyst’s expectations this week; with the US economy adding more than 128,000 positions despite the ongoing worker strike at General Motors.

“Nonfarm payrolls rose by 128,000 in October as the U.S. economy overcame the weight of the GM autoworkers’ strike and created jobs at a pace well above expectations,” reports CNBC.

“Even with a decline of 42,000 in the motor vehicles and parts industry, the pace of new jobs well exceeded the estimate of 75,000 from economists surveyed by Dow Jones. The loss of jobs came due to the General Motors strike that has since been settled. That 42,000 job loss itself was less than the 50,000 or more that many economists had been anticipating,” adds the website.

“This report is yet another sign that the economy is still strong right now and adds to a list of indicators that are looking optimistic of late,” said Steve Rick, chief economist at CUNA Mutual Group. “The vigor of this labor market, along with a more positive housing market and solid Q3 GDP, should offer some welcome reassurance.”

The unemployment rate remains steady at 3.6%.

The US economy continued to smash records and surpass expectations in September, with new data showing the American unemployment rate at a half-century low and the Dow Jones Industrial Average reaching an all-time high.

According to CNBC, the Dow rose 219 points Thursday with the S&P 500 also breaking its previous record. The President hailed the news on social media, saying “S&P 500 HITS ALL-TIME HIGH Congratulations USA!”

“The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit its first record high since January on Thursday as gains in Apple and a decrease in trade fears lifted the 30-stock index… The Nasdaq Composite also rose 0.5 percent,” writes CNBC.

The stunning economic data may spell disaster for Democrats hoping to retake Congress this fall, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowing to repeal the ‘GOP Tax Scam’ should her party win big during the midterm elections.

BREAKING NOW: Stock Market APPROACHING ALL TIME HIGH, Could Break Record Any Moment

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.11.19

The United States stock market approached its al-time high Tuesday; with investors and industry insiders saying it could smash previous records at any moment.

“The next big test for the stock market will be whether the major indexes can break through all-time highs, just a short distance away,” reports CNBC. “Stocks have rallied on expectations that the Fed should be cutting interest rates in the near future, and that President Donald Trump would stand down from his threat to put tariffs on Mexico, as he did on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 are both up more about 5% in June. The Dow is up for six-straight days and futures pointed to another big gain Tuesday.”

“Good day in the Stock Market. People have no idea the tremendous potential our Country has for GROWTH – and many other things!” posted the President earlier Tuesday.

The stock market surge comes just days after President Trump announced a last-minute deal with Mexico on immigration; suspending a potential 5% tariff on all Mexican-produced goods.

“I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended,” said Trump last Friday. “Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to….stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!”
