News Headline Summary

US EQUITY WRAP

Equities finished the session in positive territory, following a relatively light session overall in regards to volumes and market-moving newsflow. Much of the move higher in the stock market was following the decent German ZEW data during the European morning. Elsewhere, there has been growing expectation that the Fed is to announce some form of easing at the rate setting meeting. In terms of the sector break down, the technology sector (+1.47%) was by far the best performer, led higher by AAPL (+2.50%). Finally, the DJIA finished up 0.11% at 13169.96, the S&P 500 finished up 0.66% at 1427.88 and the NASDAQ 100 finished up 1.30% at 2682.07.
