Stock Indices Recap - 10/5/2016

October 5, 2016 10:48AM CDT

December S&P finished up 2.3 at 2147, 11 off the high and 5.5 up from the low.
December S&P E-Mini closed up 8.75 at 2153.5. This was 12.5 up from the low and 4.5 off the high.

The stock market saw noted support today from strength in the tech sector and also from merger and buyout activity. We also suspect that oil patch stocks provided the broad market with support today but the big influence might have come from better than expected US economic information especially since the Fed is largely perceived to be on hold until December.
