Stock Indices Recap - 10/17/2016

October 17, 2016 10:39AM CDT

December S&P finished down 3.6 at 2123.3, 6.1 off the high and 6.1 up from the low. December S&P E-Mini closed down 4 at 2123. This was 6.25 up from the low and 7 off the high.

Global markets were unable to overcome sluggish risk appetites at the start of this week's trading which in turn put pressure on stock indices on both sides of the Atlantic. As a result, US equity markets remained on a bumpy ride through the weekend but were on-track for their fourth negative close in the last 5 sessions although the tech-heavy NASDAQ held up relatively well. Better than expected earnings from Bank of America provided some measure of support.
