U.S. STOCK INDEXES
GENERAL STOCK MARKET COMMENT: The U.S. stock indexes closed firmer today and hit record highs again. Bulls remain in firm technical command. Reports Monday said Iraqi troops have taken control of key oil installations that were controlled by the Kurds. This news somewhat supported the crude oil market but did not have a significant impact on markets. Nymex crude prices are trading around $52.00 a barrel on Monday. The other key “outside market” on Monday saw the U.S. dollar index slightly higher in a quiet session. China this week starts its twice-a-decade Party Congress meetings, in which major economic and cultural planning initiatives are laid out for the next five years. Traders and investors will keep a close watch for any pronouncements coming out of those meetings.
