Thought for the day, plus some posts on the Stock Market, Finance, Politics, and Life!
According to Morningstar, here are the index results at the end of the 1st Quarter: S&P -0.76, DOW -1.96, and NASDAQ +2.33.
My investment portfolio was down -1.77% YTD. It is also down 6.83% from its high.
See chart below for the individual results of my holdings YTD.
The S&P spent the week chopping sideways and ended a little bit lower than how it closed on Monday (see chart below). So far the 200 SMA (brown line) is holding as support, so we'll see what happens next week.
