Yahoo Finance senior markets reporter Jared Blikre reviews the market action ahead of Thursday's close, examining trends across sectors and Nasdaq leaders.
SEANA SMITH: Just over a minute from the closing bell. Jared Blikre here at the big board to break down some of today's moves. Hey, Jared.
JARED BLIKRE: Hey there. So we got the NASDAQ just barely in the green. S&P 500 just a little bit in the red. Dow down about half a percentage point. Guess what? The NASDAQ, if it does close in the green here-- kind of going to be a nail-biter-- it would be the best highest close since September. So about two months there. XLC, that's communication services. That is in the forefront. But only up about 6/10 of a percent, just a shadow of what it put in yesterday. Health care, tech, materials, industrials, consumer discretionary, all of those on the top line there.
Let's take a look inside the NASDAQ so we can see it. Let's put this on a two-day view. That really takes into consideration those big moves that we had from yesterday. Only down strikes we have are Crowdstrike. That's down about 10%. Costco down about 5%. Those are earnings stories right there. And let's take a look at a two-day view of the Dow as well, where we see only JPMorgan and 3M slightly in the red. Tech and the mega caps have had a decent two-day run here, as we were talking about. Even some of those meme stocks got a little love today.
