The Nasdaq-100 fell 3.1 percent between Friday, August 28, and Friday, September 4. The SPDR Technology ETF (XLK) declined 4.1 percent. Both were the biggest weekly drops since the coronavirus selloff reached a climax in mid-March.
The Invesco Solar Energy ETF (TAN) rose 2.35 percent on Tuesday, bucking a drop of 1.65 percent for the broader S&P 500. TAN’s gain of almost 4.2 percent in the last week makes it the best-performing industry fund over that period.
The S&P 500 rose 1.2 percent between Friday, April 19, and Friday, April 26. The index also closed at a new all-time high of 2940, with technology and the Nasdaq-100 still leading the charge.
Government shutdown? Nope. Trade war with China? Probably not if talks continue. Recession? Just when it looked like things were slowing down, the data turned positive. The pessimists just couldn’t win.
The S&P 500 rose less than 0.1 percent between Friday, February 1, and Friday, February 8. It was only the sixth and smallest advance in the last seven weeks, following the index’s sharp rebound in January. The index also had its narrowest weekly trading range (just 57 points) since late September.
After all, we’re in the fourth quarter – a time of the year with a strong bias to the upside. Consider some of these points we crunched from TradeStation’s wealth of chart data:
Dropbox Inc. is a San Francisco-based cloud storage company which listed on the NASDAQ on the 23rd of March 2018, a Friday ending the S&P 500’s worst week in more than two years amid talks of a global trade war and interest rate rises. Despite this, Dropbox saw gains of 35% on its first day with a valuation of over $US11bn.
