Daily September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average

Dow Jones Industrial Average

Stocks are ending broadly lower on Wall Street, led by declines in technology companies and banks, two of the highest-performing sectors over the past year. And when the S&P 500 breaks a streak of 50+ trading days without a 1%+ up move, the index actually averages a decline over the next month and a gain of just 0.86% over the next three months. The Dow slid 0.2 percent to 22,085.34.

Against the greenback, the Swiss franc eased about 0.1 percent to 0.9645 per dollar, having surged about 1.1 percent on Wednesday.

US stock index futures pointed to a slightly lower open on Wednesday, as investors focus on rising geopolitical tensions between the USA and North Korea, and get ready to pore over another slew of corporate earnings.

Both brothers plan to be off-island in the coming weeks. Only utilities sector stocks eked out a gain on a day of mostly listless trading as investors kept an eye on the latest company earnings and geopolitical news. Western Digital advanced 1.6% to $82.30. The stock was the biggest gainer in the S&P 500, adding 8.02 to 45.25 dollars.

On the earnings front, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing announced Wednesday that its second-quarter net profit climbed 12.5 percent to HK$1.8 billion ($230 million), higher than an average analyst forecast of HK$1.6 billion, Reuters said.

Biotechnology stocks are turning in some of the market's worst performances on the day, resulting in a 2.4% drop by the NYSE Arca Biotechnology Index. Also, the figures and forecasts of vehicle rental company Avis were disappointing and that share trimmed 10 percent. The trend appeared to overshadow strong quarterly revenue growth. On the Nasdaq, 2,082 issues fell and 669 advanced. Macerich slid 2.1% to $59.33.

BT Group, Anglo American and Lloyds Banking Group were all among the biggest fallers as their shares began trading without the right to the latest shareholder payout. Brent crude, the worldwide standard, lost 28 cents to $52.09 a barrel in London.

Currency traders consolidated positions in the Japanese yen and Swiss franc, and pushed up the dollar index by unwinding some of the recent bets on the euro. TripAdvisor shares shed $1.75, or 4.4 percent, to $37.80.

On the corporate front, shares of department store operator Macy's took a 10.25% hit after the firm reaffirmed its guidance for a drop of between 2.2% and 3.3% in its full-year like-for-like sales on an owned basis.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond fell to 2.2% and is approaching its lowest level of the year.

The pan-European STOXX 600 was down 0.7% at closing, France's CAC 40 fell 1.4% after a vehicle hit a group of soldiers in Paris in what is thought to have been a deliberate act, and a fall in bond yields saw Germany's DAX down 1.1%. But the market quickly bounced back, led by numerous tech stocks that were sinking on Thursday. Japan's Nikkei 225 slipped 0.3%, while Australia's S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.5%.
