The Fed’s Beige Book, the summary of the country’s economic condition, indicated that there had been “modest to moderate” growth in the past month, that residential housing was “largely positive,” and that employment grew at a “tepid pace.”
At Wednesday’s close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 103 points at 12,909, the S&P 500 rose 9 points to 1,373, and the Nasdaq gained 33 points to close at 2,943. The NYSE traded 726 million shares and the Nasdaq traded 463 million. Advancers led decliners by over 1.5-to-1 on both exchanges.
