Stock Market Today: Dow, S&P Live Updates for Jun. 11, 2021

U.S. equities eked out a gain in choppy trading as investors continued to assess the outlook for inflation and the path of Federal Reserve monetary policy. Ten-year Treasury yields held at around the lowest since March.

Friday’s advance of 0.2% came a day after the S&P 500 notched its first all-time high since early May as data showed U.S. consumer price increases in May were largely driven by categories associated with economic reopenings, bolstering the view that inflation pressures may ease later in the year.

Nick Colas on June S&P 500 projections

It was a bumpy May for stocks.

The S&P 500 eked out a gain of nearly 1% for the month, though sell-offs in high tech and growth names made for a volatile stretch.

At a time when many Americans seem obsessed with shutting out messages and viewpoints they don’t support and believe in, I found it refreshing last week to chat with a guy who most optimists and long-term investors either disbelieve or hate.

Harry S. Dent Jr. has been a soothsayer of sadness and gloom for ages now, and has spent a lot of time on the wrong side of the record bull market recovery since the financial crisis of 2008.
