17:12 EDTBAC, HTZ, BRK.A, MET, HPQOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
The broader market opened slightly lower as investors moved to the sidelines awaiting the release of the minutes from last monthís FOMC meeting. There was little else for investors to key in on as the geopolitical situations were fairly quiet and the economic calendar was devoid of any major releases. As a result the averages drifted throughout the morning but by lunch time had crossed into positive ground. From there the Dow would take the lead while the Nasdaq lagged. The knee jerk reaction to the Fedís minutes, which showed a more heated debate about when to raised interest rates, pushed the market lower. After digesting the notes the market turned and closed with its fifth positive finish in the past six sessions. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The Mortgage Bankers' Association Purchase Applications showed a week-over-week drop of -0.4% in the purchase index, but a 3% rise in the refinance index... The EIA Petroleum Status Report showed a 4.5M draw in oil inventories to 362.5M barrels during last week... In the Fed minutes released at 2:00 pm ET, "many" FOMC members said that stimulus may have to be removed sooner than expected.
