    S&P 500 logs 31st closing record of 2017 as stock market bounces in 'relief rally'

    U.S. stocks on Monday kicked off the first full week of trading in September with a bang, underlined by the S&P 500 ending at a record, as a raft of meteorological and geopolitical jitters gave way to a re-emergence of appetite for assets perceived as risky. The S&P 500 index closed up 1.1% at 2,488, marking its first record close since Aug. 7, buoyed by gains in the technology and financials sectors. Financials, as gauged by the PowerShares KBW Bank Portfolio and the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF booked their best daily rises since June 9, according to FactSet data. Bank stocks benefited from a resurgence in benchmark Treasury yields, with the 10-year Treasury note rising to 2.13%, compared with 2.05% late Friday. Higher yields support a banks's business models. The Dow Jones Industrial Average , meanwhile, jumped about 260 points, retaking is perch above 22,000, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed up 1.1%. The technology sector has often been viewed as a gauge of Wall Street's tolerance for risk, seeing heavy bidding when investors feel bullish on the market. Monday's bounce was attributed to Hurricane Irma hitting Florida with less force than feared and North Korea refraining from conducting another missile test in the Korean Peninsula, factors that last week had helped push stocks and bonds mostly lower. The relatively milder impact of Hurricane Irma helped insurers, bracing for bigger liabilities from the storm, rally, highlighted by a 3.1% advance in the PowerShares KBW Property & Casualty Insurance Portfolio , a popular exchange-traded fund used to invest in the in the sector. Art Cashin, UBS's director of floor operations, on CNBC described Monday trading as a two-pronged "sigh of relief rally." In corporate news, shares of Apple Inc. bounced 1.8% ahead of what is expected to be the debut of a fresh lineup of iPhones and other products from the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant.

    Popular financial ETF ends below 200-day moving average for first time in 14 months

    A popular way to wager on the financial sector Thursday closed below a long-term trend line intraday for the first time in about 14 months. The Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF tumbled 1.7% to 23.88 on Thursday, closing below its 200-day moving average at 23.98 for the first time since early July, according to FactSet data. Market technicians tend to see short-term and long-term moving averages as dividing lines between bullish and bearish trends. Slipping below an trading averages is viewed as a bearish sign. The financial sector has been under recent pressure as Wall Street's expectations for another interest-rate increase in 2017 has diminished and as benchmark yields have fallen to their lowest level in 2017. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note declined to around 2.05% Thursday after a European Central Bank news conference.
