Despite downward pressure from the Energy Sector, U.S. markets rose Wednesday as investors eagerly await a trio of events, Britain’s general election, the European Central Bank’s policy meeting and testimony from former FBI Director James Comey’s in front of a Senate panel, on Thursday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.18 percent to close at 21,173.69, up 7.14 percent year-to-date, while the S&P 500 Index gained 0.16 percent to close at 2,433.14, up 8.68 percent year-to-date.
“What we have tomorrow and next week is what is driving everything right now,” said Mark Kepner, managing director of sales and trading at Themis Trading. “Combine that with the Fed meeting next week and that’s a lot of uncertainty for the market.”
