Stock Market Outlook for Thursday Aug 17 2017 – Sideways Bias Lower

Wednesday Aug 16 2017 saw stocks trading positively until shortly after 2:00 PM when the Fed minutes were released.

That combined with news of President’s Trump’s ending of his Manufacturing Council as more and more corporations backed out was enough to end the rally. Stock indexes still managed small…
