Dow Falls in MIxed Market

By
Mortgage and Lending with The Federal Savings Bank/Lending in 50 states NMLS # 109616

Stocks failed to set a five year high today as the S & P 500 and the Dow had slight losses while the NASDAQ advanced slightly.  Durable goods orders had a surprisingly good month in December having advanced 4.6 % rather than the 1.6% increase that was expected.  Durable goods are large ticket items that suggest increased construction and manufacturing in coming months.  Pending home sales dropped 4% versus the expected flat performance.  After skittering along close to even all day, the Dow closed down 14 points.
