Stock Market Report 1/27/12

The week ends this rather mixed trend as of late for the stock market and it appears that the Dow Jones is going to end on a downward trend for the first time in the New Year, as this week concludes on Friday January 27th 2012.

Stock Market Report 1/27/12: Slow Growth

As many may have expected, economic growth after the slump may be rather slow. However, even low expectations might not be meant. Growth throughout the last quarter of 2011 has been slowed to a halt. That caused ramifications to erupt throughout the stock market, causing a slight dip.

So the growth is slow. The next week is going to be interesting, because of Facebook is releasing their IPO. Given that many might feel the bloom might be off the Facebook rose and its on the downward trend, it should be interesting to see what happens. If Facebook does have a decent IPO that might breath some life into the company, but it could also mean a death nell to them. It is a huge step forward.

In the end, another week in the stock market is in the books. January 2012 will be in the books after Tuesday and most certainly times will be interesting. Invest wisely, and don’t panic, that seems to be common advice. However, investor confidence is shaken, as the economy just limps along, trying to shake of the wounds of recent years.

Dow Jones: 12, 662.73(-71.90)
NASDAQ: 2,816.55(+11.27)
S and P 500: 1,316.34(-2.09)

Dow Jones and S and P 500 were right down low on today, while the NASDAQ was up. It is easy to say that the stunted economic growth caused this week to sputter to a nasty stop at the end. What will the week of the 30th of January 2012 bring? Hopefully some encouraging news, after the housing slump and the slow economy news of today.
