Valuation Concerns Could Keep Temper Momentum
March 03, 2015
(RTTNews) - The major U.S. index futures are pointing to lower opening on Tuesday, with sentiment reflecting nervousness of traders about the overbought levels. On Monday, the Dow Industrials and the S&P 500 Index hit fresh closing highs, while the Nasdaq Composite scaled a 15-year peak. With the monetary policy outlook ever so uncertain, traders may seek more convincing catalysts for the upward momentum to be sustained. Across the Atlantic, the mood turned negative after a positive start. The mood in the domestic markets may largely depend on the monthly sales results of the U.S. automakers and some earnings reported ahead of the market open. U.S. stocks advanced in the first trading session of March on Monday, with the Dow Industrials and the S&P 500 Index hitting fresh closing highs, while the Nasdaq Composite moved back above the 5,000 level. The gains came despite domestic economic data disappointing to the downside, although there were positive triggers in the form of a surprise rate cut by the People's Bank of China and M&A news. The major averages opened higher and rose steadily in early trading. After moving roughly sideways till late afternoon trading, the averages advanced yet again before closing notably higher.
