Highlights
August 7, 2017
Markets were little changed Monday but the Dow just can't be held back, posting a 9th straight record close at 22,118 for a fractional 0.1 percent gain that counts all the same. Economic news is headlined by the discontinuation of the Fed's labor market conditions index, which was an experimental mix of 19 components that never did much of a job predicting wage pressures. Other news comes from another sizable increase in revolving credit that may suggest lenders are easing their standards.
