NASDAQ Weekly Market Pulse

Semiconductor and Housing Stocks Lead Broad U.S. Stock Market Gains; Europe Trades Higher as Well

ADVISORY, Sept. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- "After a selloff that began in mid-August, the market seems to have found its footing in September," said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director, NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes. "The lack of a U.S. strike on Syria, some comfort with Fed tapering and recent Chinese export data have all contributed to recent market strength. In addition, crude oil continues to rise on supply data and the situation in the Middle East."
