Wall Street Has A Weak Start, But Holds At A One-month High


According to Reuters, Wall Street’s main indexes fought back from a weak start to hover near one-month highs on Thursday, as gains in healthcare and consumer discretionary stocks offset losses in the energy and financial sectors. U.S. stock futures were under pressure for most of the session and the market even opened lower due to disappointing earnings from Morgan Stanley and renewed concerns over the progress of Sino-U.S. trade talks. Morgan Stanley (MS.N) tumbled 6.3 percent after reporting a lower-than-expected quarterly profit as spikes in volatility in the end of the fourth quarter hurt trading.
