June 17 Market Close: GovCon Index Falls to Snap 4-Week Gain Streak

GovConIndexDOWNThe GovCon Index fell for a third consecutive session Friday by 0.435 points to 78.356 in a close that snaps the GCI’s four-week gain streak as market activity was shaped by continued reaction to the latest Federal Reserve interest rate outlook and uncertainty over the Brexit referendum.

The GCI recorded a weekly decline of 1.97 percent compared to the S&P 500’s respective fall of 1.18 percent in the final full-trading week ahead of the Britain’s Thursday referendum on whether to leave the European Union.

The Fed cited the Brexit vote as a potential source of volatility to the U.S. economy in the central bank’s mid-week statement to leave interest rates unchanged.
