March 23 Market Close: GovCon Index and Markets Close Down on Delayed Healthcare Vote

Executive Mosaic’s GovCon Index moved down in lock step with the major U.S. markets.

The major U.S. markets reversed their earlier gains to close down late in the day as the GOP delayed the vote on their healthcare bill. The Trump administration are still attempting to reach agreement with conservative Republicans on certain aspects of the newly proposed bill. Republicans announced that the vote may take place as early as Friday

GovCon Index advancers and decliners were pretty well split on the day.

At market close WTI was down to $47.69 per barrel off 0.73 percent as U.S. crude oil inventory is up.
