March 24 Market Close: GovCon Index Down as Markets Mix on Canceled Healthcare Vote

Executive Mosaic’s GovCon Index closed to a monthly low of 91.512.

The major U.S. markets close mixed with the S&P 500 and DJIA down slightly for the second straight day and the NASDAQ up. It appears that the GOP scraped the healthcare bill all together. The Trump administration could not reach agreement with fellow Republicans on the various elements of the bill.

GovCon Index decliners out-placed advancers 7 to 1 on the day.

At market close WTI was up slightly to $48.08 per barrel as U.S. output and inventories continue to expand.
