March 29 Market Close: GovCon Index Up, Markets Close Mixed as U.K. Triggers Article 50

Executive Mosaic’s GovCon Index reverses three day downtrend to close up at 91.877, +0.068 percent.

U.S. markets showed minimal reaction as the United Kingdom enacted Article 50, officially notifying the EU of their intent to exit. Indices closed mixed with the S&P500 and NASDAQ closing up on the day and the DJIA down.

GovCon Index advancers and decliners were closed fairly even for the day.

At market close WTI was at $49.50 up 1.13 per barrel as reported crude oil stockpiles rose less than anticipated, easing concerns about oversupply.
