April 18 Market Close: GovCon Index and Major Markets Drop as Goldman Earnings Down

The Executive Mosaic GovCon Index retreated to close down 0.407 percent to 90.431 giving back one-half of yesterday’s gains. Advancing and declining stocks were pretty well split on the day.

U.S. markets all closed down with a disappointing earning report from Goldman Sachs. Leading the decline were healthcare companies, energy producers, and financial firms.

At market close WTI was also down $0.29 to $ 52.36 per barrel as traders await the U.S. Energy Information Administration report due out on Wednesday.
