April 6 Market Close: GovCon Index and Markets Reverse Downward Trend, Closing Up

The Executive Mosaic GovCon Index reversed its six day downward trend to close up 0.436 percent to 90.300. There was positive movement in GovCon stocks as advancers outpaced decliners by 6 to 1.

The major indices all closed slightly higher as energy stocks rose with crude oil prices and retailers are up on strong sales reports. Investors await the jobs report do out on Friday.

WTI reversed its opening negative position to close positive on the day at $51.73 up $0.58 per barrel. Disruptions with North Sea production and Canada’s second largest sands producers have helped prop-up oil prices.
