June 1 Market Close: GovCon Index Up as S&P 500, DJIA, and NASDAQ Set New Highs

On the first day of June trading the GovCon Index and U.S. indices all opened the month on a strong note.

The Executive Mosaic GovCon Index ended the day up 0.940 percent to 96.082 setting a new two month high.

All the U.S. indices were up on the day. The S&P500, DJIA, and NASDAQ all reached a new record high of 2,430.06, 21,144.18, and 6,246.83 respectively. The markets reacted to strong private hiring data on the eve of the jobs report. There appeared to be little response to the announcement from the U.S. on withdrawal from the Paris climate pact.

At market close WTI was down 0.46 percent to $48.10 per barrel as the U.S. production continues to rise.
