June 2 Market Close: GovCon Index Up as S&P 500, DJIA, and NASDAQ Reach New Highs Again

The Executive Mosaic GovCon Index closed up for the third day reaching a new two month high of 96.455 up 0.397 percent.

All the U.S. indices were up on the day. The S&P500, DJIA, and NASDAQ again reached new record highs of 2,439.07, 21,206.29, and 6,305.80 respectively. Even thought the May jobless numbers fell below expectations the market did not react.

WTI broke through the $48 mark to close down 1.20 percent to $47.78 as the OPEC production cuts appear not to have an affect on global oil balance. U.S. production continues to rise.
