June 21 Market Close: GovCon Index Closes Down While Major Indices Close Mixed

The Executive Mosaic GovCon Index closed down today 0.477 percent to 95.33. Advancing and declining shares were pretty much evenly split.

The major indices closed mixed on the day with the S&P500 and DJIA down and the NASDAQ up. The continued drop in oil prices pulled energy and industrial stocks down, as technology stocks moved up.

WTI crude oil closed down sharply again for the second consecutive day to $42.50 per barrel off 2.32 percent. The market demonstrated their concerns with the political stability in the middle east with the appointment of Mohammed bin Salman’s as crown prince Saudi Arabia. As Bloomberg quoted in their article “that brings back the political risk premium” to crude prices.
