A directionless day – 04/06/10

0

Stock prices got a little boost from the minutes of the last Fed meeting, with indications that low interest rates will stay around for a while, but the enthusiasm faded and stocks ended the session nearly flat. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped four points to 10,970, but the Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 were each up a tiny bit. Broadcasting stocks were also mixed.


The RBR Radio Index was up 0.829, or 0.3%, to 265.013.

The TVBR Television Index was down 4.208, or 2.4%, to 169.841.
