01Jul2016 Market Close: Wall Street Closed Higher, But Was Trending Down, Crude Inched Up After Adding 11 Rigs, Investors Convinced Brexit Effects Are Negligible

Written by Gary

US main indexes closed higher, but off session highs. More importantly, the Spooze closed above 2100 (2103) keeping alive the notion the, now four day old rally, will still be alive on next Tuesday morning. The U.S. oil rig count rose for the fourth time, adding 11 rigs, which includes a loss of one gas rig to 89. Crude futures inched up today and a majority of U.S. firms see only a negligible impact from Britain's Brexit vote.
