Jul 4, 2017-

US stocks were on track to begin the third quarter on a positive note in a truncated session on Monday, while investors awaited data for more clues on the health of the economy. Trading volume is expected to be light, with the US market closing early at 1 p.m. ET (1700 GMT). It will be shut on Tuesday for Independence Day. On Friday, the S&P 500 scored its biggest gain for the first half of the year since 2013, while the Nasdaq Composite’s first-half gain was its best in eight years. “The start to the third quarter is getting off on a promising note as the futures point to a higher opening,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at First Standard Financial.
