Is Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX: .DJI) going down after Thanksgiving?


The US stock exchanges paid some tribute to their price rally since the beginning of November on Wednesday, before Thanksgiving holiday. The leading index Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) Index lost 0.48 percent to 35,804.38  points in the end. But let us remember that a year ago, a few days before Thanksgiving DJIA broke the 30,000 point mark for the first time. So, this favorite index gained 5000+ points in just one year.

The market-wide S&P 500 (INDEXSP: .INX) , which was only a few points short of a record on Tuesday,  gained 0.23 percent to 4,701.46 points. Furthermore, the technology-heavy Nasdaq (INDEXNASDAQ: .IXIC), which gained more than 600 points in a month, made it to 15,845.23  an increase of 4.06 percent.

But on Thanksgiving (Thursday), it is likely that we will see reluctance among investors – and on Friday it will close its doors earlier than usual (at 1 p.m.). That is why many stockbrokers use the public holiday for a long weekend. Investors mostly keep a low profile beforehand.

The expectation of strong sales losses for the fashion chain Gaplet the shares collapse by a good 24 percent.
