New Year, New Rally?


U.S. Markets
U.S. stocks made solid gains Tuesday, as all three primary U.S. benchmarks started 2017 with the same momentum seen toward the end of last year.

Despite a disappointing performance last week, U.S. indexes saw gains across most sectors Tuesday. The Dow Jones, S&P 500, and Nasdaq look to finish the first day of the new year in the green--cyclical stocks as well as shares in the financials and energy sectors were leading the early gains after the opening bell.
