U.S. stocks resumed their upward momentum on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, as major indices mark yet another record high. The Dow Jones rallied 0.58%, the S&P 500 jumped 0.60%, and the Nasdaq increased 0.47%, during Tuesday’s trading. Overall strength in the U.S. dollar today proved to be a hurdle for metal commodities: gold prices dropped 0.18%, silver prices dove 0.35%, but crude oil managed a 1.12% rally.

Micro-cap stocks largely saw gains on Tuesday, as eight of the ten indices climbed during the day’s trading. However, the major story of the day was the OTCQB Venture Index’s 6.46% crash. A good portion of these losses can be thanked to the major sell off across Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac share classes.
