Monday was an interesting start to the week with U.S. broad markets closing higher after starting the day out negative. Crude oil helped with this boost and oil & gas as well as industrial stocks saw a handy gain across the board. Overall this push higher was led by the tech sector, which is reflected in the Nasdaq’s performance today. Apart from this, financial and health care stocks were largely mixed. Retailers saw the worst of it, but Amazon was there to make nearly a 2% gain in their place.
