Market Reflections 9/29/2009
Consumer confidence edged back in September as consumers expressed deepening pessimism over the jobs market and their income outlook. But the markets, awaiting Friday's jobs report, held steady in quiet trading. The S&P fell 0.2 percent to end at 1,060. The dollar index firmed 0.2 percent to end at 77.07 while commodities were little changed with oil ending at $66.50 and gold at $990.
