- All right, we're just a couple of minutes away from the closing bell. Let's bring in Yahoo Finance's Jared Blikre to break down the market action on this Tuesday. Hello, sir.

JARED BLIKRE: All right, we've got a mixed board here. NASDAQ slightly underwater. Dow is up nearly 75 basis points. That's 3/4 of a point. I just want to show quickly our S&P 500 year to date chart.

Guess what? We hit the halfway back. And this is also the 200-day moving average. Some important technical levels as we head into options expiration Friday.


Just want to show you what's happening in the bond market real quickly. Up three basis points, not making any waves. So let's check out some of the heat maps. And we've got a lot to show you.

It's really been all about retail today. XLY is consumer discretionary. XLP is consumer staples. Both of those up over 1%. You want to know why? We got Walmart. That is a consumer staple. That's up 5% here. And Home Depot, consumer discretionary, that is up 4%.

So let's scroll through some of our other maps here. Here's a bank. Here are big banks. And some of these are showing some signs of life. Bank of America up 1%. Goldman Sachs, by the way, has been on a tear, up about 30% off of the lows from the year to date port.

But we do want to get to some other charts here. So first, let's go to our retail sector. And we're going to see Home Depot and Walmart. But also, we got Lowe's. And we got TJ, TJT. That is Tomorrow Morning. That's up 4 and 1/2 points.

And let's take a look at the luxury sector too because we're seeing some signs of life there. We got Tapestry, Real Real. And in apparel, guess what? Nike is up 1 and 1/2% as we head into the closing bell on this Tuesday. And there it is.
