Cboe's Weekly Market Recap: May 30th To June 3rd

Attention shifted from the markets to those who lost their lives in service to the U.S. on Memorial Day. 

As the nation commemorated its heroes on May 30, markets around the world seemed to fall into a collective snooze. Cboe Global Markets Inc. CBOE reports that the SPDR S&P 500 ETF SPY, Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 ETF QQQ and iShares Russell 2000 ETF IWM all recorded price movements between zero and 2%, while European market proxies like Europe’s MSCI European and the United kingdom’s iShares FTSE 100 did the same. 

Roger Rawlin’s Designer Brands Inc. DBI provided some excitement to a rather dull week, winning chart of the week following an impressive runup toward its earnings report. 

Finally, Cboe notes important upcoming earnings that may lift investors’ eyebrows in the following week.
