Liftoff For Lyft


The market was modestly higher early on, led by the Nasdaq, which gained about 0.5%, as folks appeared to be infatuated with the combination of the end of the quarter and the anticipated launch of Lyft. After being priced at $72 a share, it opened at $87, and from there it traded down to about $80.

In the afternoon, the indices pushed a little higher as of about 30 minutes to go, when I had to leave.

Away from stocks, green paper was mixed, fixed income was lower, and the metals bounced back with silver gaining 0.75% to gold's couple of dollars, while the miners were mixed.

Positions in stocks mentioned: none.
