The U.S. dollar dropped in Asian trading on Friday, with the fall extending in European hours. Analysts blamed the slide on jitters over a report that special counsel Robert Muller’s probe into Russian election interference has made its first official order for information to President Donald Trump’s campaign. That drop for the greenback reversed some of the gains the currency logged Thursday after the House voted in favor of the Republican-led U.S. tax overhaul. What markets are doing?
These days, as investors put lots of emphasis on taxes and how exactly a bill will get pounded out in Washington before Christmas, some may be forgetting another test could be in store for this stock market. The Federal Reserve meets in December, at which point many expect the central bank will get its Grinch on and announce the first interest-rate hike in a year. Some worry investors aren’t worried enough.
Investors are forgiven for waking up a bit wary today, given yesterday’s brutal session on Wall Street, but it seems optimism is in the air as a tax vote looms. “After such a long run without any moves lower, equity markets were probably due a breather, and this looks more like a technical correction before another assault higher, rather than the start of a more significant selloff,” says ETX Capital’s Neil Wilson, who advises not to worry too much. “Buying the dip still rules,” he says.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
