Wall Street held mixed on Wednesday, Sept. 20, with gains in the energy sector counteracting losses in tech and investors mostly patient ahead of monetary policy decisions from the Federal Reserve. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.08% and the S&P 500 rose 0.05%. All benchmark indexes closed at records a day earlier -- the Dow for the sixth day in a row and the S&P 500 for its third. The Nasdaq fell 0.3%, though, as Apple Inc. (AAPL) weighed heavily on tech.
Increasingly bellicose talk from U.S. President Donald Trump and the wait for monetary policy decisions from the Federal Reserve failed to keep Wall Street from hitting new highs. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.18%, securing a new record close for its sixth session in a row. The S&P 500 added 0.11% and ended at an all-time high for the third day. The Nasdaq hit its own record for the first time since Sept. 13.
Wall Street appeared stuck between two cataclysmic weather events on Thursday, Sept. 7, as preparations for Hurricane Irma and the recovery from Hurricane Harvey kept investors nervous. Stocks gave back earlier gains to trade lower. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 0.18%, the S&P 500 dipped 0.17%, and the Nasdaq fell 0.16%. Irma, the latest weather risk, made landfall in the Caribbean earlier Wednesday and has the potential to reach Florida by the weekend.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
