The swift rise in the U.S. stock market proved to be unsustainable, and a correction was needed. (Richard Drew/AP)The Dow Jones industrial average's meteoric rise was completely unsustainable and pretty much every analyst knew it. It was amazing when the Dow took only 23 days in January to move from 24,000 to 25,000 for the first time – and then it was only a week later when the Dow soared last month to 26,000.
If you talk to your customers for any length of time, the topic of cryptocurrency invariably comes up. You even know how this scene goes because it probably played out more than once in your office, or that of a colleague, just last week. Your client perches in a chair, idly fingering your latest brochures that promote offerings of mutual funds, bonds and your institution’s mortgage rates.
Since the 20,000 milestone was breached on Jan. 25, the Dow set record after record with sometimes amazing frequency, powering past four 1,000-point milestones for the first time in history. The Dow set 63 record highs so far in 2017, and hitting 25,000 by the end of the year is no longer out of the question. Many financial advisors, academics and economists say that the market, despite its record-setting ways, is nowhere close to being a frothy bubble.
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".
