European Central Bank President Mario Draghi seemed to achieve an almost impossible feat on Thursday: He dropped a pledge to buy more financial assets if the economy deteriorates and he didn't upset markets. In fact, his comments sent stocks and bonds higher and brought about a welcome decline in the euro. The STOXX Europe 600 Index surged 1.05 percent, capping the biggest four-day rally since April 2017.
Those concerned that the nasty selloff in equities a month ago and the return of volatility are a bad omen for markets might want to take a close look at a landmark debt deal on Tuesday. That's when CVS Health Corp. launched the third-largest corporate bond sale on record, offering $40 billion of securities to fund its acquisition of Aetna Inc. In a sign of strength, the investment-grade bond market barely budged despite all the new supply.
Cooler heads will prevail. That’s the message markets sent on Monday after investors spent much of the weekend pondering whether President Donald Trump really wants to incite a trade war by slapping tariffs on steel and aluminum. Ray Dalio, who runs the world’s largest hedge fund at Bridgewater Associates, captured the sentiment best when he wrote on his LinkedIn page Monday, “I believe that what is happening now is more for political show than for real threatening."
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".
