The stock Market is heating up

Stocks have shown a notable turnaround over the course of the trading session on Tuesday after an initial move to the downside. With the rebound on the day, the Dow and the S&P 500 have climbed to new record intraday highs.

Currently, the major averages are just off their highs of the session. The Dow is up 45.62 points or 0.2 percent at 22,164.04, the NASDAQ is up 27.41 points or 0.4 percent at 6,411.18 and the S&P 500 is up 7.36 points or 0.3 percent at 2,488.27.

The initial weakness on Wall Street was partly due to profit taking after the Dow climbed to a new record closing high for the ninth consecutive session on Monday.

Selling pressure waned shortly after the open, however, and recent upward momentum helped to lift the major averages into positive territory.

The recovery by the major averages has partly been attributed to an advance by shares of tech giant Apple (AAPL). Apple is currently up by 1.7 percent after reaching a record high.

The rebound may also have been partly due to a report from the Labor Department showing an unexpected jump in job openings in the month of June.

The Labor Department said surged up to a record 6.2 million on the last business of June from 5.7 million on the last business day of May. Economists had expected job openings to drop to 5.6 million.

Nonetheless, traders seem reluctant to make more significant moves ahead of the release of reports on labor productivity and costs and producer and consumer price inflation in the coming days.

Remarks by Federal Reserve officials may also attract attention later this week, as traders look for clues about the outlook for monetary policy.

In a speech on Monday, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said the current level of interest rates is likely to remain appropriate over the near term amid subdued inflation.

    Perhaps its a true but right now a lot of investors is acumulating share and take it in logn term. Example: Facebook and Zalando. In long term they use temporary beat market to acumulate stocks in lower price.
