NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 7, 2018 / U.S. markets closed in the green on Monday, as Nasdaq surged for the fifth consecutive session, on a batch of strong corporate earnings, amidst ongoing trade-related concerns between U.S. and China. The Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 0.16 percent to close at 25,502.18, while the S&P 500 Index has gained 0.35 percent to close at 2,850.40. The Nasdaq Composite Index climbed 0.61 percent to close at 7,859.68.
