US indices finished flat Thursday with the trading session sandwiched between the Bank of England interest rate decision and the anticipation of the US payroll data on Friday. At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished slightly lower, falling by -0.04% while the S&P 500 crept up a point to finish mostly unchanged. However, the calm before the storm is a very common theme for Wall Street as recent history has shown, with American financial markets appearing eerily calm before the volatile movement following the immediate moments after the unemployment results are delivered.
