U.S. Stock Market Mixed As Tech Giants Rise, Dow's 7-Day Streak Ends

On Wednesday, the U.S. stock market closed with mixed results, primarily driven by the rise in large tech stocks.

The market’s attention remained focused on corporate earnings and speeches by Federal Reserve Chairman Powell and other officials.
