U.S Stocks Gain! The Sentiment Turns into Positive!

U.S stocks gain for the second positive week in a row.

U.S stocks gain for the second positive week in a row. A weekly rise of between 1 % 2.38 % was recorded by the benchmark indexes. The Nasdaq-100 technology index outpaced the market. Employment growth, profit announcements, and the increasingly likely prospect of increased interest rates in the near future all had an impact on the markets.

In January, the 467K new jobs produced by the US economy exceeded economists’ expectations by a wide margin. Due to the uptick in employment data, the benchmark 10-year US Treasury note yield increased to 1.93 %. The performance of corporate earnings continues to improve, with profits for S&P 500 companies expected to climb by more than 29 % in the fourth quarter of this year.

The European equities were brought to a close with a mixed direction movement on a weekly basis. The FTSE-100 and the FTSE MIB indexes ended the week with small gains on a weekly basis. The CAC-40 and Dax-30 indices, on the other hand, saw their value fall. The German benchmark Dax-30 underperformed, falling by more than one %. When European Central Bank (ECB) President Christine Lagarde made comments that appeared to leave the door open for a rate hike this year, the market responded unfavourably, according to Bloomberg.

The majority of APAC benchmark indices gained more than 2 % on a weekly basis. The HSI-50 index in Hong Kong outperformed the market. It was reported by Japanese broadcaster TBS that the government could publish a policy on whether to remove the ban on the entry of non-resident foreigners into Japan as early as next week, which prompted several stocks that would profit from an economic openness to rise in response.
