Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) Traders Return to Wall Street
Investors celebrated the reopening of the new york stock exchange by sending stocks soaring Tuesday, as the nation continues to unwind from pandemic shutdowns and a lot of drug companies chase coronavirus cures.
The Dow Jones industrial average closed the day up 530 points, about 2.2 percent. The blue chips broke through the psychological threshold of 25,000 during an afternoon surge before giving back a number of those gains and closing at 24,995.11.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index jumped 36 points, about 1.2 percent, to finish at 2,991.77. The broad index cracked 3,000 for the first time since March throughout the session. The tech-heavy nasdaq added 15 points, or about 0.2 percent, to close at 9,340.22. All three indexes are coming off strong finishes last week.
“With additional signs of the worst of the virus being behind United States, investors are starting to focus on more countries reopening and the lifting of travel bans around the world,” Shayne Heffernan, CEO and Founder of Heffx said in an email. “More signs of reopening and more signs of travel bans being lifted creates more clarity for markets.”
Nine of 11 S&P stock sectors advanced, led by financials and industrials, which had been rejected sectors whose comeback is a sign that the slow recovery is broadening. Health and technology fell on profit-taking.
All but six of the 30 Dow blue chips were up on the day. Goldman Sachs led the pack at 9%. JPMorgan Chase advanced 7%. Raytheon Technologies and Dow chemical were considerable gainers.
Investors received an overflow of good news. The commerce department reported new-home sales climbed 0.6 % in April, an unexpected increase as economists had forecast a 22 % drop.
The Conference Board said its consumer confidence index improved to 86.6 this month from 85.7 in April. Economists had expected higher, however the numbers bolster sentiment after weeks of dour economic data.
