NEW YORK. – Wall Street closed this Friday with slight gains, enough to achieve record highs in its three main indicators. This, despite another day of little movement that hovered close to the flat line.
At the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange, the Dow Jones rose a timid 0,09%, or 27,70 points, to 31.458,40 integers.
Meanwhile, the selective S&P 500 advanced 0,47% or 18,45 points, to 3.934,83 integers. The Nasdaq Composite Index, which brings together the largest technology companies in the market, rose a little more, 0,50% or 69,70 points, to 14.095,47.
The New York parquet has put a stop to the good run that began this month, which analysts attribute to expectations of more stimulus. But it stagnated at record levels, so the slightest advance allows figures never seen before to be scored.
Thus, for the week as a whole, the indicators have recorded moderate increases, around 1% in the case of the Dow Jones; 1,23% on the S&P 500 and 1,73% on the Nasdaq.
The good season of quarterly results, in which most companies exceeded estimates, and the implementation of vaccines against covid-19, contribute to an optimistic view of the economic recovery in the market.
