Wall Street closed this Friday with gains and said goodbye to its best week since November, with record highs for the second consecutive day in two of its main indicators, the selective S&P 500 and the Nasdaq index.

At the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange, the S&P 500 rose 0,39 points, or 15,09%, to 3.886,83; while the Nasdaq, which brings together the most important technology companies, increased by 0,57% or 78,55 points, to 13.856,30 units.

The Dow Jones Industrials, for its part, rose 0,30% or 92,38 points and stood at 31.148,24 integers, just 40 units from its last record, achieved at the end of January.

The New York stock market rebounded from the losses of the previous week, caused by the volatility of small investors around the GameStop phenomenon, and was supported by the batch of quarterly results, economic data and the stimulus plan.

For the week as a whole, the Nasdaq gained a solid 6%, the S&P 500 4,7% and the Dow Jones 3,9%.

And that the day began reacting to a disappointing employment report, with only 49.000 jobs created in the US in January and the unemployment rate at 6,3%, in addition to a downward revision of the figures for December, when they destroyed 227.000 jobs.

“Although there is still a lot of ground to recover, we hope that the labor market will soon get back on track. Vaccines increase and additional fiscal relief should support employment, ”said Wells Fargo analysts, who like many others advocate more stimulus to solve the situation. External source
