Increases in stock market indices in the US

created Natalia Bojko13 February 2019

The recent meeting on the financing of border security in the USA had a hot topic that had a significant impact on investors' behavior. The meeting of Democrats and Republicans brought about a preliminary agreement.

Optimism in the markets

In addition to eliminating the threat from the abandonment or temporary suspension of operations and government work in the US, optimistic moods have affected the futures market. The preliminary agreement must go through the legislative process in the form of approval and vote by Congress. Nevertheless, the stabilization of the situation in the United States has found a positive rebound in the market. Of course, good moods support the season for the publication of financial reports of listed companies, which is now fully in the US.

The largest increases could be observed, inter alia, in the main US indices. This progress was mainly visible on the Nasdaq 100, which recorded 0,81% up on yesterday's session. Right behind him was the Dow Jones with a score of 0,78%. The lowest% result was achieved by the S&P 500, which recorded a 0,68% increase, which translates into 18 points.

Interestingly, 0,35% improvement was also recorded on gold futures. The increase in interest in contracts on the US market, maintained in the long term, may indicate improved moods among investors (not only from the US).
