The stock market ended on Friday with mixed signs for the main indices. In New York, the broad S&P 500 index rose above 5,000 points for the first time and gained 0.6 percent for the week, setting record highs for the 10th time this year. Meanwhile, the technology-focused Nasdaq also rose 1.3 percent, while the Dow Jones industrial average ended 0.1 percent below freezing.
The positive performance of the stock market in recent weeks can be attributed to several factors, including the US central bank’s reluctance to raise interest rates and slowing inflation. However, stocks have been on a steady rise since late October, and it remains to be seen whether this trend will continue in the coming months.
Despite some concerns about potential inflationary pressures and global economic uncertainty, many analysts remain optimistic about the future of the stock market. They believe that as long as interest rates remain low and economic growth continues to improve, stocks will continue to perform well in the near term.
