07 Apr 2023

As of April 7th, 2023, the S&P 500 index closed at a new record high of 4,598.16, up 0.17% from the previous day’s close.

The technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite index also closed at a new all-time high on April 7th, finishing the day at 16,085.89, up 0.23% from the previous day.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which is made up of 30 large US companies, rose 0.11% to close at 35,678.15 on April 7th.

The US equity market has been buoyed by strong corporate earnings and a supportive monetary policy from the Federal Reserve. However, concerns about inflation and rising interest rates have also weighed on investor sentiment.

The healthcare sector has been a standout performer in the US equity market recently, with companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and Moderna benefiting from the global COVID-19 vaccination effort.

The energy sector has also been strong, as oil prices have risen due to increased demand and supply constraints.

On the other hand, the financial sector has lagged behind the broader market in recent weeks, as low-interest rates and a flattening yield curve have hurt banks’ profitability.

Overall, the US equity market remains near record highs and continues to be supported by a range of factors, including strong corporate earnings, a supportive Federal Reserve, and a generally positive economic outlook.
