Wall Street closed this Friday in the green, this in a week marked by the festive season of Thanksgiving Day and the continuation of the high numbers of cases of Covid-19 in the USA, which verified a record of hospitalizations.
The Dow Jones closed to gain 37,9 points to 29.910,37, which corresponds to an appreciation of 0,13%. The S&P 500 appreciated 0,28%, closing at 3.639,88 points. The Nasdaq, on the other hand, achieved the highest gains in the three indices, rising 0,92% to 12.205,85.
The market's appetite for technology reflects the last months of the pandemic, in which these titles have been the main winners. On the other hand, procyclical bonds ended up being penalized by the continuous concern with the numbers of cases of infection by Covid-19, which remain high in the USA. This week, American hospitals registered more than 89 hospitalized with the disease.
Preliminary data from Black Friday and from the campaigns leading up to this day also show that, although retail continues to suffer from restrictions on activity and circulation, electronic commerce continues to reach historic values, which motivates investors to focus on securities in this sector.
