Latest updates: Dow rises more than 300 points, S&P 500 up by 1.54% | Bitcoin crosses $9,800 mark

US benchmark index Dow Jones and the broader S&P 500 are shining today. Bitcoin seems to be the slow-yet-steady gainer this month. The last five trading sessions ended in the green for BTCUSD.

Wall Street seems to be in a recovery mode from yesterday’s losses. The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index is already up by 333 points. S&P 500 looks quite steady and aggressive at 2969.6.

Yesterday the Dow crashed more than 300 points by the end of the trading session. Things are looking great and optimistic from the investor’s point of view.

Technical indicators point to a ‘buy’ signal

Dow Futures soared on hopes of an economic revival with yet another intervention from the Federal Reserve. The technical indicators for the immediate short term, as well as medium-term, turned strongly bullish.

A strong quarterly earnings report from Lowe’s boosted investor sentiments. The tech-dominated NASDAQ is already up by 1.87%. It seems investors are on a buying spree today.

 

Stocks in focus today

  • General Electric is soaring and is already sitting on a gain of around 7%.

  • Investment banks JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs gained 3.5% and 3.2%, respectively.
