NEW YORK (dpa-AFX) – The US stock exchanges continued their recent recovery on Friday. After the price slide, especially from the end of April to mid-May, bargain hunters grabbed it again and used the supposedly cheap prices to get started, said stockbrokers. In addition, over the course of the week, investors had taken the minutes of the US Federal Reserve Bank of the most recent interest rate meeting as evidence that monetary policy was only gradually tightened to combat high inflation. The leading index Dow Jones Industrial made it the biggest weekly percentage gain since November 2020, up 6.24 percent.
