NEW YORK (dpa-AFX) – Even after the recent price records on Wall Street on Easter Monday, investors waived major profit-taking on Tuesday. The Dow Jones Industrial (Dow Jones 30 Industrial) traded only slightly weaker in the first half hour after the start of the stock market, at minus 0.15 percent to 33,478.29 points. In the medium and long term, the trend arrow in the Dow clearly points upwards, wrote chart technology expert Franz-Georg Wenner from Index Radar.

A surprisingly strong increase in employment in the US in March had driven both the Dow and the broad-based S&P 500 to highs the previous day. On the technology-heavy Nasdaq stock exchange, however, new records failed to materialize. This Tuesday, the S&P 500 has so far been down 0.05 percent, hardly changed to 4076.04 points. The Nasdaq 100 was down 0.14 percent to 13,579.29 points.
