New York stocks close: Dow turns positive – hope for good tech numbers | 04/25/22

NEW YORK (dpa-AFX) – On Monday, the US stock markets turned their initially significant price losses into profits in the course of trading. Traders justified the rebound with growing optimism that some of the big US tech companies’ upcoming quarterly earnings releases this week will be good. Interest rate and economic fears still dominated early trading. The news that Twitter had given up resistance to a takeover by tech billionaire Elon Musk caused a stir in late business.

The leading index Dow Jones Industrial (Dow Jones 30 Industrial) temporarily lost more than 3.5 percent in the first half of the session before it struggled vigorously and turned positive. Ultimately, the leading US index gained 0.70 percent to 34,049.46 points. The market-wide S&P 500 closed up 0.57 percent at 4296.12 points. The tech-heavy NASDAQ 100 rose 1.32 percent to 13,533.22 points./edh/he
