Wall Street starts ‘buoyant’ after US jobs data

Wall Street

The Wall Street stock indices operate this Friday, August 4, in the field of gains, after the non-farm payroll data in the United States, in July, reported the creation of 187,000 jobs, below the 200,000 expected.

The foregoing reduces expectations that the Fed will maintain its monetary policy in a restrictive zone and before this, the Nasdaq leads the gains with 0.66 percent, in the whole 14 thousand 51.72, followed by an increase of 0.55 percent for the Dow Industrial Average Jones with 0.55 percent, while the S&P 500 adds 0.50 percent, at 4,524.62 points.

“We estimate that the biggest catalyst for the session will be the mixed reading of the employment figures in the United States since no more relevant economic information is expected for the day,” say analysts from Grupo Financiero Ve por Más.
