This week’s upswing flattened out on Wall Street

On Wednesday, only green numbers were in sight on the leading main indices on Wall Street. Thus, the week’s uptrend continues, but at a slower pace than before.

  • The technology index did best Nasdaq, which rose by 0.64 percent, to 15,786.
  • The market pulse S&P 500 climbed 0.31 percent, to 4,701.
  • The industry index Dow Jones could point to the lowest rise of the three, with an upward adjustment of 0.10 percent, to 35,754.

The Vix index – also called the “fear index” – because it measures the expected fluctuations on the S&P 500 over the next 30 days, fell by 8.73 percent to 19.98. Thus, the “fear” of how the markets will develop further has calmed down. A Vix score of less than 20 indicates a normal level, where there is little fear in the markets.

The yield on the ten-year US government bond – the ten-year – rose by 4.6 basis points, to 1.526 per cent.

The dollar price of a barrel of North Sea oil Brent rose by 0.81 percent, to 76 dollars a barrel. WTI oil rose 0.79 percent, to $ 72.69 a barrel.
