The main stock indexes of the united States had a opening flat to slightly positive Thursday, as investors cheered the encouraging report quarterly earnings, which justified the extensive valuation of the market.
The positive opening, however, lacked conviction in the midst of the disappointment of the plan of fiscal reform much-awaited by the us president, Donald Trump, which was released on Wednesday, but lacked specific details on how to finance the tax cuts without increasing the deficit.
During the opening time of the trade, the Nasdaq composite index of high-tech went up almost 18 points and was negotiated to a record level of around 6.043. Meanwhile, the S & P 500 index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average remained almost unchanged with respect to the closing levels of yesterday.
On the front of economic data, the disappointing publication of orders for durable goods and an unexpected jump in applications for weekly unemployment weighed further on investor sentiment and did little to provide a new impetus to the markets.
In the actions of the central bank on Thursday, both the BOJ as the ECB left its monetary policy unchanged, but offered economic prospects optimistic.
