US stock market news
“Stocks rallied to their best weekly gain in more than four decades on Thursday after the Federal Reserve unexpectedly unleashed a new multi-trillion-dollar stimulus plan to support businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.
The S&P 500’s 1.5% rise Thursday brought its weekly gains to 12.1%, or its best one-week gain since 1974, as the Financials and Real Estate sectors outperformed. U.S. equity markets will be closed Friday in observance of Good Friday.
The Nasdaq posted a 10.6% weekly gain for its best since 2008. The Dow’s 2,666.84-point gain since last Friday marked its best weekly rise in point terms ever, and its 12.7% weekly advance was its best on a percentage basis in two weeks.
Investors also eyed the Department of Labor’s initial jobless claims report, which showed a greater than expected 6.606 million new individuals filed for unemployment insurance last week.”
