S&P 500 index recovers losses after yesterday and is now trading near an important resistance level of 4/8 Murray or 2656.3. In case of its breakdown, the next target will be the level of 2675.8.
Market participants continue to monitor ten-year treasuries: if their profitability starts to grow again, the market will see a further decline. According to analysts' comments, a psychologically important barrier of 3% will be soon passed, so there is no reason to believe that the Fed will not raise the interest rate. The leaders of growth were the shares of Facebook, which yesterday added about 7% in view of excellent profit figures, which reached +63% for January-March and amounted to USD 4.99 billion. Earnings per share reached USD 1.69 against analysts' forecast of USD 1.35.
Today, investors will focus on important economic news from the US, such as the balance of foreign trade and orders for durable goods.
