The main U.S. stock indices ended Monday with growth in anticipation of the minutes of the meeting of the Federal Reserve. Dow Jones at the close added 0.58%, S&P 500 - 0.74%, Nasdaq - 1.13%.
Market participants' attention is focused on the publication of the minutes of the October meeting of the Fed, scheduled for today. Most of them expect the regulator to refrain from raising the key rate in December. In addition, it is becoming increasingly likely that he will begin to reduce it by the summer of 2024, investing.com writes.
On European sites, the mood was not so optimistic - key indices mostly declined after a positive last week. German DAX and British FTSE 100 for the trading session lost 0.11%, only the French CAC 40 rose by 0.18%.
Gold fell 0.22% to $1980.30 per troy ounce on the Comex exchange during the trading session. According to Kitco Metals, the reason is the rise in yields on U.S. government bonds, which is now more interesting to players, reports the agency "Prime".
