Wall Street Indices Are Mixed; Nasdaq falls for Apple and Microsoft

The main stock indices of the US market operate mixed, after a positive opening. Wall Street negotiates with disparate movements, a day after the Federal Reserve announced a faster reduction in its pandemic-era stimulus, easing fears of inflation.

The benchmark index S&P 500, made up of the shares of the 500 strongest firms, moved 0.23% to 4,720.83 points. The Dow Jones, made up of 30 industrial giants, rises 0.59% to 36,140.85 points. The index Nasdaq, with a high technological component, falls -0.44% and stands at a level of 15,496.80 points.

“In the United States, the stock markets opened in green; however, the spirits moderated in the first minutes of negotiations, with the Nasdaq in red, following a fall of Apple and Microsoft,” explained the eToro platform. The actions of Apple Inc lose -1.83% and those of Microsoft Corp they lose -0.80 percent.

Among the issuers with gains, the shares of the construction machinery and equipment company stand out Caterpillar, which are up 2.63 percent. Its movement is registered after data of the beginning of construction of new houses in the United States better than the estimates and new permits for construction.
