NEW YORK (Reuters) – The three major stock market indexes in the U.S. stock market rose across the board. In addition to continuing to digest the results of the US Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) from the previous day, the mixed results of corporate earnings and economic indicators were seen as a factor.

The US Federal Reserve (FRB) decided to keep interest rates unchanged at the FOMC meeting held from April 30th to May 1st. Chairman Powell said it would likely take longer than previously expected to gain the “greater confidence” needed to begin lowering rates, leaving uncertainty as to whether the Fed would begin cutting rates before the end of the year.See more

“The key point is that the Fed’s bias remains either to hold interest rates the same or to lower them,” said Paul Nolte, senior wealth advisor and market strategist at Murphy & Sylvest. “The Fed has no intention of raising rates; it will keep them there and move quickly to lower rates if there is any sign of economic weakness or falling inflation,” he said.

U.S. economic indicators released on the 2nd showed overall solid results, with the number of unemployment insurance claims remaining flat, layoffs decreasing, and non-agricultural sector labor productivity (preliminary figures) increasing in the first quarter. All eyes will be on the US employment statistics for April, which will be announced on the 3rd.
