INDEXDJX:.DJI – Dow Jones Industrials Continue Climbing
The Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) continues it’s climb upward as the blue chip stocks march deeper into positive territory on Tuesday.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average Tuesday is up currently by 63 points, or 0.64% at 10,854.67. The S&P 500 was gaining +8.08 (0.70%), to 1,167.81, and the Nasdaq was up by +26.90 (1.13%), or 2,402.40.
According to TheSteet.com, UBS economists Maury Harris and Drew Matus said the European Union rescue package removes a downside risk to the U.S. by stabilizing financial markets.
“Continued high levels of volatility in financial markets and tighter credit conditions throughout Europe could have reduced the willingness of firms to borrow, expand and hire, thereby short-circuiting the ongoing U.S. economic recovery,” Matus said, adding that even steep moves in the exchange rate wouldn’t have had a huge effect on U.S. growth via the trade balance.
“It is likely the main impact would have come through a reduced ‘wealth effect’ related to the equity market decline in the U.S. and the EU crisis unfolded. Providing a partial offset to this weakness would have been lower bond yields and energy prices.”
