Prior to Christmas and the New Year amid growing expectations of investors of an interest rates hike in the US in December, American stock indices keep strengthening.
Last Friday the S&P 500 grew by 0.4%, Nasdaq Composite by 0.6% and Dow Jones Industrial Average by 0.5% that was the strongest weekly growth after the world markets slump in August.
Today attention needs to be paid to the Chicago Fed National Activity Index for October that estimates economic activity and inflationary pressures and to the Markit Manufacturing PMI for November. Strong data will strengthen DJIA.
