- Wall Street’s main indexes started the new week in the green.
- Energy stocks post strong gains on rising crude oil prices.
- Technology shares stay in the negative territory after the opening bell.
After posting large losses last week, major equity indexes in the US started the new week modestly higher. As of writing, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.35% at 33,412, the S&P 500 was rising 0.16% at 4,173 and the Nasdaq Composite was rising 0.08% at 14,060.
In the absence of fundamental developments, Monday’s rebound looks like a technical correction.
Among the 11 major S&P 500 sectors, the Energy Index is up nearly 2% on the day supported by a 1% increase in US crude oil prices. On the other hand, the Technology Index is losing 0.55% after the opening bell.
