New York (awp / dpa) – The New York Stock Exchange was trying to recover on Monday shortly after opening, after a week of instability as the tech sector accelerated as bond prices fell slightly.
At around 3:00 PM GMT, the Dow Jones Index, which opened in the red, was at 0.09%. The Nasdaq, with a strong technology focus, advanced 0.83%. The S&P 500 gained 0.44%.
On Friday, the Dow Jones index fell 0.71% to 32,627.97 points. The Nasdaq index, which suffered its biggest decline in three weeks the previous day, rose 0.76% to 13,215.24 points. The S&P 500 index fell 0.06% to 3,913.10 points.
Interest rates on the 10-year Treasury eased slightly to 1.69% at opening from 1.74% on Friday.
Schwab analysts commented: “Investors are looking to recover from last week’s losses,” noting that bond yields “have calmed down a bit”.
They added that “IT stocks are benefiting from this decline in rates,” while the alleged growth stocks have suffered in recent weeks from fears of a rise in temperature and inflation that have hit bond yields.

Negative indicator, February’s Home Resale, which showed a sharper than expected drop (-6.6%), hardly worries investors. The slowdown in the real estate sector was mainly attributed to the cold snap that has paralyzed activities in a part of the country.
