Wall Street extended its rally on Wednesday after the benchmark indices broke a four-day losing streak yesterday.

  • The Dow Jones index rose 1.60 percent
  • The Nasdaq index rose 1.54 percent
  • The S&P 500 rose 1.49 percent

However, the company’s development in China remains heavy, due in part to the country’s strict virus policy, according to Bloomberg.

Nike shares rose 12.19 percent.

Analysts had previously expected Nike sales to jump significantly, as the company offered large discounts during this period, according to Reuters news agency. This is, among other things, to get rid of excess stocks, which are widely accumulated in retail.

Increased confidence in the economy among US consumers

Consumer confidence that the US economy is moving in the right direction showed a new peak in December, according to Wednesday’s overview.

A certain increase in the consumer index was expected on the basis that inflation appears to be coming down somewhat and petrol prices are going down slightly.

But the increase announced on Wednesday shows a more marked increase than experts expected.

Confidence among consumers rebounded sharply in December and reversed the trend in October and November. Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators at The Conference Board, says the index hasn’t been this high since April.

Inflation in the US is the lowest since September, and fuel prices are showing a somewhat downward trend. The confidence index settled at 108.3 points in December, up from 101.4 points in the previous month.
