Wall Street ends in green, data marks the day

Thursday, 01. September 2022 22:03

Major stock markets in the United States ended Thursday's session in the positive territory after a very volatile session, with the latest batch of economic data marking the day so far. While the manufacturing activity slowed to the lowest level since July 2020, fewer people filed for unemployment during the past week compared to the week before.

The Dow Jones gained 0.46% or 145 points at the closing bell, while the S&P 500 rose by 0.30%. The Nasdaq 100 stood unchanged, pulled by Nvidia's and AMD's declines prompted by new export rules. The euro plunged 1.06% against the greenback to trade for 0.99474 at 4:03 pm ET, returning below parity levels.
