Arab Today, arab today US stocks hit new records on Fed minutes

New York - AFP

US stocks powered to new record highs Wednesday after Federal Reserve meeting minutes suggested the Fed\'s easy-money policies would remain in place for a while longer. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 128.78 (0.88 percent) to 14,802.24, a new all-time closing high. The broad-based S&P 500 surged 19.12 (1.22 percent) higher to 1,587.73, also a record. The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 59.39 (1.83 percent) to 3,297.25, reaching its highest level since November 2000. The gains came after Federal Reserve minutes suggested aggressive stimulus measures would be in place until the jobs market improves. Last week\'s weak jobs report suggests that could be a while. \"Reduced fears of tightening monetary policy is helping lift the market after the FOMC minutes showed a majority of the Fed is still opposed to tampering (with) its bond-buying program,\" said Wells Fargo in a market note. Most of the blue-chip companies in the Dow recorded gains. The biggest winners were General Electric (+2.2 percent), Intel (+2.4 percent), Merck (+2.9 percent), Pfizer (+2.8 percent) and Microsoft (+2.3 percent). Top Nasdaq companies also scored. Apple was up 2 percent and Google 1.6 percent, while added 3.3 percent and Micron Technology surged 5.4 percent. CarMax put on 3.9 percent after reporting higher earnings and higher-than-expected revenues. Barrick Gold sank 8.4 percent after a Chilean court suspended the company\'s Pascua Lama gold mine due to environmental concerns. The project has aroused intense opposition from environmentalists and indigenous groups. First Solar, which soared Tuesday on a bullish forecast for sales over the next three years, retreated 7.7 percent. Bond prices dropped. The yield on the 10-year Treasury rose to 1.81 percent from 1.75 percent late Tuesday, while the 30-year bond increased to 3.01 percent from 2.93 percent. Bond prices move inversely to yields.
