Stocks Benefited From Better Than Expected Economic Data

Stocks and U.S. economy

On Wednesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, as well as S&P 500, saw gains thanks to better than expected economic data. Importantly, a report from ADP showed private payrolls stateside falling by 2.76 million in May. This result is better than expected, as it was expected that private payrolls would fall by 8.75 million according to economists. This report had a positive impact on U.S. stocks.

For example, the Dow Jones Industrial Average saw gains for the third day in a row. The Dow Jones surged 527 points or just over 2% on Wednesday. Moreover, the S&P 500 strengthened its position for the fourth day in a row.

The coronavirus pandemic became the main topic of discussion among investors, analysts, and government officials. It will take time to deal with all problems associated with the pandemic. It won’t be easy to get the economy back on track without cooperation. Hopefully, governments are ready to spend billions of dollars and support their economies. Moreover, to achieve a sustainable rally when it comes to markets, strong signs of economic or earnings recovery are important. Otherwise, it will be tough to boost the markets.
