US Stocks Rebound on Monday, European Markets Mostly High.


London, Monday, 31 January 2022 -



US Markets summary


The final trading day of January saw US stocks close significantly higher, led by advances in consumer discretionary, communication services, and technology firms. The three major indexes managed to recoup some of their losses for the month, but they still suffered significant losses as a result of mixed earnings reports and the Fed's shift to a more hawkish monetary policy, with investors increasingly betting on five rate hikes in 2022.
