U.S. Indices Refreshed Records With New Highs On Friday

US stock markets opened on Friday, December 4, with well-coordinated growth that increased by the end of the day, enabling the key indexes to close the session at new historical highs.

According to the Ministry of Labor, the number of new jobs outside agriculture increased by only 245 thousand in November, which is significantly lower than the 460 thousand predicted, and this is the worst indicator since May 2020. This did not scare the players, however, but rather boosted expectations that Congress would accelerate new economic support initiatives.
