Technology Leads Rebound

U.S. stocks advanced last week with the S&P 500 rebounding with its strongest weekly gain since April following a narrow loss the week prior. Large cap technology stocks drove the S&P 500 higher, ending the shortened trading week at a new record high, its 34th all-time high of 2024. Markets were closed Thursday for the July 4 Independence Day holiday. The gains came after fresh labor market data reaffirmed many investors’ belief that the Federal Reserve can begin cutting interest rates during its September meeting. During the week Fed Chairman Powell noted there has been “quite a bit of progress” toward getting inflation back toward its 2% target.
