The stock markets in New York are closed on Thursday due to Independence Day. Fourth of July is a national holiday in the United States, on which the adoption of the American Declaration of Independence is celebrated on July 4, 1776. On Wednesday, Wall Street left the trade after a short trade session with records. The positive trend was partly due to the expectation for more flexible monetary policy by central banks through intended appointments at the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank (ECB). The leading Dow-Jones index closed the session 0.7 percent higher on a record of 26,966.00 points. The broad S&P 500 rose 0.8 percent to 2995.82 points, also the highest final ranking ever. Nasdaq also set a record with a profit of 0.8 percent to 8170.23 points. The stock exchanges in New York will open again on Friday. Investors are particularly looking forward to the important job report that is then published.
