Latin American stock markets closed today mixed despite the good day of Wall Street, its benchmark, which managed to overcome its slump thanks to positive business results.
The Dow Jones Industrials, the key New York indicator, rose 2.17% and ended at 25,798.42 units, while the S & P 500 advanced 2.15% to 2,809.92 points.
The composite index of the Nasdaq market, in which the main technological firms are listed, finished in 7,645.37 units after climbing 2.89%.
The New York operators finally managed to break the sequence that had dragged the previous week by investors' concerns about the public debt and US interest rates.
Today they celebrated, on the other hand, the better than expected business results of key firms such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, BlackRock, United Health or Johnson & Johnson.
The same positive sentiment was experienced early in Europe, where they ended with considerable gains Milan (2.23%), Madrid (1.69%), Paris (1.53%), Frankfurt (1.40%) and London ( 0.43%).
