When the US stock market opens on Monday, all three benchmark indices will rise.
At about opening, the indices looked like this:
- Dow Jones up 0.83 percent
- Nasdaq Composite 0.83 percent
- S&P 500 up 0.80 percent
Although there was also an Easter holiday on the American stock exchanges on Friday, several things have happened that will add color to the day.
Among investors, it may be especially those who have invested in Tesla who can look forward to a good stock market day. The company’s share rises around six percent from the start after the company surprised with record numbers on Friday.
In the first quarter, Tesla delivered almost 185,000 cars, which was over 4,000 more than in the previous quarter. Analysts had previously expected the company to deliver 168,000 cars in the quarter, writes CNBC.
“We are encouraged by the strong reception of the Model Y in China, and are rapidly increasing towards full production capacity,” Tesla wrote in Friday’s announcement.
