Stock Market Continues 9-Week Surge, Nvidia’s Annual Gain Approaches 240%

Stock Market Continues 9-Week Surge, Nvidia's Annual Gain Approaches 240%

Despite a slight decline in the U.S. stock market on Friday, all three major indices marked their ninth consecutive week of gains.  

Throughout December, the fourth quarter, and the entirety of 2023, substantial increases were observed. 

Last Friday, which marked the final trading day for December, the fourth quarter, and 2023, all three indices recorded gains within these periods.  

The S&P 500 index is within reach of its all-time high. Its highest closing level was 4796.56 points set in January 2022, with an intraday peak at 4818.62 points. 

Brian Barish, Chief Investment Officer at Cambiar Investors LLC, noted, “The belief that major central banks have taken adequate measures to quell the surge in inflation from 2022-23 is driving this uptrend.

While concerns may arise—such as the elections, the substantial bond financing needs of the U.S. government, and the possibility of resurging inflation—currently, there’s limited news and few sellers.
