US500 index climbing to 5,030 points from $4,960 at the start of the US session. This turnaround suggests a shift in investor sentiment towards equities, potentially driven by positive market developments or improved outlooks for certain sectors or companies.

Initially, stock markets opened higher but then fell in the first few hours of trading before reversing back up. As we head into the US close, it’s clear that bulls are declaring victory. Investors are also awaiting the earnings reports from steel giants Nucor and Cleveland-Cliffs, which could shed light on the industrial economy and auto demand. However, the major earnings reports are expected tomorrow morning from companies like UPS, GE, GM, Spotify, Tesla and Visa. These earnings reports could have a significant impact on market sentiment and direction.

The FTSE 100 in the UK led the way with a significant gain of 1.7%, followed by the Stoxx 600 and the German DAX, both rising by 0.6%. However, the Italian MIB index saw a decline of 0.7%. The French CAC index posted a modest gain of 0.2%, while the Spanish IBEX index recorded a notable increase of 1.5%. Overall, the market movements reflect a varied performance across different European markets.
