Wall Street Rises Focus Turns To Earnings From Geopolitics

Published

on

NEW YORK – U.S. stocks closed higher on Monday, with the biggest boosts from technology and healthcare sectors as investors were optimistic about earnings season and appeared less worried about U.S.-led missile attacks in Syria.

The weekend’s air strikes marked the biggest intervention yet by Western countries against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his ally Russia, which is facing further economic sanctions over its role in the conflict.

Stocks had ended lower on Friday on worries about Syria. But investors seemed less anxious about he potential for retaliation from Russia, an Assad ally, since there was none at the weekend.

“Geopolitical conditions calmed,” said Tim Ghriskey, Chief Investment Strategist at Inverness Counsel in New York. “There’s a lot of anticipation about very strong earnings growth in the quarter. That may be attracting traders and even longer-term investors back into the market.”

“I closed the app and went in again at 19:00 and only my account was showing – but my balance was showing at zero.

“I’ve closed the app again and have not been able to access it since.”

Responding to claims customer’s details were visible to others, a TSB spokeswoman told the Sun Online: “Protecting our customers’ data is our number one priority and we are investigating the reports we’ve seen on social media.”

Other customers took to Twitter to complain.
