The S&P 500 has regained its composure, rising 0.53% to 3,777.04, although far from Wednesday’s high of around 3,800. For its part, the technology index, the Nasdaq 100, once again led the rises, gaining 0.90%, to 11,151.78, followed by the Dow Jones Industrial (DJIA), which rose 0.37%, to 30,595.05.

The USD has recovered some ground and is approaching 104.374, up 0.18%. Meanwhile, US Treasury yields remain on the defensive, with the 10-year US Treasury yield falling 14 basis points, yielding 3,018%, retracing from weekly highs near 3,317. %.

Meanwhile, US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell is speaking to the US Congress for the second day in a row.

At the time of this writing, Fed Governor Michelle Bowman stated that another rate hike of 75 basis points in July, followed by at least 50 basis points at subsequent meetings, would be desirable.
