Stock Market Gains: Federal Reserve Optimism Sparks Positive Market Momentum

Stocks went up on Monday after a good week for the market. People are feeling hopeful that the Federal Reserve might stop making things stricter.

The Nasdaq Composite, S&P 500, and Dow Jones Industrial Average all went up by about 0.3% after the market opened.

Last Friday, important stock numbers in the US went up a lot. This happened because jobs didn't grow as much as people thought they would, and the cost of wages didn't go up too fast. This made many people think that the Federal Reserve might not make it harder for people to borrow money.

The amount of money that the government pays if you lend them money for ten years went up a little bit, about 7 points, to about 4.63%.

This week, people will listen carefully when some important people from the Federal Reserve talk. This includes the leader, Jerome Powell, who will talk two times. Also, John Williams and Raphael Bostic, who are leaders from different parts of the US, will talk.

But some experts on Wall Street say we should be careful. They think maybe people are too hopeful and that the stock market might move a lot. A person from Morgan Stanley, Mike Wilson, said that last week's good news for stocks might just be a temporary improvement.

Also, there are still more reports about how companies are doing that will come out, and that can make the stock market change. But there aren't many big economic things happening this week. The most important thing is finding out how Disney is doing on Wednesday.

In the world of things like oil, the price went up. This happened because two big countries that sell a lot of oil, Saudi Arabia and Russia, said they will keep making less oil for a while. This made the price of oil go up by more than 1% in the US, and a little less than 1% in other countries.
