US Stocks on the Rise with Exciting Events Ahead

Today, the stock market in the United States is looking up. After a bit of a rough patch, things are starting to improve. There are some big events lined up, and investors are hopeful.

The S&P 500, a big indicator of the stock market's health, went up by about 0.7%. It had gone down quite a bit on Friday, so this rise is a positive sign. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which measures the performance of some of the biggest companies, also went up by around 0.8%. It gained more than 250 points after dropping more than 350 points in the last session.

The Nasdaq Composite, which focuses on technology companies, also saw an increase of about 0.8%. Last week wasn't great for tech companies, so this rise is a welcome change.

Now, everyone's attention is on two things: the Federal Reserve and Apple. The Federal Reserve is like the bank for banks, and what they decide can have a big impact. Apple, on the other hand, is one of the biggest companies in the stock market. They're going to tell everyone how well they've been doing. People are also eagerly waiting for the jobs report for October, which will come out on Friday.

Some experts think that the Federal Reserve will keep things the same when it comes to interest rates. This is important because it affects how much it costs to borrow money. Apple, being such a big player, can also influence how people feel about the stock market.

Another thing people are curious about is how McDonald's, the famous fast-food chain, is doing. They released their financial report today. It seems like people in the U.S. are still buying their food, even though it's getting a bit more expensive.

In the world of oil, prices went down a bit. This happened because of what's going on in the Middle East. Some people were worried, but now it seems things might not get worse. This made investors feel more confident about trading. West Texas Intermediate futures, which is a way to buy oil in the future, went down by 1.8% and ended up at $84.01. Brent futures, another way to buy oil in the future, dropped by 1.5% and stayed around $87.86.

All in all, things are looking up for the stock market today. Let's hope this positive trend continues!
