The Easter week also marked the end of the quarter.

The US stock market finished trading on Monday with significant growth, and the rate of increase of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Standard & Poor's 500 became the highest since the summer of 2015 due to the weakening fears associated with US foreign trade policy, writes The Wall Street Journal. At the same time, many analysts agreed that the rise of the market on Monday was rather technical in nature than was associated with a significant shift in sentiment. Despite the difficult for the US shares last week, in the second quarter the situation on the market may be favorable, conditions for stabilization will be created, and asset allocation should still be oriented to growth, analysts of JPMorgan Chase & Co. believe. led by John Normand. The high-tech sector showed rapid growth in hopes of a US-China agreement on trade issues: Microsoft added 7.6%, Netflix - 6.5%, Amazon - 4%, Apple - 4.8%.

On Tuesday, the auction ended in the red zone. The indices fell due to the sale of shares of high-tech companies. Of the 30 companies whose securities are included in the calculation of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the cost has declined in 25. Seven out of the eleven major industry groups Standard & Poor's 500 showed negative dynamics. In addition to the technology sector, the largest decline was noted in the financial sector and the consumer sector. The index of consumer confidence in the US in March fell to 127.7 points, the research organization Conference Board reported yesterday, which calculates this indicator. Analysts on average expected an increase in the indicator this month. The attention of bidders was still focused on Facebook Inc., as the owner of the world's largest social network remains at the center of various scandals and proceedings.

The fall continued on Wednesday, despite positive data on US GDP. Sale in the technology sector continued due to scandals around the social network Facebook, as well as on the news that the US is considering the possibility to limit Chinese investments in a number of technologies. The US Department of Commerce raised the estimate of GDP growth in the fourth quarter of 2017 from 2.5% to 2.9% in annual terms, the final data show. Analysts polled by Bloomberg on average expected a 2.7% revision. More rapid than expected growth was facilitated by household spending on services and a reduction in the negative impact of inventory.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average index increased by 254.69 points (1.07%) and amounted to 24.103.11 points. Standard & Poor's 500 increased by 35.87 points (1.38%) - to 2640.87 points.
