US OPEN: Wall Street opens higher on optimism surrounding peace talks

14:56 29 March 2022
  • US stocks opened higher
  • Peace talks show signs of progress
  • Nielsen Holdings (NLSN.US) stock surges 20% on M&A news

US indices launched today's session sharply higher on signs of progress in Ukraine peace talks. The Dow added 1.0% at the opening bell Tuesday, while the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100 jumped 1.1% and 1.5%. Russia claims that the Ukraine talks have entered a practical phase and that Zelensky-Putin meeting could take place in the future. Russia's deputy defense minister claimed Moscow has decided to scale back its military activity near Kyiv. However, these remarks should be treated with reserve, taking into account that the Kremlin's earlier declarations about the progress of the negotiations turned out to be untrue. Elsewhere investors await fresh US economic data, including JOLTS and Conference Board consumer confidence index.

US30 managed to break above local resistance around 35000 pts which now acts as support. If current sentiment prevails, upward move may accelerate towards 35800 pts, which is marked with upper limit of the larger 1:1 structure and 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the last downward correction.
