SP500 gains ground as traders buy AI-related stocks. Advanced Micro Devices, which is up by 9%, is the biggest gainer in today’s trading session. Today, traders also focused on the Initial Jobless Claims report. The report showed that 220,000 Americans filed for unemployment benefits in a week, compared to analyst consensus of 222,000.  Treasury yields were mostly flat as bond traders waited for additional catalysts after the recent moves. Today’s rally was broad, and the majority of market segments were moving higher. However, energy stocks remained under pressure as oil markets tested new lows amid worries about demand for oil in China.

From the technical point of view, SP500 continues its attempts to settle above the key resistance at 4575 – 4600. If SP500 settles above the 4600 level, it will gain additional upside momentum and head towards the next resistance at 4730 – 4750.
