US Exchange

On Thursday, the US stock market was mixed. As a sharp drop in unemployment insurance claims to 16-month lows signalling the economy’s sustained reopening, technology stocks were the hardest hit. Apple shares were down 0.5 percent, Amazon was down 1.4 percent, and Facebook was down 0.9 percent. When the country was in lockdown, these businesses thrived. Morgan Stanley’s stock increased 0.2 percent after the company reported profits.
