US stocks open on mixed performance

US stock indices opened on mixed performance in today's session- the last session of the week -in light of the emergence of political concerns in the markets and the anticipation for more corporate business reports.

 

This comes despite the decline of jobless claims in the United States last week to the lowest level in five decades, while the index of retail sales rose in March, to reach the largest pace in 18 months.

 

News agencies will reveal today what is known as special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Trump and Russia, which may reveal details about the extent of connection between the US President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 US presidential election.

 

Tomorrow for Wall Street and a number of international markets will be  a public holiday to celebrate the "Friday of Sorrows" or "Good Friday".
