Nasdaq Gains 271 Points Amid Tech Rally

Stocks finished the day mixed after a cooler-than-expected PPI reading provided some relief from yesterday's inflation fears. Investors flocked to tech, pushing the Nasdaq to a 271-point win, its largest daily gain since February. (AMZN) hit a record high, while the Dow, on the other hand, inched below fair value just before the close, notching a fourth-consecutive daily loss. The S&P 500 finished with a modest gain. 






Oil prices fell today, as investors continue to monitor Iran and Israel. May-dated West Texas Intermediate (WTI) fell $1.19, or 1.4%, to settle at $85.02 a barrel 

Gold prices rose, as hopes of interest rate cuts regained footing following today's PPI data. At last check, June-dated gold futures were up $32.40, or 1.4%, at $2,381.10 per ounce.
