The leading US economy index S&P 500 is correcting upwards at around 4261.0.

The US stock market continues to correct, and its dynamics depends on both corporate reporting and the news background, which was supported by yesterday's report by the US Federal Reserve. The authorities of the regulator noted that the tightening of monetary policy will continue, and designated the level of "sufficiency" at which the interest rate will be held for some time; however, the department stressed that this level has not yet been reached.
