The main US stock indexes finished trading on the positive territory

Major US stock indices rose slightly, helped by the appreciation of Facebook shares (FB) and the growth of quotations in the consumer goods sector.

In addition, investors focused on the long-awaited meeting of US President Donald Trump with North Korean leader Kim Jong-no. Officials of both countries will seek to limit disagreements as to how to put an end to the nuclear confrontation on the Korean peninsula.

Market participants are also preparing for meetings of the Central Banks. This week, just three central banks - the Fed (on Wednesday), the ECB (on Thursday) and the Bank of Japan (on Friday) - will announce their decisions on the further course of development of their monetary and credit policies. At the same time, as analysts expect, the first one will report an increase in interest rates, and the second will discuss the issue of the end of monetary incentives.

Most of the components of DOW finished trading in positive territory (17 out of 30). The leader of growth was UnitedHealth Group Incorporated (UNH, + 1.32%). Outsider were shares of McDonald's Corporation (MCD, -1.29%).

Almost all sectors of S & P recorded a rise. The consumer goods sector grew most (+ 0.6%). The utilities sector fell most of all (-0.3%).

At closing:

Dow 25,322.31 +5.78 +0.02%

S & P 500 2,782.00 +2.97 +0.11%

Nasdaq 100 7.659.93 +14.41 +0.19%
