Despite an oil output cut from OPEC+ that threatens to stoke inflation and recession fears, Wall Street showed resilience on Monday, boosting the Dow Jones Industrial Average by more than 300 points.

After the Federal Reserve’s preferred inflation gauge revealed a price increase that was less than anticipated, U.S. stocks rose on Friday.

The core personal consumption expenditures index, which does not include costs for energy or food, increased in February by 0.3 percent rather than the expected 0.4 percent. The Nasdaq Composite made the biggest gains of any of the three major US indexes, closing higher by 1.74 percent.

Commodity

Last week, spot gold gained 0.83 percent to $1,984.29 per ounce. At $2,000.40, U.S. gold futures closed 0.7% higher.
