US equity markets advanced after a choppy session, with the Federal Reserve forecasting a fast economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and said it would maintain its interest rate at close to zero– Dow up +189-points or +0.58% to a fresh record closing high of 33,015.37 (after hitting a fresh intra-day high of 33,047.58) – the first settlement above >33,000. It also marked the fastest ever trip through consecutive 1000-point milestones, moving above >33,000 just five trading days after clearing 32,000 (albeit the hurdle obviously become less taxing in percentage terms the higher the index moves).

The second-fastest move between milestones was an eight-day journey from 25,000 to 26,000, a rise of 4%. The Walt Disney Co gained 0.5% after CEO Bob Chapek told CNBC that California’s two Disneyland theme parks will reopen on April 30. The broader S&P500 added +0.29% to a record close of 3,974.12 after setting an intra-day all-time high of 3,983.87 and erasing an earlier decline of -0.7%. Consumer Discretionary (up +1.41%) and Industrials (+1.12%) gained over >1% to lead six of the eleven primary sectors higher. Utilities (down 1.63%) was the worst performing sector. Amazon.com Inc (up +1.4% and Tesla Inc (+3.7%) provided the biggest lift to the index. The Nasdaq added +0.40% after also erasing earlier losses that saw the technology-centric index down as much as 1.5%. The small capitalisation Russell 2000 index rose +0.73%. AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc climbed ~4% in extended trading after the movie-theatre chain said that 98% of its U.S. locations will open starting Friday (19 March), and that 99% should be open by 26 March.
