The US stock market had a flat week, with mixed economic signs leaving investors uncertain about the next move. On the other hand, the European stock market continued to experience bullish momentum, resulting in all three major European indexes closing the week with steady gains. Other major Asian indices traded on a mixed note. 

On the back of robust demand, Brent Crude gained 3% during the week to close at $85 level. And gold was slightly down by 0.61%.

Shortened trading week, profit booking on high-flying stocks, and mixed economic data all contributed to flat trading in the US stock market this week. Let’s see how the world’s most tracked indexes performed. 

Dow Jones

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index was mostly flat during Friday’s session as traders reacted to retail sales data, which had increased by 0.1% in May after falling 0.2% in April. On a week-on-week basis, the index was up by 1.45%. 

S&P 500

The S&P 500 failed to break and stay above the psychologically important 5500 level on Friday’s session as it lacked momentum. In Friday’s session, the index was down slightly by 0.16%, but on a week-on-week basis, it was up by 0.61%. 


Profit booking in some of the high-flying stocks, like Nvidia and Broadcom, resulted in a flat week for the tech-heavy index. In Friday’s session, the index was slightly down by 0.18%. 

The European stock market rebounded this week as concerns around political uncertainty appeared to reduce, and the outlook for monetary policy easing brightened. Let’s look at how the top three European indexes performed during the week. 

FTSE 100

London stocks closed the week on a positive note after domestic inflation fell to 2%, which is well within the Bank of England’s target zone. The FTSE 100 was down by 0.42% on Friday; however, it snapped the five-week losing streak, closing the week with gains of 1.12%. 

CAC 40

France’s equity market was mixed at the close in Friday’s session and dropped by 0.56%. However, on a week-on-week basis, the index closed higher at 1.67%. 


It was a mixed session for the German stock market during the week. On Thursday, the country reported the producer prices, which declined by 2.2% year-on-year in May after a fall of 3.3% in April, thus relieving much of the inflation concerns. In Friday’s session, DAX was down by 0.50% and concluded the week with a cumulative gain of 0.90%. 

The Asian market’s major indexes traded mixed during the week, influenced primarily by domestic issues. However, the market keeps a tight eye on global developments, particularly central bank comments regarding rate cuts. Let’s look at how the various Asian indices performed over the week. 

Nifty 50

The Indian market continues to trade with optimistic biases; however, the past week has seen increased volatility. On Friday, the Nifty 50 was down by 0.28%, and on a week-on-week basis, it was up by 0.64%. 

Nikkei 225

The Japanese stock market traded with a negative bias during the week, as data showed inflation had accelerated in May, and the Yen had also weakened against the US Dollar. On Friday, the Nikkei 225 was slightly down by 0.09%, concluding the week with a cumulative loss of 0.56%.

Straits Times

The Strait Times, Singapore’s leading stock market index, traded on a weak note throughout the week. It was up by 0.15% on Friday and ended the week with a slight gain of 0.26%.

Hang Seng

Led by losses in real estate and tech stocks, Hang Seng declined by 1.70% on Friday. However, on a week-on-week basis, the index gained 0.48%. 

Taiwan Weighted

Taiwan Weighted Index traded with a positive bias during the week. Despite the negative close of 0.66% on Friday, the index was up by 3.33% on a weekly basis. 


During the week, the KOSPI index touched a multi-year high and is at its highest level since January 2022. In Friday’s session, the index closed 0.84% lower, but on a week-on-week basis, it was up by 0.94%.

SET Composite

Thailand shares gained on Friday, with the SET Composite up by 0.62%. However, on a week-on-week basis, the index closed completely flat with a minor loss of 0.01%. 

Jakarta Composite

The Indonesian stock market rebounded this week after Morgan Stanley downgraded it earlier. In Friday’s session, the Jakarta Composite rose 0.88%, bringing the week’s total gains to 2.16%. 

Shanghai Composite

The continued decline in China housing prices and mixed economic data dampened investor sentiment. In Friday’s session, the Shanghai Composite was down by 0.24% and concluded the week with a cumulative loss of 1.14%. 

Wrapping Up

Global markets remain cautiously optimistic as investors continue to weigh mixed economic signals. In the US, concerns about slowing growth and persistent inflation kept markets flat, while Europe saw a bullish trend driven by easing political uncertainty and positive economic outlooks. Asian markets experienced mixed performances, heavily influenced by domestic factors and global developments. Overall, staying informed is key for investors navigating the evolving global market landscape.
