Hello Part-time Trader…👋

U.S. stock indexes edged higher in Friday's premarket session as investors return from the Fourth of July holiday to focus on the latest employment update with June payrolls data.

After Thursday's holiday and Wednesday's shortened trading session, U.S. markets are reopening with a significant update: nonfarm payrolls will be released at 8:30 a.m. Eastern. The economy is expected to add 200,000 jobs in June, a decline from the preliminary 272,000 added in the previous month.

On Wednesday, the S&P 500 set a new closing high, rising 0.5% to 5,537.02. The Nasdaq Composite also reached a new high, closing up 159.54 points, or 0.8%, to 18,188.30. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped by 23.85 points to 39,308.

In corporate news, Samsung reported a near 16-fold increase in profit, likely driven by strong demand for memory chips used in AI processors, similar to those produced by Nvidia.

In the cryptocurrency market, Bitcoin's price is dropping as the collapsed exchange Mt. Gox prepares to refund digital assets to its users. Other cryptocurrencies like Ether, Solana, Cardano, and Dogecoin are also experiencing declines.
