The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 52.45 points, or 0.4% (+1.3% wow) to 12,505.99, as corporate earnings by Travelers, Apple, Morgan Stanley and Qualcomm topped estimates. The S&P 500 gained 0.5% to 1,337.38.

New applications for unemployment benefits in the U.S. fell less than forecast last week, indicating the labor market will take time to improve. Jobless claims decreased by 13,000 to 403,000 in the week ended April 16. The number of people on unemployment benefit rolls and those receiving extended payments declined.

It’s a common saying that stock market can change fortune in either way. But now the question is how to earn money from the Indian stock market.
