The floor of Wall Street tried to shake on Tuesday five days of nerves and tension since the shares of the Californian bank SVB plunged last Thursday, which the next day it was closed by the US authorities, and which affected the entire financial system with repercussions on the entire economy.

The banks most affected by the intervention of the SVB and the Signature Bank, which closed last Sunday, rebounded strongly on Tuesday after seeing how his stock was sinking in recent days, while various credit bureaus like Moody’s have reported them as possible candidates for new closures.

Thus, First Republic was up 48% after opening, Western Alliance Bank was up 43%, PacWest was up 53%, Comerica was up 11%, and Zions was up 15%.

In the same way that the big financial firms were weighed down by the downturns of these banks, they also joined the upswing this Tuesday and in the morning JPMorgan Chase shares are up 1.57%, Bank of America rebounded 2.93%, Citigroup 5.27%, Wells Fargo 5.1% and US Bancorp 4.3%.

Inflation

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has announced the year-over-year inflation rate in the United States continued to decline in Februaryfor the eighth consecutive month, and stands at 6%, four tenths less than in January.

However, in monthly terms, consumer prices have risen four-tenths, at a time when the Federal Reserve (Fed) faces close scrutiny for its measures to curb inflation, and more now after the SVB bank debacle and fears of a banking crisis.

At the sector level, the gains of financials (2.36%) and communications (2.26%) stand out, followed by raw materials (negative 1.96 days).

Among the 30 Dow Jones stocks, the most favored companies were Salesforce (4.4%), American Express (3.43%) and Goldman Sachs (3.19%), while only three opened in the red with Travelers (- 0.61).
