Wall Street ended the day with a triple record and said goodbye to its best month of the year.

The top three indices of the New York stock market, the Nasdaq, the Dow Jones, and the S&P 500, finished at all-time highs.

Wall Street closed this Friday with gains that raised the leading market indicators to new all-time highs, marking the best month of the year.

According to data at the end of the New York Stock Exchange session, the Dow Jones rose 0.25% or 89.08 points to 35,819.56 units; and the S&P 500 rose 0.19% or 8.96 points 4,605.38. In addition, the composite index of the Nasdaq market, in which the technology companies with the largest capitalization are listed, rose 0.33% or 50.27 units, to 15,498.39 points.

The New York stock market went through a volatile day. Still, it recovered shortly before the bell, encouraged by the earnings season, despite the weak data offered by some large technology companies.

In October, the Dow Jones was up 4.35%, the S&P 500 5.70%, and the Nasdaq a remarkable 6.40%.

Investors appeared to downplay the weak quarterly results reported by Amazon and Apple, which fell about 2 percent.

On the other hand, they awarded the shares of Exxon Mobil's shares (0.25%) and Chevron (1.20%), which posted their best quarterly results in several years.

The market also did not appear concerned by data pointing to a slowdown in consumer spending in the US in September, adding to fears of slowing economic growth.

By sectors, the progress of health companies (0.95%), communications (0.83%), and technology (0.43%) stood out, although losses predominated, led by real estate companies (-1.19% ).

Among the 30 listed on the Dow Jones, Microsoft led earnings (2.24%), which has once again positioned itself as the largest listed company globally, surpassing Apple. Intel (1.91%), MSD (1.73%), and Nike (1.72%) also rose.

Behind Apple, the most affected were Dow Inc (-1.06%) and 3M (-0.66%).

In other markets, Texas oil rose to $ 83.57 a barrel, and at the close of Wall Street, gold rose to $ 1,784.10 an ounce; the yield on the 10-year Treasury bond fell to 1.559%, and the dollar gained ground against the euro, with a change of 1.1561.
