Wall Street witnessed a mixed trading day today, with price increases and declines across various markets worldwide. The Nasdaq index fell by 0.4%, the Dow Jones by 0.1%, and the S&P 500 by 0.3%.

Several stocks garnered interest on the market, including Donald Trump’s social network, Truth Social, which jumped on its first day of trading but closed with a gain of about 15%. Krispy Kreme saw a 40% jump after a distribution agreement with McDonald’s. Viking Therapeutics rose about 16% following good trial results for a weight-loss drug. On the other hand, stock UPS fell sharply after initially jumping, attributed to the company’s new strategy and forecast announcement.

In Europe, stock markets closed with price increases due to positive trends and favorable economic factors. Bitcoin traded at $69,700 per coin throughout the day. Various stocks experienced jumps and stabilizations in trading throughout the day worldwide.

The global economy is facing several challenges, including issues in Ivory Coast and Ghana that have caused a cocoa production crisis affecting chocolate manufacturers who may pass on costs to consumers. This issue is expected to impact chocolate prices by 2025. Companies like Viking Therapeutics have reported positive trial results for weight loss drugs, while others are struggling with new strategies and forecast announcements that may affect their stock prices negatively or positively depending on their performance throughout the year ahead.
