The weekly jobless claims fell again the week of May 23 to 200,000 against 210,000 expected.

Oil appreciated (WTI + 1.4% to $116.87 a barrel), despite the surprise announcement by OPEC+ of a higher than expected increase in its production quotas from July.

Due to the impact of exchange rates, Microsoft (+0.79% to 274.58) lowered its objectives for the 4th quarter.

Meta Platforms (+ 5.42% to 198.86), announced the departure of Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of the group for 14 years, and appointed Javier Olivan who will be the new COO.
