   CME GLOBEX RECAP: World equity markets are mixed Friday morning after
Thursday's monster rally in stocks pushed both the Dow and the S&P 500 to new
highs. The rally was led by Nvidia which was up over 13%, and this helped the
NASDAQ approach new highs as well. Higher interest rates had kept tech stocks
from moving to new highs, but the results for Nvidia that are being driven by
AI are what drove the rally on Thursday.

   The results from Thursday's new economic data were mixed, with the services
PMI below expectations but the manufacturing PMI stronger than expected.
Existing home sales were slightly higher than traders anticipated, while
jobless claims were lower. All in all, the data suggested a good but not great
economy.
