Among them, only the S&P 500 index has reached the 22nd record high during the year. The AI boom still shows no sign of slowing down, and Nvidia and others continue to be leaders in rising US stocks.

Looking ahead to April, the performance of US stocks is also worth looking forward to. Dow Jones market statistics have found that in the past 20 years, April has been one of the best three months of the year. The probability that the S&P 500 will rise is 80%, and the average yield is 2%.
