Dow Jones Futures: Nvidia Rallies Near Record Highs; Donald Trump Stock Set To Debut

Dow Jones futures, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures, were little changed ahead of Tuesday’s stock market open. Artificial intelligence leader Nvidia (NVDA) rallied near record highs, while former President Donald Trump’s social media platform Truth Social is expected to IPO Tuesday.


Digital World Acquisition (DWAC), which is now Trump Media & Technology Group after successfully merging with Trump’s tech and social-media platform, announced Monday that common stock and public warrants are expected to trade on the Nasdaq Tuesday under the ticker symbols “DJT” and “DJTWW,” respectively. DWAC shares surged 35% Monday.

Trump’s stake in Trump Media & Technology Group is valued at more than $3 billion, based on Digital World’s current stock price.

Nvidia stock climbed 0.8% Monday, as it approached more record highs. The AI giant is an IBD Leaderboard stock.

This week is a light one for economic data, with the spotlighted release — the Labor Department’s Personal Consumption Expenditures price index — expected out on Friday before the market opens. But Wall Street’s reaction will be delayed with the stock market closed for Good Friday.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the core PCE price index likely rose “well below 30 basis points” during February, putting the 12-month increase at 2.8%. Markets, once they’re open, would likely react if the outcome is different.

Earnings results slow down this week. But key earnings reports are expected from Jefferies Financial (JEF), Paychex (PAYX), Carnival (CCL) and RH (RH).
