The main index on the Wall Street S&P 500 has once again improved its all-time record. At the end of last trading week, it exceeded 4100 points. The Dow Jones Industrial Average also climbed to the highest level of all time.

The buying impulse was provided by the New York Stock Exchange with up-to-date data on price rises at the level of industrial firms. The producer price index has risen 4.2 percent over the past 12 months, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday.

At this rate, prices in American industry last increased in September 2011, when the US economy was recovering from the effects of the financial and economic crisis. Prices in the energy sector rose the most, mainly due to the increase in feedstock, especially oil.

Investors are naturally looking for a safe haven where they can safely deposit their money and protect it from inflation. Stocks are one such option. Moreover, the Governor of the Federal Reserve assured on Thursday that the central bank does not intend to tighten monetary policy now, and that inflation has only temporarily risen. Helping the US economy gain stability remains a priority for the Fed.
