The major indexes enjoyed a strong rebound of Thursday, with the Dow settling with a more than 614-point gain, nabbing its biggest daily jump since March 9. Meanwhile the Nasdaq added over 3% and the S&P 500 tacked on triple digits to notch, both logging their biggest daily percentage gains since early March as well. Promising earnings reports from several big names including Facebook parent Meta Platforms (FB), provided serious tailwinds for the market, as investors took some respite from the extreme volatility that's overshadowed the month of April. Despite today's positive price action, however, all three indexes are still on pace for notable monthly losses.

Gold Rises From 2-Month Rout

Oil prices saw their third-straight rise on Thursday, following a report that Germany no longer opposes the European Union (EU) ban on Russian oil purchases, though the country said it will need time to find another supply source. June-dated West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude added $3.34, or 3.3%, to close at $105.36 a barrel. 

Gold futures inched higher, coming off a two-month low, though the rising U.S. dollar still weighed. June-dated gold added $2.60, or 0.1%, to close at $1,891.30 an ounce.
