The local market took lead from Wall Street on Friday to close the final trading session of the week up 0.52%, led by a strong rally for materials and information technology stocks.

The winning stocks on Friday were led by Champion Iron (ASX:CIA) jumping 5.15% as China’s easing of some COVID-19 restrictions fuelled a rally in the price of iron ore, while Sandfire Resources (ASX:SFR) and BrainChip Holdings (ASX:BRN) each added 4.81% and 4.1% respectively. On the losing end of the market, Novonix (ASX:NVX) fell 4.53%, while Capricorn Metals (ASX:CMM) and Pinnacle Investment Management (ASX:PNI) tanked 4.33% and 3.77% respectively on Friday.

The most traded stocks by Bell Direct clients on Friday were Fortescue Metals Group (ASX:FMG), BHP Group (ASX:BHP) and Core Lithium (ASX:CXO).

Over in the US on Friday, Wall Street reversed again to end the week lower as investors look ahead to key inflation data and the last FOMC meeting which ae both this week. If key CPI data comes out higher-than-expected on Tuesday, the Fed’s may continue the aggressive approach at raising interest rates to tackle the nation’s 40-year high inflation. The Dow Jones fell 0.9%, the S&P500 shed 0.73% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq closed the day down 0.7%.

Over in Europe, it was a green end to the week as investor optimism was boosted by reports of China’s reopening and positive economic outlook. Germany’s DAX added 0.74%, the French CAC rose 0.46% and, in the UK, the FTSE100 rose just 0.06%. Investors in the region also await key decisions out of the Bank of England’s next policy meeting.
