Wall Street closed down tonight after a trading day marked by mixed trends, price increases, and declines across markets worldwide. The Nasdaq index fell by 0.4%, the Dow Jones by 0.1%, and the S&P 500 by 0.3%.

Shares that garnered interest today include Viking Therapeutics, which saw a 20% jump after reporting positive trial results for a weight loss drug. Krispy Kreme also experienced a 40% jump after announcing a distribution agreement with McDonald’s. On the other hand, stock UPS fell sharply after initially jumping, attributed to the company’s new strategy and forecast announcement.

Cocoa prices reached an all-time high due to issues in Ivory Coast and Ghana, affecting chocolate manufacturers who may pass on costs to consumers. Bitcoin traded at $69,700 per coin as Wall Street indices stabilized with slight increases throughout the day. Various stocks experienced jumps and stabilizations in trading throughout the day, while European stock markets closed with price increases.

Overall, the trading day reflected global economic factors and company announcements that influenced market trends across markets worldwide.
