In the months that will follow the pause in tightening monetary policy, Bank of America’s analysts predict cooling inflation and a mild recession.

The Nasdaq Composite had seen some of the world’s biggest boosts of 1.28% in three major indexes as stocks on Wall Street closed higher on Wednesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose by 1.24%, and the S&P 500 by 1.19%.

The Kosdaq gained 0.2% to nearly 835.89 and the Kospi gained 0.83% to 2,515.4 in South Korea. As the country’s rate of unemployment came in at 3.7% in April, higher than the 3.5% expected by economists, stocks in Australia also increased, with the S&P/ASX 200 deteriorating by 0.52% and ending the day at 7,236.8.
