Stocks Surge Ahead Of Microsoft, Alphabet Earnings, Bitcoin Eyes Sixth Day Of Gains: What's Driving Markets Tuesday?

Stocks enjoyed a positive midday trading session in New York, with all major indices in the green. Additionally, nine out of 11 S&P 500 sectors posted gains.

Traders are eagerly anticipating earnings reports from tech giants Alphabet, Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT), scheduled for release after the market closes. Simultaneously, they are keeping a watchful eye on developments in the Israel-Hamas war.

China’s pursuit of an expanded policy stimulus has also buoyed market sentiment. Furthermore, better-than-expected U.S. PMI data for October indicates expansion in both the services and manufacturing sectors.

Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) has surged for the sixth consecutive session, briefly surpassing $35,000 before retracing to $33,900 at the time of this writing.
