US stocks were also higher as investors shrugged off recession fears and bid higher on their own tech stocks. Despite being among the hardest hit sectors in the first quarter of 2022 (with investors fearing the Fed’s rate hike plans could hamper the group), tech stocks led the market higher. Twitter Inc. gave the NASDAQ a boost after shares jumped more than 27% following news that Elon Musk bought a 9.2% passive stake in the company.
