Wall Street is intact
On Wednesday, Wall Street's key indexes stood still because a Qualcomm-led soar in chipmakers was compensated by a dive in healthcare shares for the second straight trading marathon, although quarterly gains came in largely positive.

Data revealed that the Chinese economy tacked on at a steady 6.4% tempo for the first quarter, confounded hopes for a further deceleration. It helped chipmakers, getting a huge portion of their profit from China, to tack on. As for the Philadelphia chip index, it managed to rally by about 1.45%.
