Dow Falls Over 400 Points as Nvidia Reaches New High

Dow Falls Over 400 Points as Nvidia Reaches New High

US markets closed lower on Wednesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropping more than 410 points. Rising Treasury yields pressured the indices, with the 10-year yield climbing for the second consecutive day, surpassing 4.6%.

Despite Nvidia hitting a new all-time high, the broader market remained in decline. Investors continued to focus on corporate earnings and the timing and extent of potential Federal Reserve rate cuts.

Nvidia’s stock surged about 20% over three days following its earnings report, standing out among major tech stocks. In contrast, Tesla, Alphabet, Microsoft, and Meta continued to decline.

Julius Baer Group’s equity strategist Leonardo Pellandini commented, “The risk of rising long-term bond yields is eroding stock valuations, and short-term pressure seems inevitable. However, with easing inflation expectations and upcoming rate cuts, we believe the market can continue to rise.”
