U.S. Stocks 

Fundamental Analysis: 

The three major U.S. stock indexes closed lower on Tuesday, 31st May 2022, after last week’s surge, as volatile oil markets continued to bring surging inflation into focus, while investors reacted to a hawkish statement from an official at the U.S. Federal Reserve.  

A representative of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) said some OPEC members are considering temporarily excluding Russia from the oil production deal as Western sanctions have hit Russia’s ability to increase production. 

Subsequently, the S&P energy stocks, which had earlier outperformed, fell. Federal Reserve policy is also at the forefront of investors’ concerns. President Joe Biden met with Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Tuesday to discuss the historic inflation that is emptying Americans’ wallets.  

Biden said before the meeting, inflation control is his “top priority”.  

Fed Governor Waller said Monday, 30th May 2022 that the Fed should be prepared to raise rates by 50 basis points at each future meeting until inflation is firmly under control.
