S&P 500 Closing At Its Highest Level In Two And A Half Months, H.K. Stocks Moved Shakily

U.S. Stocks 

Fundamental Analysis: 

U.S. stocks rallied on Tuesday, 22nd November 2022, with the S&P 500 closing at its highest level in two and a half months, as Best Buy’s sales forecast allayed fears that high inflation would lead to dismal results during the holiday shopping season, while a rebound in oil prices helped push energy stocks higher.

Retailer Best Buy was the best-performing S&P 500 component, jumping 12.78% after the company forecast a smaller annual sales decline than previously announced and said it believes increased deals and discounts will attract more customers.

Best Buy’s rise helped boost the S&P 500 retail stock index by 1.21%.

The S&P 500 closed at its highest level since 12th September 2022.

Support also came from the energy sector, which climbed 3.18% after falling in the previous two sessions, as Saudi Arabia said OPEC+ was sticking to production cuts, countering Monday’s report that the alliance was considering increasing output, which at one point sent crude prices sharply lower.

OPEC+ is a coalition of oil-producing countries formed by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies, including Russia.

Trading was muted on Tuesday and volume is likely to decrease further on Thursday ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, with U.S. stocks set to close at noon on Friday.

Volume on U.S. exchanges was 9.45 billion shares, compared with an average of 11.75 billion shares traded over the past 20 trading days.
