S&P 500 Index Closed Higher In Shaky Trading, H.K. Closed Down Collectively

U.S. Stocks 

Fundamental Analysis: 

The S&P 500 index, an indicator of U.S. stocks, closed higher in shaky trading on Friday, 18th November 2022 as gains in defense stocks overshadowed declines in energy stocks and investors ignored hawkish comments from Federal Reserve officials about interest rate hikes.

Boston Fed Bank President Collins said that with little evidence that price pressures are abating, the Fed may need to raise rates by another 75 basis points to keep inflation under control.

For the week, the S&P 500 fell 0.7%, retreating slightly after a strong month-long rally.

The previous rally was aided by weaker-than-expected inflation data, driving the perception that the Fed may soften its aggressive stance on rate hikes.

The Nasdaq fell 1.6% for the week, while the Dow was essentially flat.

Defensive stocks led gains among S&P 500 sectors, with utilities up 2%, real estate up 1.3% and health care up 1.2%.

Energy stocks fell 0.9% as oil prices retreated, weighed down by concerns about weakening demand and further increases in U.S. interest rates.
