The Fed’s latest move to raise interest rates is expected to keep markets on edge in the coming week, which will be shortened by the holidays.
Wall Street will be closed on Monday as markets focus on Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech this week. Last week, the S&P 500 posted its worst one-week performance since March 2020, falling 5.8% following Monday’s drop into a bear market, marking the benchmark index’s 10th decline in the past 11 weeks.
The Federal Reserve raised its benchmark interest rate by 75 basis points last week, the largest increase in nearly 30 years. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell also hinted at more aggressive tightening measures ahead as policymakers ramp up efforts to fight inflation.
On Wall Street, the move sparked a wave of recession forecasts and sent markets into turmoil. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell nearly 5% last week, falling below 30,000 at one point. The Nasdaq closed higher on Friday, narrowing its losses, but still fell during the week, down about 5%.
