S&P 500 Rebounded Later In The Session, H.K. Large Technology Stocks Were Mixed

U.S. Stocks 

Fundamental Analysis: 

A late-day rally in U.S. stocks helped the S&P 500 close higher on Thursday, 1st September 2022, ending a previous four-day losing streak, as investors’ attention turned to the key U.S. jobs report due on Friday.

Stocks were down for most of the session.

Earlier data showed that U.S. initial jobless claims fell to the lowest level in two months last week, while layoffs fell in August, suggesting that the Federal Reserve has room to continue aggressive rate hikes to drive a slowdown in the labor market.

Investors are awaiting the monthly nonfarm payrolls report, due out on Friday, for more evidence on the labor market.

The S&P 500 reluctantly rebounded later in the session after hitting a low of 3903.65, close to what some analysts see as a strong support level of 3900.

The downtrend began on Friday after the S&P 500 index accumulated a decline of nearly 6% in the previous four trading days.

On that day, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said the Fed would raise rates aggressively to fight inflation even after raising rates by 75 basis points in a row, a message that has been echoed by other Fed officials in recent days.

Despite the gains, the tone of the market was defensive, with health care stocks up 1.65% and utilities up 1.42%, both leading the gains.

Other economic data showed further easing of price pressures and steady growth in U.S. manufacturing in August as employment and new orders picked up.

Traders expect a 73.1% chance of a third consecutive 75 basis point Fed rate hike in September and expect rates to peak at around 3.993% in March 2023.

The expected path of Fed rate hikes adds to concerns that the Fed could make a policy mistake and let interest rates get too high, sending the economy into recession, while inflation has shown signs of easing.

Investors have also become more concerned about corporate earnings in an environment of rising interest rates, an environment that has also spurred a rally in the dollar.

Packaged food maker Hormel fell 6.56% after the company lowered its full-year profit forecast.
