Stocks Mixed as Nasdaq, S&P 500 Soar to Record Highs


Stocks Mixed as Nasdaq, S&P 500 Soar to Record Highs

US stocks closed mixed on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both setting new record highs. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell stated that inflation remains above the 2% target, indicating that it’s too early to ease monetary policy significantly. However, he warned that keeping rates high for too long could jeopardize economic growth. The market is anticipating key inflation data and major financial reports later this week.

In his testimony before Congress, Powell expressed concerns about maintaining high interest rates for an extended period, fearing it might harm economic growth. Morgan Stanley’s Chief Equity Strategist, Michael Wilson, advised investors to prepare for a potential market correction due to uncertainties surrounding US politics, corporate earnings, and Fed policy.
