The US stock market closed higher yesterday, partially rebounding from the previous day’s general selloff, but the speech by Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell and the ongoing debt ceiling negotiations dampened the gains.
Currently, the market is worried about three things: the Fed will eventually scale back its bond purchases; inflation will continue – Powell said that inflation will last longer than originally expected; and the debt ceiling issue that Congress is working hard to resolve.
Speaking at a European Central Bank forum, Powell expressed disappointment to see the bottlenecks and supply chain problems not getting better, which may keep inflation high for longer than expected.
