Tech Stocks Weigh on Nasdaq; Nvidia Down 6.7%


Tech Stocks Weigh on Nasdaq; Nvidia Down 6.7%

US markets closed mixed on Monday, with the Dow rising 260 points. Nvidia plunged 6.7%, dragging the Nasdaq lower.

This week, investors are focused on the Fed’s preferred inflation measure, the PCE data, and earnings reports from FedEx and Micron. Chicago Fed President Austan Goolsbee mentioned that slowing inflation data could open the door to more accommodative policies.

Signs of market fatigue are emerging, especially with Nvidia facing continuous sell-offs. Nvidia fell 6.7% on Monday, marking its third consecutive day of significant losses. The stock has dropped over 16% from its recent peak, entering a correction phase.

Last week, Nvidia briefly surpassed Microsoft to become the most valuable company in the US stock market, but has since retreated.

Katie Nixon, Chief Investment Officer at Northern Trust Wealth Management, commented on Nvidia: “After an extreme price surge, the stock might hit some speed bumps ahead. This isn’t due to concerns about the fundamentals of the AI giant, but rather because the stock’s rapid rise has made the market more cautious.”
