U.S. Stocks 

Fundamental Analysis: 

The major U.S. stock indexes closed lower on Wednesday, 21st September 2022 in a tug-of-war during the session, falling sharply in the final 30 minutes as investors digested the U.S. Federal Reserve’s third mega-rate hike and its promise to keep raising rates in 2023 to fight inflation.

All three major indices fell more than 1.7%, with the Dow hitting its lowest closing level since 17th June, while the Nasdaq and S&P 500 closed at their lowest levels since July 1st and June 30th, respectively.

The Federal Reserve raised its policy rate target range for the third time by 75 basis points to 3.00%-3.25% at the end of its two-day meeting.

Rate hikes and anti-inflation efforts are also weighing on the U.S. economy, with the Fed’s latest forecast showing economic growth of just 0.2% this year, picking up to 1.2% in 2023.
