U.S. Stock Market Mixed As Tech Giants Led The Decline


U.S. Stock Market Mixed As Tech Giants Led The Decline

The U.S. stock market exhibited mixed movements on Friday, accompanied by subdued trading.  

All three major indices recorded their fourth consecutive week of gains. Market attention remains on retailers’ holiday sales performance. 

Amidst the continuous rise in the U.S. stock market, U.S. Treasury yields hit multi-month lows this week.  

Investors interpreted this as a sign of cooling inflation, speculating that the Federal Reserve has completed its rate hikes, leading to a decline in bond yields. 

Philip Maldia Madsen, a macro strategist at Nordea, commented, “The issue lies in the fact that if economic growth continues to remain stable in the current policy rate environment, it’s almost certain to say that monetary policy isn’t restricting the economy, implying the Fed has no reason to cut rates.”
