U.S. Stock Market Sees Decline; Tesla Gains Nearly 3% 


U.S. Stock Market Shows Mixed Performance; Nasdaq Hits New High

The U.S. stock market closed lower on Tuesday, with both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 Index experiencing their third consecutive trading day of declines.  

The previous momentum of reaching new highs is gradually cooling off.  

This week, the market is focused on the PCE inflation index and the Federal Reserve’s interest rate cut prospects. 

Analysts at Bank of America released an optimistic research report, suggesting that the main theme of the U.S. stock market until 2030 will be an “epic long bull market.”  

The report states that the current long-term bull market in U.S. stocks is about to enter its 11th year, and more importantly, from a technical analysis perspective, the S&P 500 Index is expected to continue to rise strongly over the next few years, thereby fully extending the trend of the “epic long bull market.” 

Bank of America predicts that this round of “long bull market” is expected to continue until around 2030, and expects the S&P 500 Index to rise to 7000 points by the end of 2026.
