The U.S. stocks, which had previously fallen for seven consecutive weeks, continued to rebound, and the month-end position adjustments of institutional investors may have boosted the stock market.
Last Friday, 27th May 2022, the S&P 500 Index rose by 2.5%, its biggest gain since May 4, recovering lost ground in May. In the whole week, it was up by 6.6%, its biggest one-week gain since November 2020. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq 100 Index rose by 3.3%, up more than 7% for the week.
The U.S. consumer confidence deteriorated further to a 10-year low at the end of May, as mounting inflation concerns dimmed the economic outlook.
Another report showed that U.S. inflation-adjusted consumer spending rose the most in three months in April, indicating that the U.S. public kept spending firm by reducing savings in the face of continued price pressures.
The Bank of America report, citing EPFR data, said global equity funds made the largest inflows in 10 weeks, led by U.S. equity funds due to fears that hawkish central banks will push the economy into recession.
The market has been very volatile so far this year, and the market remains divided on whether the stock market has bottomed out.
