The U.S. stock market ended higher on Wednesday, 6 October 2021, as investors grew more optimistic that congressional Democrats and Republicans could reach a deal to avert a government debt default.
Top U.S. Senate Republican Mitch McConnell said his party would support an extension of the federal debt ceiling into December. McConnell made some dovish comments about temporarily extending the debt ceiling, which will be interpreted in the short term as positive. McConnell’s offer could provide a solution to a month-long standoff between President Joe Biden’s Democrats and McConnell’s Republicans, who had been expected on Wednesday, 6 October 2021, to block a third attempt by Senate Democrats to raise the USD28.4 trillion debt ceiling.
Meanwhile, stocks were lower for much of the session after a strong showing of private jobs in September fueled bets that the Federal Reserve could start reining in monetary stimulus soon.
On the other hand, the ADP National Employment Report showed private payrolls increased by 568,000 jobs last month. Economists had forecast a rise of 428,000 jobs. Positive labor market data comes with the implication that the Fed can tighten policy at a quicker pace. But the fact that hiring is up should not be discounted — it is definitely a good thing in terms of recovery.
