U.S. Stocks Gain For Third Day In A Row, Meta Drops Over 2%


U.S. Stocks Gain For Third Day In A Row, Meta Drops Over 2%

The U.S. stocks saw gains on Monday, marking the third straight trading day of increases across the major indices.  

The S&P 500 reached new intraday and closing highs for 2023.  

This week, market attention is directed towards inflation data like CPI and PPI, as well as the outcome of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy meeting. 

Wall Street is poised to review the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on Tuesday to gauge the continuity of inflationary trends.  

The Federal Reserve’s final decision for 2023 is expected to be released on Wednesday, with officials widely anticipated to maintain interest rates and disclose economic forecast summaries. 

Craig Erlam, an analyst at Oanda, stated, “The week started quietly, but much is anticipated in the coming days that could determine the market’s year-end and the start of 2024.  

Wednesday’s Fed decision is unlikely to be contentious, but subsequent forecasts, dot plots, and press conferences could potentially spark debate.
