U.S. Stocks 

Fundamental Analysis: 

The U.S. stock market’s S&P 500 index moved shakily on Monday, 25th July 2022, closing near flat as the market braced for an expected rate hike at this week’s Federal Reserve meeting and earnings reports from several growth stock giants.

The Nasdaq closed lower, with technology and non-essential consumer goods stocks in the S&P 500 leading declines among the major sectors.

Energy stocks rose along with oil prices.

The Federal Reserve is expected to announce a 75 basis point rate hike at the end of its two-day monetary policy meeting on Wednesday, effectively withdrawing all support for the U.S. economy during the pandemic.

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech following the resolution announcement will be key, with some investors concerned that an aggressive rate hike could send the U.S. economy into recession.

This week is expected to be the busiest week of the second-quarter earnings season, with about 170 S&P 500 component companies about to report results.

Microsoft and Alphabet, Google’s parent company, will report earnings on Tuesday, while Apple and Amazon are scheduled to report earnings on Thursday.

Two housing market indicators will be released today, the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index and new home sales data from the U.S. Department of Commerce.

The recently released housing market data suggests that the sector may be an early indicator of a cooling economy.
