U.S. Stocks Rise, Nasdaq Up 1.6% As Tech Sector Leads Gains


U.S. Stocks Mixed, Nasdaq Down 2%, Nvidia's 10% Plunge Drags Tech Lower

U.S. stocks ended higher on Tuesday, with the Nasdaq increasing by nearly 1.6% and major indices rising for the second consecutive trading day.  

Market attention this week is focused on numerous earnings reports, including those from several tech giants, as well as the March PCE inflation index.  

Tuesday’s release of a weak Manufacturing PMI index led to market optimism that it might prompt the Federal Reserve to accelerate rate cuts. 

Earnings reports are a focal point for investors this week, with about 180 S&P 500 companies, representing over 40% of the index’s market value, scheduled to announce their results. 

Citigroup strategists Mihir Tirodkar and Beata Manthey noted, “We remain focused on this earnings season, which could refocus investors on solid fundamentals. We view the recent pullback as a buying opportunity.”

Hong Kong Stock Market

Fundamental Analysis: 

Hong Kong’s three major indices continued their upward trend for the third consecutive day.  

The tech sector saw substantial gains, with Bilibili rising nearly 7%, Alibaba and JD.com over 3%, and Xiaomi and Meituan over 2%.

In recent news, the China Securities Regulatory Commission introduced five measures favorable to Hong Kong, supporting the performance of Hong Kong stocks.
