U.S. Stocks See Mix Close As NVIDIA Up Over 2% 


U.S. Stocks Close Mix, Pinduoduo Overtakes Alibaba In Market Value

The U.S. stocks ended with mixed results on Tuesday, pausing momentarily after recent consecutive gains.  

A rise in U.S. Treasury bond yields has created pressure on tech stocks. This week, all eyes are on Friday’s non-farm employment data to assess if the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike cycle is concluding. 

Speculation over the Fed’s potential rate cut next year intensified as the labor market further slowed down, leading to a resurgence in U.S. Treasury bond prices. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield, which briefly exceeded 5% in October, dropped below 4.2% on Tuesday following reports of record-low job vacancies since 2021. 

In a week dominated by labor market data, the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) lagged behind all estimates in Bloomberg’s economist survey. These figures, released days before the crucial jobs report, anticipate an increase of 187,000 jobs in November. 

BMO Capital Markets analyst Ian Lyngen noted, “Overall, the labor data update is the dominant factor. US Treasuries have continued their bullish price trend, with markets eagerly awaiting tomorrow’s ADP report.”
