U.S. Stocks Slide As NVIDIA, AMD Plunge Over 2%


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

U.S. stocks experienced a decline on Monday, taking a temporary pause after recent consecutive gains.  

The rise in U.S. Treasury yields has put pressure on tech stocks.  

This week, the market’s focus is on Friday’s non-farm payroll data to further assess whether the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike cycle has ended. 

Despite Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s attempts to temper rate-cut expectations, investors remain convinced that the Fed has concluded its rate hikes.  

Powell stated that it is “too early” to expect policy easing and that U.S. monetary policy is evidently slowing the economy, with overnight rates entering a “restrictive range.” 

According to the FedWatch tool by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), the market anticipates a 60% probability of a rate cut before the March meeting, up from 21% just a week ago.
