The U.S. stock market experienced a significant decline on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones falling nearly 400 points, marking its largest single-day drop since March and the first time it closed below the 200-day moving average since May.
The S&P 500 Index also closed below 4300 points for the first time since June 9th.
Concerns about the drop in U.S. consumer confidence in September have sparked worries about the U.S. economic situation. The market remains vigilant about the potential impact of a major strike by auto workers and the risk of a government shutdown.
One of the catalysts driving the decline in the U.S. stock market in September is the Federal Reserve’s warning that next year’s interest rate cuts will be modest, and it plans to maintain higher interest rates for a longer period. The Fed’s tightening stance has pushed the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury bonds to its lowest level since 2007.
Amazon experienced a drop of more than 4% as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) initiated a high-profile antitrust lawsuit against the e-commerce giant, alleging that it monopolized online market services by reducing the quality of online shopping and charging excessive fees to sellers.
Morgan Stanley noted that Nvidia’s monthly decline reached a nearly one-year extreme, presenting a buying opportunity. The institution stated in a report that concerns about the sustainability of demand for Nvidia’s artificial intelligence (AI) chips would soon be dispelled by comments from its management or financial performance. This makes the 14% drop in Nvidia’s stock price in September an excellent buying opportunity.
