The US stock market gave up some ground yesterday, although there were signs that inflation had eased. Meanwhile, economic uncertainty and the growing possibility of a rise in the corporate tax rate hit investor sentiment and triggered a widespread sell-off.
Optimism faded throughout the session, reversing an initial rally following the Department of Labor’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) report.
All three major US stock indices closed lower, reminding people that September is usually a difficult month for the stock market. The emergence of the highly contagious Delta variant has exacerbated pessimism about the recovery of the economy from the global health crisis, and many now expect the stock market to pull back sharply before the end of 2021.
The lower-than-expected CPI reading in August supported Fed chairman Jerome Powell’s assertion that the sharp rise in inflation was temporary and calmed market fears that the Fed would start tightening monetary policy earlier than expected.
The Dow closed 0.84% lower, the S&P 500 was down 0.57%, and the Nasdaq had fallen 0.45%.
