US Stocks Edge Up, Nvidia Extends New High

US stocks closed slightly higher on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones rising. WTI crude futures fell for the fifth consecutive trading day.

April’s US factory orders exceeded expectations, and job openings hit their lowest level in over three years, leading to speculation that the Federal Reserve may accelerate its rate cuts.

This week, the market’s primary focus is on the May nonfarm payroll report due on Friday.

Wall Street is closely watching the upcoming May nonfarm payroll report on Friday. Investors are hoping for a labor market that is weak enough to prompt the central bank to cut rates, but not so weak as to raise fears of a potential economic recession.

Megan Horneman, Chief Investment Officer at Verdence Capital Advisors, commented, “The market is currently searching for a catalyst. One day, bad news will actually be bad news.”
