US Stocks Tumble: Dow Falls 330 Points, Nasdaq Down 1%


US Stocks Tumble: Dow Falls 330 Points, Nasdaq Down 1%

On Thursday, US stocks closed lower, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling more than 330 points, marking its third consecutive decline.

Cloud computing giant Salesforce plummeted around 20%, its largest single-day drop in 20 years, due to poor performance and a bleak outlook.

The US first-quarter GDP fell short of expectations, raising concerns about economic growth. Market focus is now on the April PCE inflation data set to be released on Friday.

Legendary investor and Hussman Investment Trust president John Hussman recently warned in a report that the US stock market’s historical highs are reminiscent of a wild rebound but represent a bull market that will eventually crash.

Known for accurately predicting the 2000 and 2008 market crashes, Hussman reiterated that the US stock market could drop by as much as 70% in this cycle.

Ross Mayfield, an investment strategy analyst at Baird, noted that the 10-year US Treasury yield surpassed 4.6% for the first time in a month on Wednesday, significantly dampening investor sentiment.

The sharp rise in bond yields could be bad news for stock investors, as safer investments like treasury bonds and money market funds become more attractive, reducing the appetite for stock risk.
