Wall Street bounced back

Wall Street Main indices traded in a mixed fashion on Thursday due to a lower-than-expected PPI report.

. Wall Street Main Indicators traded in mixed fashion this Thursday, despite declining technology stocks. The main reason for this mixed data is the previous session announcement by the Fed. Unlike the March projection of three quarter-percentage-point reductions, the Fed decided only to have one rate cut this year. This likely means interest rate cuts will also last for the next year. which was the first market forecast by Goldman Sachs.

May data were also mixed this year; the last week, unemployment claims in the U.S. increased, signaling a deep problem in the labor sector, particularly transportation. Rapport says that last week, jobless cases were the highest number the U.S. labor market has seen in the past 10 months. As for producer prices, the report shows an unexpected decline in its month-to-month percentage, likely the likelihood of a September interest rate cut and probably the last interest cut this year. According to the labor department, the practiced index PPI in May fell by 0.2%, lower than analysts’ expectations. On a yearly basis, the PPI rose by 2.2%, slightly above the Fed’s 2% annual inflation target.

However, it’s too late to decide; at least, that’s what most top marketers see and believe.

UBS Global Research anticipates a rate cut in December, while Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley maintain expectations for the first cut in September. In the end, the final decision will be made based on several factors and reports, including inflation and the labor market. Larry Tentarelli of the Blue Chip Daily Trend Report noted positive news from the tech sector and on inflation. Larry predicted near-term consolidation and a strong long-term uptrend. Yan Detrick, chief market strategist at Carson Group in Omaha, Nebraska, shared his thoughts on this week’s news and said, “After solid gains, markets are kind of taking a pause after the big news day yesterday, and that’s not a bad thing.” Yan added, “We call this the calm after the storm—we’re consolidating some of the really big gains we’ve seen in the first half of June.

Meanwhile, in the U.S. stock market, Wall Street gains were mixed with the S&P and Nasdaq, raising the Dow and putting it on the decline. If S&P and Nasdaq close this session with gains, it will be their fourth consecutive day of gains, which would make it one of the best trading weeks this week in terms of gains.

For now, the S&P 500 benchmark is up by 0.21% to 5,432.90 basis points, while the tech-heavy composite is up by 0.33% to 17.655.90 basis points. While the Dow Jones industrial average declined by 0.1% to 38.646.80 basis points, moving the market to bind, the U.S. Treasury yields declined to their lowest level since last April as investors are still digesting the data and their reconsolidation about the interest rate cuts expectations.

Oil market prices traded lower this Thursday due to supply-outstanding demand issues and global supply chain concerns. The West Texas crude oil traded lower by 0.75%, while Brent crude oil was down by 0.83%.
