US Stock Market Recovers

US Stock Market Recovers

Information is not investment advice

What happened?

US stocks ended sharply higher on Thursday, May 27, after a 7-week losing streak. The US500 surged 2%, and the US100 jumped 2.7%.

Retail solid earnings Thursday morning spurred markets early in the session, with such companies as Macy's, Dollar Tree (DLTR), and Dollar General (DG) raising their future forecasts.

Thursday's relief rally signals investors that despite the inflation headwinds that many companies face, consumers still have the money to spend. Moreover, a very strong labor market still underpins the overall economy. Overall, markets were hovering near oversold territory, and the rally resulted from decreasing recession fears.

Earlier, the hawkish Fed monetary policy caused investors' concerns. However, meeting minutes released on Wednesday indicated the majority of officials were strongly committed to rate hikes of 50 basis points at each of the next two meetings in June and July. So far this year, policymakers bumped short-term borrowing costs by 50 basis points earlier this month and 25 basis points in April. This information matched the investors' expectations, as the Fed sent a message they were serious about inflation without sending growth into a tailspin.

What to expect?

After the Federal Reserve increased the key rate by 0.75%, the inflation growth slowed down significantly. It signals the correctness of FOMC monetary policy, and the market feels it. If the economic data continues to please investors with its stability, the US stock market will have all chances for significant recovery, and an upcoming Amazon split only confirms it.

Bulls Are Coming Back

The US dollar index rose to 105.40 after the Fed’s 75-basis-point key rate hike, while the stock and the crypto markets fell. However, during the past few days, investors and traders returned to risk assets as they expect inflation growth to slow. Moreover, Jerome Powell, the head of the Federal Reserve, announced the Fed might start cutting the key rate by 2024, which is the most evident hint of an upcoming market reversal.
