Wall Street Today | Slow Day But Steady Sector Gains
The market opened soft and traded lower on Monday, but investors found positives in some sectors, such as Bitcoin, SPAC mergers, and general meme stocks.
On preliminary closing data, the $S&P 500 Index pulled back 0.31%. The $Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.41%, and the $Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.27%.
Treasuries climbed, and the $U.S. 10-Year Treasury Notes yield rose 1.17% to 4.24.
The market hit all-time highs last week after FOMC said rates would not change, and shed light on this year's rate cuts. The $S&P 500 Index climbed 2.29% last week and added three all-time high closes. The $Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 2.25%, and the $Nasdaq Composite Index fell 2.99% last week.
FedSpeak Points to Risks Pairing Rate Cut Possibilities
The Federal Reserve is weighing the risks of too-high inflation and a loosening labor market more evenly today, according to Federal Reserve Gov. Lisa Cook, suggesting that interest rates may come down soon.
In a lecture at Harvard University on Monday morning, Cook said it isn't time to cut yet, but the balance between the Fed's inflation and employment goals is more balanced today. Cook is a voting member of the Federal Open Market Committee, the Fed's policymaking arm, and has served on the Fed's Board of Governors since May 2022.
"Following a period of unusually high inflation and rapid monetary-policy tightening, inflation has fallen considerably while the labor market has remained strong," Cook said. Chicago Federal Reserve President Austan Goolsbee also spoke Monday about his new expectation of three quarter-point interest rate cuts this year.
In an interview on Yahoo Finance, Goolsbee wouldn't discuss when the Fed might start cutting rates. He said he didn't want to discuss individual meetings. "I don't like ever tying our hands or signaling that we've made up our minds," he said.
