Wall Street records the largest decline in the last month on inflation fears – Stock Exchange

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index rose 0.82% to 4,646.71 points. This is after Monday, during the session, after I set the highest value ever, at 4,714.92 points.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 0.66% to 36,079.94 points. In the first session of the week, it touched 36565.73 points for the first time in its history.

On the other hand, the Nasdaq Technology Index decreased by 1.66% to settle at the level of 15,622.70 points. And in intraday trading on Friday, it reached an all-time high at 16,053.39 points.

Interest rates contributed to the higher-than-expected declines in the 30-year Treasury auction. Two-year yields also rose after inflation was reported to have risen in October at the highest annual rate since 1990 – renewing fears that the Federal Reserve will end up raising key interest rates sooner than expected in the year.

Only the banking sector has benefited from higher interest rates on debt.

The Nasdaq index led the declines in today’s session due to the fact that its higher-value stocks are more susceptible to the impact of inflation.

The CPI rose 6.2% in October, compared to the same month last year, beating expectations of 5.9%.

In addition to the eventual rise in monetary policy rates earlier than expected, the continued rise in inflation may also force the Federal Reserve to accelerate the gradual withdrawal of economic stimulus – the so-called “taper”.
