The major indexes are mixed on fears of higher interest rates ahead of the next Federal Reserve meeting — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.
November’s ISM Services data, which looks at manufacturer purchasing to gauge economic health, came in better than expected on Monday.
Following last week’s stronger-than-expected payrolls report, the ISM data stoked fears the Fed might hike rates higher and longer than expected to bring down inflation.
The markets expect a 0.50% rate hike following the Fed’s December meeting, but chances of a 0.75% rate hike are rising. There’s also some concern over how long the central bank’s rate hikes will need to continue.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why I believe stocks have more downside to go… which sector is most vulnerable… which sector is shaking off the bears… an update on momentum levels and why they’re key right now… the biggest report of the week and why it’s dangerous… plus an update on momentum levels and major support on the key indexes.
