    Wall Street ended Friday -- the final day of the month and the quarter -- on another down note, with the main stock indexes posting their third straight quarterly loss for the first time since the Great Recession. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 500 points for a loss of 1.7 percent on the day, marking a decline of 8.8 percent for the month of September, 6.6 percent for the quarter, and 21 percent since the start of the year. The market's dismal recent performance follows historically high inflation, rapidly rising interest rates, and fears that the economy could soon...

    NY Post ^ | 09/23/2022 | Ariel Zilber
    Wall Street’s massive selloff on Friday plunged the Dow into a bear market as investors appear resigned to the fact that the Fed has abandoned hopes for a “soft landing” and will continue to aggressively raise interest rates to fight inflation — even if it means a deeper recession. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 700 points, while the S&P 500 dropped nearly 100, shedding 2.65% from its pre-market starting point. The tech-dominated Nasdaq Composite plunged more than 300 points, or 2.75%. The Dow is now 20% off its all-time high — which would officially place it in...
  • U.S. Stocks Plummet Amid Worse Than Expected Inflation Data

    Again, it’s difficult to say with a high degree of certainty, but stock investors will likely experience a bumpy ride over the next 6-12 months. The timing is possibly the most uncertain element here. Higher interest rates and a smaller money supply will reduce loan growth and economic activity. No question on that. However, will the Fed go too far and push the economy into recession? Globally, most of the world’s central banks are on a similar path as the U.S. Federal Reserve. For example, Europe, the U.K., and India are all raising interest rates. China, however, is not. Europe...
  • Dow Plunges 900 Points After Hotter Than Expected Inflation Report

    09/13/2022 11:11:45 AM PDT · by Signalman · 69 replies ^ | 9/13/2022 | Madelyn Halpert
    Stocks tumbled Tuesday after an August inflation report showed higher consumer prices than expected, as investors worry the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates even higher to combat rising prices. Inflation reached a four-decade high of 8.5% in July and 9.1% in June, leading the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates even more to combat surging prices. Core inflation, which does not include volatile food and energy prices, increased 0.6% on a monthly basis in August, twice as much as economists predicted and double July’s 0.3% rise, though gas prices fell from record highs this summer.

    Despite the stock market's recent sell-off, sticking to your investment plan is still the best strategy. There's evidence that the market may bounce soon in what is known as a relief rally. It's important to remember that even though this year has been tough, the stock market always rebounds eventually. The market has been tough this year. Really tough. Year-to-date, the S&P 500 is in correction territory, down over 12%, and the NASDAQ? Forget about it. It's in a bear market, down over 20%. You don't even want to know how much some of last year's high-flyers are down. Let's...
