Today’s Stock Market Indicators
What’s happened in the stock market last week is continuation of a trend away from speculative growth stocks, many of them tech companies to value stocks which typically exist on the Dow Jones indexes.
The Dow Jones, rose last week while the S&P, NASDAQ and Russell 2000 had difficulty maintaining prices. All indexes plunged on the 19th as inflation, jobless claims, and Fed rumor mongering via the media took the spotlight. By week’s end the indexes had recovered.
Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies have been the most volatility investment. Is it the markets and fear of risk, or did Elon Musk’s energy waste comments really hit crypto hard? China is reinforcing its ban on cryptocurrency for sales transactions. That’s not good news for the crypto crowd, however China is likely pushing for their own cryptocurrency which they hopemight become the world standard (with a backdoor perhaps?)
ARK investment Funds Cathie Wood is still sticking her neck out with a $500,000 forecast for Bitcoin. She’s never really explained the macroeconomic, banking, and transactional underpinning’s of Bitcoin rise to dominance. Given the volatility, not many other investors feel as confident of its long term price growth.
How do you feel about Bitcoin? Are there alternatives? Ethereum has plunged too.
According to MarketWatch, stocks fell Tuesday against as “upbeat corporate results and expectations for a booming economic expansion in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic competed with worries about lofty valuations and signs of accelerating inflationary pressures.” And the correction continues. This is quieter than expected, so is the real “correction event” or will all of this blow away, given how strong earnings reports are?
