Stock markets saw strong declines the day after the Fed decision as investors may have concluded that the Fed will nonetheless fight inflation in a determined manner with the so-called wealth effect at its disposal.

 

Yesterday's sell-off on Wall Street could have been very impressive, as the indices fell at a rate we haven't seen in two years, mainly due to technology companies. The Dow index lost more than 1,000 points and the Nasdaq Composite fell nearly 5 percent. - Both indexes posted their worst one-day declines since 2020. The S&P 500 Index also fell 3.56 percent, its second-worst day this year. Thursday's session erased Wednesday's strong gains after the Federal Reserve meeting. Technology stocks suffered the most: Tesla (-8.3 percent), Apple (-5.6 percent), Amazon (-7.6 percent), AMD (-5.6 percent) and Microsoft (-4.4 percent), where the outlook for earnings momentum may not be the best for the next few quarters.

US stocks failed to build on the offensive, losing all of the previous day's gains, leading to a stronger selloff for bitcoin compared to alternative cryptocurrencies. From the technical side, Bitcoin is trading near the support level, which runs through the lows of January, February and March. A formal signal to break the support will be considered a failure under the previous lows in the $38K area. The ability to develop a reversal to the offensive from these levels, on the contrary, will reinforce the importance of this moderate uptrend line.

Summary: Amazon causes poor investor sentiment. Apple shocks the market. Musk going after Coca-Cola next?? Amazon (AMZN) stock prices show improving investor confidence despite disappointing revenue forecasts. During post market trading yesterday, the AMZN share price fell by almost 10%. This fall comes after the tech giant made its earnings announcement, this was because the earnings missed investor forecasts. The slightly disappointing revenue in Q1 of Amazon came as a result, amongst other things, of a decrease in consumer spending online and a return to in-person-activities. Amazon attributed its disappointing earnings to the current adverse economic conditions partly coming from the Russia-Ukraine conflict and partly from the issues around supply chains. Their earnings increase is 37% lower (Q1 2022: 7%, Q1 2021: 44%) than this time last year and their EPS has fallen by 0.84 cents for the same time period.

Stock markets saw strong declines the day after the Fed decision as investors may have concluded that the Fed will nonetheless fight inflation in a determined manner with the so-called wealth effect at its disposal.   Yesterday's sell-off on Wall Street could have been very impressive, as the indices fell at a rate we haven't seen in two years, mainly due to technology companies. The Dow index lost more than 1,000 points and the Nasdaq Composite fell nearly 5 percent. - Both indexes posted their worst one-day declines since 2020.

Technology stocks suffered the most: Tesla (-8.3 percent), Apple (-5.6 percent), Amazon (-7.6 percent), AMD (-5.6 percent) and Microsoft (-4.4 percent), where the outlook for earnings momentum may not be the best for the next few quarters.   The sharp decline in stocks and entire indexes may also be part of the fight against inflation through the so-called wealth effect. Americans, more than half of whom may have exposure to the stock market, may consume less as their savings melt down in the stock market. Thus, this can have a deflationary effect by reducing demand pressures, which appears to be an additional mechanism for fighting inflation. Previously, with the wealth effect, central banks may want to drive current consumption, because it is different to spend income when the value of savings rises rapidly and when it falls rapidly, even though current income is not affected.   Returning to the markets, one also can't help but notice that it wasn't just stocks that were cheapening. Bond and cryptocurrency prices also fell. The yield on 10-year US bonds beat the 3 percent level, and BTC fell below $36,000 at one point. It seems that once again capital was returning to the USD, as its index approached the level of 104 points, the highest since 2002. Nervousness in the markets, therefore, seems to persist, and this will be compounded by today's publication of data from the US labor market at 14:30. It seems that the times when bad data was good for the markets, as they waited for the Fed to help, are over. Now, bad data can be perceived negatively, and good data positively. The consensus is for a reading of 385k. What will be the NFP? That is what we will find out in a few hours and could be the event of the day.   Daniel Kostecki, Director of the Polish branch of Conotoxia Ltd.
