NEW YORK (Dow Jones) – Wall Street continued to recover from a five-day drought on Friday. The day before, prices rebounded significantly from the daily lows in late business. Soothing words from Fed Governor Christopher Waller, who raised expectations for rate hike by 100 basis points by the US Federal Reserve continued to exert influence. His statements were supported by new inflation data. After the recent inflation data exceeded expectations, import prices fell below, which eased fears about interest rates somewhat. In the previous days, it was the price data about market expectations that scared investors.
The Dow Jones index gained 2.1 percent. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite indices increased by 1.9%, respectively. and 1.8 percent On Nysa, the winners were a clear majority with 2,616 (Thursday: 860) titles, they had 619 (2,369) losses, while 117 (172) titles remained unchanged.
Economic data showed light and shadow, but the former prevailed. As retail sales in June increased much more than expected. Moreover, consumers were in better mood than forecast, although the expectations component was weak for the University of Michigan’s consumer sentiment. And in the New York City metropolitan area, the July Empire State Manufacturing Index showed that business activity was significantly better than predicted. Industrial production, which fell for the first time this year, was a disappointment.
“The risk of a recession has increased since the beginning of the year. If we don’t see signs of slowing consumption, it may not be as bad as investors fear, but if it does, it is evidence that the risk of a recession is materializing. ” market strategist Mike Bell of JP Morgan Asset Management warned. However, given the optimistic data on retail and consumer sentiment, investors ignored the warning.
The reporting period is gaining momentum
There were ups and downs in the company’s reports. Citigroup posted a positive sign, the rate jumped 13.3 percent. Provisions for impaired loans drove Citigroup’s profits down significantly in the second quarter. However, revenues increased significantly. Overall, Citigroup did better than analysts feared.
US Bancorp made less for the last quarter of the year – but more than analysts had predicted in consensus. Revenues were also higher than expected. As a result, the price increased by 5.4 percent. Competitor Wells Fargo disappointed as the US bank earned significantly less in the second quarter and fell short of expectations. Provisions for impaired loans also had a negative impact on Westkistenbank. However, these fell during the year and the price rose 6.2 percent.

Oil prices are going back up
