Financial Associated Press, October 4 (Editor Zhao Hao) U.S. stocks opened higher and closed higher on Monday (October 3), with the three major indexes collectively rising more than 2%.
As of the close, the Dow Jones index rose 2.66%, the largest one-day gain since June 24 this year, at 29,490.89 points; the S&P 500 rose 2.59%, the best performance since July 27, at 3,678.43 points; The Starq rose 2.27% to 10,815.43.
After all three major stock indexes closed at their lowest levels since 2020 on Friday, today’s notable rebound in stocks has given investors a sigh of relief from extreme pessimism. Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA, said Monday’s gains were not surprising given how oversold the market was.
The “good start” in the fourth quarter brought some optimism to the participants in the US stock market. Stovall pointed out that, based on history, the market has a chance to rebound at the end of the year, because US stocks tend to perform relatively strongly in mid-term election years.
Stovall said that the S&P fell by more than 9% last month, and some of the latest US economic indicators were also weaker than expected. People may now speculate that “hey, maybe the Fed will not be so aggressive.” Therefore, today can see “global “Asset Pricing Anchor” – U.S. Treasury yields and the U.S. dollar fell together.
Tavis McCourt, equity strategist at Raymond James, said that the market today is simple, 10-year Treasury yields rise, and stocks may remain under pressure; but as long as Treasury yields fall, stocks rise.
