Market Analysis

  • Stocks End Winning Streak as Major Indicators Retreat: The winning streak for stocks ends as major indicators close lower.

Growth stocks outperform value shares, and large caps fare better than small caps.

Economic Highlights

  • UK Inflation Surges, BoE Raises Rates: UK inflation remains persistently high at 8.7% YoY, defying expectations and leading the Bank of England to implement a larger-than-expected interest rate hike of 50 basis points, raising the rate to 5%.
  • China’s Rate Cut Supports Growth: The People’s Bank of China implements a rate cut, lowering the primary loan rate by 10 basis points.
