Wall Street sees mixed trend as Intel drops 7%

Financial reviews cover a wide range of information, including current reports, trends, indices, stock prices, bonds, foreign exchange, commodities, and analyst recommendations. At 16:30 on Wall Street, there were slight declines at the opening with the Nasdaq down 0.4%, the S&P 500 off 0.1%, and the Dow Jones trading around base levels.

In a recent interview with CNBC, the president of the Atlanta Fed, Rafael Bostic stated that he believes interest rate cuts in the US should begin later this year. He pointed to the strong growth of the American economy, the recovery in supply chains, and the strong labor market as factors that will lead to a decrease in inflation. Bostic predicted that the Fed’s first interest rate cut may not happen until the end of 2024.

In Europe, inflation decreased in March to 2.4%, below expectations with core inflation falling from 3.1% to 2.9%. Meanwhile, stocks markets in Europe and Asia were mixed with slight declines reported in some indices. The price of gold reached record highs due to supply disruptions and geopolitical tensions prompting speculation that silver prices may also rise significantly due to increased demand for solar panels.

There were updates on various companies worldwide including Intel reporting an operational loss in its production division and Disney shareholders voting on board changes while Tesla reported a decline in car deliveries in Q1. In commodities markets oil prices surged six months highs due to supply disruptions and geopolitical tensions while other markets remained stable despite differing opinions on interest rates cuts or market trends from analysts worldwide who closely monitor economic data and corporate developments to inform their investment decisions.
