- Barclays analyst: Both higher and lower interest rates could lead to a decline in the US stock market.
Barclays analysts warned that the US stock market could decline regardless of the direction of interest rates. The stock market is facing a difficult situation, depending on whether inflation or economic growth first forces central banks to take action. Persistent inflation will drive higher interest rates (as in the pre-1991 era), which is unfavorable for stock valuations. However, if the potential catalyst is a growth shock, such as an economic recession, then lower interest rates will also bring downward pressure to the stock market.
- Analyst: The US government's avoidance of a shutdown does not have as strong a boost to the stock market as imagined.
Adam Crisa, founder of Vital Knowledge, said, "The government shutdown did not create as much anxiety, so there should not be a sustained rebound just because the shutdown was avoided. However, the upcoming employment and inflation data will be released as planned, and if these data align with the recent cooling trend, it will help boost the stock market."
