S&P 500 (SPY) Report – 07/27/23

Good morning traders! 

The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading above yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it… 

Stock futures trade higher Thursday after the Dow Jones Industrial Average achieved its best winning streak since 1987. The stock market continues its bullish momentum, with significant earnings releases from Big Tech companies and a quarter-point hike from the Federal Reserve. Chair Jerome Powell’s remarks suggested that the central bank may hold rates steady at these levels and maintain a data-dependent approach. The Federal Reserve will meet again in September after reviewing new inflation and employment data.

Wharton School’s Jeremy Siegel expressed positive sentiments about the market’s performance, noting that the previously concerning high interest rates seem to have a lesser negative impact now, and Powell’s approach to consider both sides of the equation is viewed positively by investors.

Furthermore, the latest GDP report comes in better than expected for the second quarter. The U.S. economy grew by 2.4% in the second quarter, beating expectations. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected the economy grew by 2% in the second quarter. This is the latest piece of data pointing toward a resilient economy, not one going into a recession.
