Wall Street recovers spectacularly, Dow Jones rises more than 500 points

Wall Street stocks rallied from 2022 lows in post-September 28 trading following the Bank of England's bond market intervention.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average bounced sharply from this year's low as the Bank of England (BoE) said it would temporarily buy £65 billion ($70.6 billion) of British government bonds. Perennial bonds, also known as backup bonds, are intended to stabilize financial markets. This is an amazing reversal as most other central banks are tightening monetary policy to curb inflation.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 548.75 points (1.88%) to 29,683.74. The S&P 500 index rose 71.75 points (1.97%) to 3,719.04, a day after recording a new bear market low. The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 222.13 points (2.05%), ending the session at 11,051.64.

The Dow and S&P 500 have experienced six consecutive days of declines, Wall Street's longest losing streak since the Covid-19 outbreak in February 2020. The Dow Jones is now 19.7% off its 52-week high, while the S&P 500 is 22.8% below its record. The Nasdaq index fell 31.8%.

Bond markets across the globe also eased following the BoE statement. Yields on 10-year US Treasuries fell 21 basis points to 3.74% after breaking above 4% for the first time since 2008, easing concerns that higher rates are stifling. economy.

“ The news caused volatility in risk assets as investors attempted to buy discount bonds from the BoE and potentially other central banks. As a result, bond yields fell, triggering a short-term rally in gold and equity markets,” said Fawad Razaqzada, market analyst at City Index in a note.

“The BoE intervention has given rise to speculation that other central banks could follow suit. Whether this happens or not remains to be seen, but traders are buying bonds first and then asking questions later,” Mr. Razaqzada said.

All 11 sectors on the S&P 500 index gained points, led by the energy group. Oil prices rose after US weekly crude stockpiles unexpectedly fell by 200,000 barrels.

Wall Street stocks rallied across the board. One notable exception is Apple, which fell about 1.3% after a Bloomberg report said the tech company was shedding plans to increase production of new iPhones due to lower-than-expected demand.

Some Wall Street analysts are concerned that investors haven't considered the decline in earnings and the impact of the Federal Reserve's interest rate hikes when valuing stocks. The fact that the S&P 500 index broke below previous lows is a sign that stocks will fall further.
