US market starts the week with losses
US stocks fell sharply on Monday to start the week, led by losses in tech stocks as investors braced for the start of earnings season and new inflation data to be released on Wednesday, according to Cesar. Romero, Head of Research at Renta4 SAB.
Thus, the Nasdaq Composite lost 2.3% and the S&P 500 fell 1.2%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 160 points, or 0.5%.
“Monday’s moves follow a bullish week for stocks in which all three benchmarks posted weekly gains despite closing flat after last Friday’s jobs report,” Romero explains.
Meanwhile, the euro fell lower, approaching parity with the US dollar. The currency fell as much as 1.3% to $1.0057, the lowest level in two decades, as investors considered the possibility that an energy crisis could push the European economy into a recession.
