U.S stocks Rallied! The Consumer Spending Improves?


U.S stocks rallied. The leading benchmark indexes gained more than 6% in a week as consumer expenditure and inflation statistics in the United States improved. Both the S&P 500 Index and the Nasdaq Composite Index gained ground, halting a seven-week losing run.

Consumer spending in the United States increased to 13924.80 USD Billion in the first quarter of 2022 from 13818.40 USD Billion in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Fed’s preferred measure of inflation fell from March to April, and market-based inflation expectations have fallen from their top, completely reversing this year’s increase.

However, according to data provided by Fact Set for the most recent earnings season, which just came to a close, companies included in the S&P 500 index posted an average profit rise of 9 % when compared to the same quarter one year earlier. Because of this result, the rate of growth slowed to its lowest point since the fourth quarter of the year 2020.

The European market gained ground as investors were more optimistic that inflation may be reaching its zenith. Central banks sent signals indicating that future hikes in interest rates are likely to be modest. 

The CAC 40 Index in France rose 3.67 %. The DAX Index in Germany rose 3.44 %. The FTSE MIB Index in Italy rose 2.25 %. The FTSE 100 Index in the United Kingdom increased by 2.65%.


The APAC benchmark indexes remain mixed in their directions. The indexes, Nifty50, AX-200, and Nikkei 225 were closed higher modestly. On the other hand, the indexes,  Kospi-100, Hang Seng, and Shanghai composite index were declined.  Chinese markets fell on concerns about slowing growth, which was worsened by the government’s zero-tolerance policy toward the coronavirus.
