Today’s NY Dow continues to rise to +91.7 dollars. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq closed down $171.5. AI and tech stocks have taken a breather after last week’s big gains, and investors appear to be adjusting their positions ahead of next week’s US CPI and FOMC.
At this point, expectations for a pause in June interest rate hikes have receded from around 76% to around 66%. The market generally expects next week’s FOMC to keep interest rates on hold, but expects another 0.25 percentage point rate hike in July.
Prominent US investor Stanley Druckenmiller said at a Bloomberg investment conference that he still expects a hard landing in which inflation remains high, and that the impact of higher interest rates is still part of the outlook for the US economy. He pointed out that it does not appear in the economic sector of the country.
Regarding the AI field, which is overheated, he said, “Unlike virtual currency, AI is real. It may be as innovative as the Internet.” is a stock I’d like to hold for at least two to three years.”
Druckenmiller is known as the right-hand man of billionaire George Soros and founder of the $12 billion hedge fund Duquesne Capital. In 2020, he revealed that he owns Bitcoin, which drew a lot of attention from the Web3 community.
