The U.S. economic growth forecast was downgraded, and the three major stock indexes fell unilaterally


On Wednesday, due to concerns about inflation and slowing economic growth, the three major U.S. stock indexes crashed. Dow futures fell 203.6 points, or about 0.62%, to 32,451.00 points; S&P 500 futures fell 33.1 points, or about 0.81%, to 4,055.80 points; Nasdaq 100 futures were down 150.7 points, or about 1.2 percent, at 12,413.40. Target tumbled 24% due to the weaker-than-expected earnings report, bringing down retail stocks such as Walmart, Costco, and Macy's. In addition, large technology stocks all fell sharply, Apple and Meta fell by more than 5%, and Netflix and Amazon fell by more than 7%.

According to a new poll, 40% of poll participants believe the president's policies are responsible for high inflation. In addition, Biden won 44% of the support rate in this poll, up from 39% in the previous poll. The Biden administration is pushing for legislation to segregate client funds from those on cryptocurrency exchanges and ensure they are safe in the event of an exchange failure, according to people familiar with the matter, potentially limiting how the industry can operate.


Dow: The three major U.S. stock indexes fell unilaterally.

In the U.S. session, it touched an intraday high of $1,825 an ounce and then slightly corrected, and finally closed 0.1% at $1,816 an ounce. Currently, gold is hovering at a low level and is currently trading. Around $1814, continue to pay attention to the band callback of gold, and focus on the target position of 1836 above the range.


Crude oil: WTI crude oil fell below the $110 mark and finally closed down 3.95% at $109.09 per barrel; Brent crude finally closed down 3.10% at $109.22 per barrel.
