Weaker dollar boosts stock market sentiment 📈 Nasdaq nearing highs

Today's trading session brings a significant rebound in the stock market, supported by the weakening US dollar.

  • The upward trend accelerated after 3:00 PM BST, following the release of the University of Michigan's final consumer sentiment and inflation expectations. Market sentiment exceeded forecasts, while both short- and long-term inflation expectations unexpectedly fell to 3.3% and 3%, respectively.

  • The market interpreted today's data as another indication suggesting a still plausible soft landing scenario. Concurrently, we observe a marked retreat from the dollar and a decline in US Treasury yields. Dollar contracts (USDIDX) have nearly erased yesterday's gains. The dollar did not react to comments from Fed's Waller, who suggested that the neutral interest rate in the US might be higher and likely to increase.
