Top Market Segment to Watch Out Today:
Tesla: Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) delivered 343,830 electric vehicles (EVs) in Q3, the company announced Sunday. During the year-ago quarter, Tesla delivered 254,695 vehicles, or growth of 35%.
Q3 deliveries were lower than expected as analysts were looking for 359,162 vehicle deliveries, according to Refinitiv. The Bloomberg consensus stood at 357,938 while estimates compiled by Street Account showed that analysts were expecting Tesla to report deliveries of 364,660 cars.
US: Several Fed policymakers are due to make appearances during the week, including New York Fed President John Williams, Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans, San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly, and Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester.
Investors are assessing the likelihood of another 75 basis-point rate hike at the Fed’s November meeting. Recent comments by Fed officials have indicated that they want to see clear evidence of slowing inflation before they let up on the policy tightening.
The Fed’s policy rate is now in the 3.00%-3.25% range, a full 3 percentage points higher than where it was at the start of 2022, and officials have penciled in more rate rises later this year and in 2023.
Euro Zone: Russian manufacturing activity grew at its fastest rate in 3-1/2 years in September, driven by rises in production, new orders and client demand, a business survey showed on Monday, though Western sanctions continued to weigh on export business.
The S&P Global (NYSE:SPGI) Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose in September to 52.0 from 51.7 in the previous month, climbing higher above the 50.0 mark that separates expansion from contraction to its highest point since March 2019.
“Client demand was focused on domestic customers, however, as new export orders declined steeply,” S&P Global said in a monthly survey. “The decrease in foreign client demand was attributed to the loss of customers and the impact of sanctions.”
The United States and European Union last week promised to impose more sanctions on Moscow after Russia staged referendums in four Ukrainian regions and later declared that it was annexing them.
