The S&P 500 and Nasdaq ended higher on Tuesday, with big growth shares rising after the previous day’s selloff as Treasury yields tumbled. Bank shares fell along with yields. The benchmark 10-year note yield dropped from more than a three-year high to below 3%.
The Dow also ended lower, and the day’s trading was choppy, with major indexes moving between gains and losses as investors were nervous ahead of the release of Wednesday’s U.S. consumer price index data and Thursday’s producer prices data.

Top Market Segment to Watch Out Today:
TESLA: Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc on Wednesday made its first exports from China since reopening its Shanghai factory on April 19, as a shipment of 4,767 cars left for Slovenia, the government-backed media outlet Shanghai Observer reported.
The Glovis Splendor vehicle carrier left port early on Wednesday, bound for the Slovenian port of Koper, according to the Shanghai-based news outlet. Tesla has also arranged for 4,100 cars to be shipped on Friday, it said, adding that the automaker aims to export 300,000 cars from Shanghai in 2022.
US: In the wake of the 50-basis-point interest rate hike by an increasingly hawkish Federal Reserve, markets have gyrated wildly ahead of this week’s U.S. economic data, which will be closely parsed for signs that inflation is peaking.
Price growth has soared to the highest level since the early 1980s due to the collision of a post-pandemic demand boom and a gummed up global supply chain, and has stoked fears that the Fed’s aggressive attempts to rein it in could lead the economy into recession.
The Labor Department’s jobs report on Friday provided the first potential sign of a plateau, with monthly wage growth decelerating to 0.3% from 0.5% and holding steady at 5.5% year-on-year.
Eurozone: The European Central Bank should raise interest rates from record lows in July but could already outline its rate expectations for the coming months at its June 9 meeting, ECB policymaker Madis Müller said.
With euro zone inflation at a record high 7.5%, nearly four times the ECB’s target, pressure is growing on the bank to claw back stimulus and several policymakers are pushing for faster “normalisation”, including the end of asset buys and rate hikes.
In the first step, bond purchases need to end in early July, as stipulated by the bank’s guidance, but bringing this move forward is also possible, according to Müller, who is Estonia’s central bank governor.
