Hi, dear traders! InstaForex analysts are ready to share their forecast for popular trading instruments and a review of the US stock market.

Wall Street had a volatile session on Wednesday. In the end, the benchmark stock indices won back previous losses and closed in the green.The Dow Jones rose 95 pips or 0.28%. The Nasdaq showed the strongest performance and gained 0.99%. The S&P 500 climbed 0.59% intraday to close at 4,027.
Today US markets are shut for the public holiday, but futures on the key stock indices retain optimism like yesterday. Futures on Wall Street indices traded higher in the pre-market. The S&P 500 is expected to trade in the corridor between 3,980 and 4,080.
Extending growth for two days straight, the S&P 500 was able to top the landmark level of 4,000 and close higher for the first time since September. 8 out of 11 sectors in the S&P 500 went up with retailers taking the lead.
American stocks traded mixed yesterday because the US Labor Department reported that initial unemployment claims in the weekly update rose by 17,000 to 240,000 last week, the highest level since August. At the same time, business activity in the US has been losing momentum for five months in a row, including November. Besides, consumer confidence improved and new home sales increased better than expected.
The benefactor of market optimism was the Fed minutes of the meeting in November. One phrase was enough to boost the risk appetite: most governors decided that the moderation in the pace of monetary tightening would be appropriate.
Some Fed policymakers advocate for a slower pace of rate hikes. This is exactly what market participants wanted to learn. Overwhelmed by optimism, stock investors took no notice of the next message. Some policymakers also stated that interest rates could be raised slightly higher than initially planned.
The rate-setting committee does not signal the dovish reversal, highly anticipated by Wall Street. Nevertheless, a potential transition to a slower pace of monetary tightening inspired stock investors.
In this context, yields of 10-year Treasuries slumped by a whopping 79 basis points below yields of two-year Treasuries. The inversion in the yield curve unseen since the crash of dotcoms in 2000 means that investors are braced for a serious economic downturn in the nearest months.
Nevertheless, a lot of US macroeconomic data remain upbeat despite sentiment on the bond market. The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta reported that the US GDP would expand by 4.3% in the fourth quarter. It means that the national economic output has been clicking into gear but now slowing down.
The stocks of companies with mega capitalization appreciated by 0.7-1% earlier today. Tesla shares surged 7.82% after Citigroup upgraded the stock rating of the e-vehicle manufacturer from the sell rank to the neutral rank.
The FedWatch tool now indicates that investors expect interest rates to stand at above 5% by May 2023. The market foresees the 75% chance that the US Fed is likely to raise interest rates by 50 basis points, not by 75 basis points.
Today the US stock market is thin because of Thanksgiving Day. Tomorrow, trading floors will be available shorter than usual. Amid the empty economic calendar, the stock market could retain the momentum.

While Wall Street is full of hope, the US dollar is turning sour. Its index shed another 0.25% and fell to an uncomfortable level of 105.8. Its intraday corridor is seen between 105.2 and 106.2.

The US dollar index which measures the greenback’s against a basket of six rival currencies is extending its weakness following a 1.1% slump on Wednesday. Now it is nailed at three-month lows. The index has tumbled 5.1% this month, being on track to the worst performance in the last 12 years.

Earlier this month, the US Fed increased the funds rate by 75 basis points for 4 times straight to 3.75%-4% in its combat against high inflation. As a result, the borrowing cost rose to the highest level since 2008.

The signs of weakness in the US latest economic data could assure the regulator to take cautious policy decisions. All in all, the Fed’s minutes do not encourage a further rally of the US dollar.
