This occurred as the US Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 25 basis points, which was as expected by the market. However, the Central Bank did not explicitly state its “expectations” regarding the need for further rate hikes. Instead, it indicated that it would keep a close watch on upcoming data to assess whether further rate hikes “may be appropriate.”

DOW JONES chart on 4 May 2023

On Wednesday, US stocks relinquished their gains and closed lower, following remarks made by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell that raised concerns among investors regarding the central bank’s next steps to increase interest rates.

After the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point as expected and suggested a possible temporary pause in further interest-raising measures, stock indices initially held onto their gains. However, during a press conference after the statement was released, Powell stated that the Fed still views inflation as too high, and that it is premature to conclude that the cycle of rate hikes has ended.

The Dow Jones index dropped by 0.8%, or 270 points, marking the third consecutive daily decline and a total decline of over 2% since the beginning of the week.
