The market waters have gotten choppy in the second quarter, with the Dow facing another triple-digit drop today – a performance not seen in weeks. The rumblings in the investor realm grow louder as Treasury yields creep up, signaling a bleak outlook on the likelihood of interest rate cuts in June, amplified by last week’s heavy inflation data. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq is shedding its tech-weight while the S&P 500 is tiptoeing closely behind.

Stay tuned for a deeper dive into today’s market activities:

  • A Chinese e-tail stock teetering on the edge of a bearish trend.
  • Will airline stocks remain β€œMasters of the Air” in the long run?
  • Time to invest in a retail gem, watch Trump stock plummet, and witness the frenzy around an outperforming FAANG stock.

Oil and Gold Rally Amid Middle East Turmoil

In the wake of international unrest, gold isn’t left behind, scaling new heights despite a robust U.S. dollar. June’s gold jumped $24.70, representing a 1% increase, and settling at $2,281.80 per ounce.
