Stock Market Today Mid-Morning Updates

On Friday morning, the Dow Jones Industrial Average started to rebound after dropping by 200 points early Friday morning. This comes following comments from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s Jackson Hole speech. In detail, Powell warned investors that may be ‘some pain’ ahead in their efforts to get bring down inflation.

In his speech, he also reaffirmed the Fed will continue to increase interest rates to help battle inflation. Moreover, Powell stated, “restoring price stability will likely require maintaining a restrictive policy stance for some time. The historical record cautions strongly against prematurely loosening policy.

Additionally, as this week winds down investors are still paying close attention to companies that still have to report their corporate earnings. Specifically, on Friday morning, retail companies such as JinkoSolar Holdings Company (NYSE: JKS) reported earnings. Meanwhile, investors await earnings from companies like Pinduoduo Inc. (NASDAQ: PDD), Best Buy Co, Inc. (NYSE: BBY), and Futu Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ: FUTU) will report their most recent quarterly earnings early next week.
