Wealth Daily 28 October 2021

The Dow and S&P 500 pulled back from recent highs on Wed. The Dow Jones

Industrial Average lost 266.19 pts or 0.74% lower to close at 35,490.69. The

broader S&P 500 index fell 0.51%.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite was able to finish just barely in the green,

propped up by strong performances from Microsoft (MSFT US, +4.21%) and

Alphabet (GOOGL US, +4.96%). Both reported results that beat estimates.

In global bond markets, yields curves were flattening. Central bankers are

preparing to tighten monetary policies to combat inflation, sending the yields of

short-term government debt higher. Meanwhile, bond traders are starting to

wonder whether economies can handle higher rates, sending the yields of

longer term bonds lower.
