This behavior is explained by investors’ concern about monetary policy in the United States, where it is feared that there will be a more aggressive approach in the withdrawal of stimuli by the Federal Reserve and may raise rates this year, indicating that Wall Street increasingly expects the central bank to aggressively try to curb inflation.
Finally, it should be noted that even with the rebound on Monday, stocks continue to decline considerably during the year. The S&P 500 has fallen for five consecutive days and is down 2% since the beginning of January. The Nasdaq is down more than 4%.
