Wall Street Analysis

“Eventually, the market will overcome its concerns, and the debt ceiling issue is clearly one of them,” said Chris Barto, an investment analyst at Fort Pitt Capital. “But I think, to some extent, the market has priced in the possibility of a deal.”
“The Fed remains a focus for all investors,” said Brian Price, director of investment management at the Commonwealth Financial Network. “It’s a tug of war over the Fed’s possible actions: Will they raise rates one or two more, or stop. , and we’ll see what the inflation data looks like in the next few months.”
Gina Bolvin, president of Bolvin Wealth Management Group, believes the decline in consumer confidence could be a bullish indicator against the trend, and the next catalyst to move the market will be this week’s non-farm payrolls report.
