Last Week’s Highlights

A volatile week for US indices

US stocks started Monday sinking in one of the worst trading days on the NYSE in months, especially due to a selloff caused by fears among investors of the setbacks on recovery that the delta variant may cause. However, markets shook off these fears the rest of the week, helping stocks rise back to record levels by the end of the week. 

Zomato’s first trading day

Continuing on Zomato’s impressive IPO listing more than a week ago, the Indian tech unicorn impressed investors even further by rising to unprecedented levels, 65% price increase, on Friday on its first trading day on the Mumbai Stock Exchange. The company ended the day with a market value of 13 billion Dollars. 

Coming Up This Week

Fed to announce new monetary decisions

The Fed will kick-off a two-day meeting on Tuesday and is set to announce decisions late on Wednesday. It is expected that these announcements will include efforts to curb inflation as regulators are worried about the effect of the delta variant on the economy, as it already caused a selloff on the NYSE on Monday, sinking markets. 

Big tech reports warm-up earnings season

The biggest names in the tech world are set to present their second-quarter earnings reports. Big names in the S&P 500 like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Alphabet are in the list of companies submitting their Q2 reports and are expected to warm an already interesting earnings season in which about 88% of tech companies in the S&P, of 24% that have submitted Q2 reports, surpassed Wall Street’s expectations.
