Stocks Skid Lower to End Worst Week Since May Smid Disappointment on Fed Rate-cut Plans
Saturday, 20 July 2019 03:24 WIB | MARKET UPDATE |DOW JONESS & P 500SahamAS

U.S. stocks finished firmly lower Friday, capping the worst week for equities since the end of May, as doubts about the magnitude of an expected rate cut by the Federal Reserve softened the buying mood on Wall Street.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 0.3% at 27,154, off 69 points, the S&P 500 index retreated 0.6% at 2,977, while the Nasdaq Composite Index pulled back 0.7% to end at 8,146. For the week, the Dow booked a 0.7% decline, the S&P 500 finished with a weekly slide of 1.2%, while the Nasdaq logged a 1.2% drop over the five-session period. For all three stock gauges it was the steepest weekly decline since the period ended May 31, according to FactSet data.

Reports of Iran seizing oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz added to uncertainty on the day and Federal Reserve officials attempted moderate comments made by NY Fed boss John Williams, whose comments investors appeared to interpret as implying a 50-basis-point rate cut at the end of this month.
