Tesla Slides As Goldman Sachs Lowers Target, Fed Meeting In Focus

U.S. stocks edged higher on Monday. The market is closely watching the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy meeting scheduled for later this week, with expectations that the institution will maintain interest rates.

Investors are assessing the potential for inflation to rise due to the recent UAW strike and the risk of a U.S. government shutdown.

The Federal Reserve meeting takes center stage in the market this week. The institution’s monetary policy meeting begins on Tuesday, with the results set to be announced on Wednesday, followed by a press conference by Fed Chair Powell.

The market generally anticipates that the Fed will keep interest rates unchanged. Traders hope to gain deeper insights into the Fed’s future stance on inflation from the meeting statement and Powell’s remarks.
