U.S. Stock Indices Inch Down, Tesla Gain 2% Over

U.S. stock indices ended lower on Tuesday, with the Nasdaq and S&P indices concluding a five-day winning streak.

The Federal Reserve meeting minutes indicated the necessity of maintaining restrictive monetary policies.

The market currently shows increasing bets on a Fed interest rate cut.

Housing price surges drove U.S. home sales in October to a 13-year low.

The Fed released the minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting held from October 31st to November 1st.

During this meeting, the Fed skipped a rate hike for the second consecutive time.

The minutes revealed a unanimous view among Fed officials to “proceed cautiously” on rate matters, linking any tightening in monetary policy to developments in combating inflation.

The minutes stated, “All participants agreed that the Committee should proceed cautiously, with each meeting’s policy decisions based on a comprehensive assessment of the information.”

Despite robust consumer spending and hiring data, the Fed kept the benchmark interest rates unchanged in the range of 5.25% to 5.5% during that meeting.
