The New York stock market rose on the 30th (local time). On the New York Stock Exchange ( NYSE ), the Dow closed at 34,890.24, up 37.57 points (0.11%) from the previous trading day. The S&P 500 index closed at 4,514.87, up 17.24 points (0.38%), and the Nasdaq index, centered on technology stocks, closed at 14,019.31, up 75.55 points (0.54%).

On this day, the market paid attention to the news announced by ADP that private employment and gross domestic product ( GDP ) were slower than expected. Ahead of the Labor Department’s employment report coming out on the 1st of this week, the ADP employment indicator

showing private sector employment came in below expectations, reinforcing the view that the job market is slowing faster than expected. Private sector employment in August increased by 177,000 from the previous month, falling below the 200,000 increase expected by experts compiled by the Wall Street Journal ( WSJ ). Today’s figure is less than half of the previous month’s revised figure of 371,000. The July job announcements announced the previous day fell to the lowest level since March 2021, and private employment also slowed, adding weight to the forecast that employment is slowing faster than expected. Federal Reserve System ( Fed)

According to economists, the Labor Department’s August nonfarm payrolls are expected to have increased by 170,000 from the previous month. This is a decrease from 187,000 the previous month. The unemployment rate is expected to remain the same as the previous month at 3.5%.

The provisional U.S. economic growth rate for the second quarter of this year (April to June) announced on this day also fell below both the initially announced preliminary figure and the forecast. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, seasonally adjusted gross domestic product ( GDP ) in the second quarter was revised to increase at an annual rate of 2.1% compared to the previous quarter. This is similar to the confirmed growth rate of 2.0% in the first quarter, and falls below both the previously announced 2.4% increase and the 2.4% increase predicted by economists compiled by the Wall Street Journal ( WSJ ).

Amid growing expectations for a soft landing in the U.S. economy, the growth rate remained in the 2% range.

As the indicators came out sluggish, the decline in U.S. Treasury yields widened, especially in short-term bonds. The interest rate on 2-year government bonds fell to 4.83% during the day, and the interest rate on 10-year bonds fell to 4.09%. Both 2-year and 10-year bond interest rates hit their lowest levels since August 11.

New York stock market experts assessed that the sluggish economic indicators were positive for stocks in that they lowered the risk of further tightening.

“Yesterday was a typical day where ‘bad news becomes good news,’” Ipek Ozkadeskaya, an analyst at Swiss Quot Bank, told MarketWatch. “Yesterday was a typical day where bad news becomes good news,” he said. “The unexpected decline in job postings in the U.S. and a decline in consumer confidence have led to a decline in U.S. and global risk appetite,” he said. He said he came back to life. “The weak data put Fed hawks aside, strengthened expectations of a freeze in September and made it more likely that there will be no hike in November,” he said.
