The Strongest, Weakest Stocks as Powell Prepares for Confirmation

by | Jan 11, 2022 | Stock Market Sectors

The markets are recovering as we come off of one of the worst sell-offs in tech we’ve had in a long time — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell is set to speak before a Senate committee for his confirmation hearing. He will likely talk about inflationary pressure and the Fed’s plans going forward, including a timeline for rate hikes.

It’s still unknown if he’ll be cautious or plow full steam ahead in pulling back on bond purchases.

With the delta and now omicron variants further disrupting the economy, it’s possible the Fed may slow down its plans. If it does and continues to buy bonds, the market should rally.

Elsewhere in the news, the U.S. is experiencing a 50% increase in COVID-19 cases compared to the previous week as the omicron variant continues to wreak havoc on society.

The good news is deaths have been cut in half compared to the numbers seen this time last year thanks to access to vaccines.
