Is the Nasdaq on the Brink of Crashing… or Rallying?

by | Jan 18, 2022 | Stock Market Sectors

The Nasdaq is down big on the first trading day of the week following the markets being closed Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

The Nasdaq is on track to open 1.7% lower as bond yields move higher, with the yield on the two-year Treasury breaking above 1% for the first time since February 2020.

The Dow is also set to open lower by 1% with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) dropping on disappointing earnings.

Not only did the company miss on earnings, it reported that operating expenses soared 23% from the previous year.

Elsewhere in the news, Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) is set to buy beaten-down video game company Activision Blizzard Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) in an all-cash deal for $68.7 billion, causing Activision’s shares to surge 37% premarket.
