The three major US stock indexes rebounded for the second day in a row. The energy sector led the rise of S&P by 2.5%. The small-cap stock index closed up more than 2%, outperforming the market for two days. Among the “Seven Sisters” of technology, only Meta and Tesla did not fall. Tesla rose more than 6%, Meta rose more than 2% to a record high, and Nvidia fell more than 1%, falling to a record high in closing history. After the earnings report, Cisco fell more than 2%, leading the decline among the Dow's constituent stocks. After Nvidia disclosed its holdings in the fourth quarter, Nano-X closed up nearly 50%, reflecting half of the increase at the beginning of the market. AI company SOUN, which had risen 80% at the beginning of the market, rose nearly 67%, and the AI concept stock ultra-microcomputer rose 14% and hit a record high on the 9th. Arm closed up nearly 6%, and turned down during the intraday period. China's stock index rose nearly 1%, outperforming the market over the past few days. Pinduoduo rose more than 2%, and Xiaopeng Motor rose nearly 2%.

After the retail sales data was released, the two-year US Treasury yield first hit a new low, falling 8 basis points, and then leveled off all declines and then rose; the US dollar index hit a new low. The offshore renminbi rose more than 100 points in the intraday period and recovered by 7.22.

Crude oil rebounded, and US oil rose nearly 2% to a three-month high. US natural gas hit a new low for more than three years on the 7th. Gold stopped five consecutive declines and bid farewell to its two-month low. Lunzinc rose nearly 2%, and Luntong rebounded to a one-week high.

Economic data released on Thursday were mixed: retail sales in the US fell 0.8% month-on-month in January, the biggest drop in nearly a year, about four times what analysts expected, showing that after the year-end holiday shopping season, US retail sales slowed beyond expectations, causing the market to pick up expectations for interest rate cuts; while in February, the confidence index of US homebuilders surpassed expectations and hit a six-month high. Last week, the number of people applying for unemployment benefits for the first time in the US did not increase but fell, reflecting economic resilience.

After the retail data was released, the swap agreement showed that investor pricing fully reflected the Fed's interest rate cut in June this year. The price of US Treasury bonds first rose and then fell, and the yield declined somewhat and then narrowed. The review said that digesting mixed data makes it difficult for the bond market to find a solid foundation. Currently, investors are waiting for PPI announced on Friday and consumer inflation expectations in the University of Michigan survey, hoping to find clues to judge the Fed's interest rate path.

The market anticipates that the probability that the Fed will cut interest rates in May has rebounded to 33%, and the total number of interest rate cuts this year has risen to about four times

While US bond yields are falling, major US stock indexes almost failed to maintain their rebound momentum in the intraday period. As technology stocks, which are the main upside drivers of US stocks, partially fell this year, the NASDAQ index fell in early trading. Among the tech giants “Seven Sisters,” only Meta and Tesla rose, chip stocks turned down in the middle of the day, and Nvidia fell to an all-time high in closing. Cisco, which had poor performance guidance, performed the worst among the Dow's constituents. Meanwhile, energy stocks took over technology stocks and became market leaders, and small-cap stocks and Chinese securities continued to outperform the market.

Meanwhile, Nvidia's first disclosure of quarterly holdings showed that its quarterly holdings soared in the fourth quarter: medical imaging technology company Nano-X Imaging doubled, voice artificial intelligence (AI) technology company SoundHound AI rose 80%, and another AI concept stock, ultra-microcomputer (SMCI), rose more than 10%. Last week's earnings report showed that chip design giant Arm, which benefited from the AI boom, rose 6%.

The UK announced that GDP growth for the fourth quarter contracted for two consecutive quarters, falling into a technical recession, causing investors to increase their bets on the Bank of England's interest rate cut this year. ECB President Lagarde said that recent economic data suggests that inflation in the Eurozone is declining towards the central bank's target as expected by the central bank. The review said that because there are relatively few signs that inflation continues to be high in the Eurozone, the ECB has more room to cut interest rates than the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England. However, European treasury yields failed to continue to decline. British bond yields were low on a new day when the UK GDP was announced, and gradually rose after the US economic data was released.

On the foreign exchange market side, after the US retail data was released, the US dollar index reached a new low. It continued to fall from the three-month high it had set before turning down on Wednesday. Non-US currencies generally rose, and the yen recovered from the 150 mark. Bitcoin's intraday estimate of $52,700 continued to hit a new high of more than two years. US stocks took back most of their intraday gains and fell by 52,000 US dollars, falling more than 1,000 US dollars from the intraday high.

A variety of commodities rose, supported by the downturn in the US dollar. Gold futures, which had been falling for a week, reversed the decline and bid farewell to a two-month low. Although the International Energy Agency (IEA) lowered its oil demand growth forecast for this year, international crude oil continued to rise in the intraday period. After US retail data was released, as the dollar's decline widened and oil prices rebounded at an accelerated pace. US oil closed higher on the 8th of the last nine trading days, rising to a three-month high. According to some commentators, no one believes the IEA's pessimistic predictions and is more inclined to the optimistic outlook presented in the OPEC monthly report earlier this week. When the overall stock market is so positive and the tension in the Middle East has not abated, it is difficult for analysts to put forward a reason to short oil.

The NASDAQ declined in early trading, and the energy sector led the rise in the S&P small-cap stock index and the China General Stock Index outperformed the market over the past few days

The three major US stock indexes failed to collectively open higher, and their intraday performance was mixed.

The small-cap stock index Russell 2000, which is mainly value stocks, closed up 2.45%, outperforming the market for two consecutive days, and rebounded for two consecutive days after falling nearly 4% on Tuesday to the biggest decline since June 2020. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 Index closed up 0.21% and rebounded for two days after falling to a low level since February 6. Meanwhile, the NASDAQ Technology Market Capitalization Weighted Index (NDXTMC), which measures the performance of technology components in the NASDAQ 100 index, fell nearly 1% in early trading, closed down 0.43%. After rebounding nearly 1.5% on Wednesday, it fell back, and then began to fall back from the historical closing level refreshed last Friday.
