Nvidia, hailed by Goldman Sachs as “the most important stock on the planet,” released earnings after the US stock market on Wednesday. Nvidia's stock price continued to fall before the release of this major earnings report, which tested the market's confidence in the AI boom, leading blue-chip technology stocks to drag down the market.

The minutes of the US Federal Reserve meeting at the end of January released at noon show that Federal Reserve officials are worried that interest rates will be cut too fast and that the decline in inflation will stagnate. Reporter Nick Timiraos, known as the “New Federal Reserve News Agency,” later wrote that the minutes showed that most Federal Reserve officials were concerned about premature interest rate cuts and deep-seated price pressure, not that high interest rates remained too long. Only two pointed out the risk of long-term high interest rates.

After the release of the minutes, the decline of major US stock indexes widened and reached a new low, but the decline did not continue. Although the NASDAQ fell further to its low level in the past two weeks, the S&P and Dow rebounded thrillingly due to rising levels at the end of the session. After the market, Nvidia's revenue for the fiscal quarter and the current fiscal quarter's guidance were higher than expected. After the market, Nvidia stopped falling and rebounded, and stock prices rose, driving chip stocks and AI concept stocks to rise together after the market.

The rebound in US stocks at the end of the session was partly due to zero-date options trading

Demand for the 20-year US Treasury bid sale completed by the US Treasury Department on Wednesday was extremely weak. The “tail” of demand, that is, the gap between the winning interest rate and the pre-issue interest rate was the largest since the 20-year US bond bid was recorded. The ratio for overseas investors hit a new low in nearly three years. After the bid results were announced, the decline in US bond prices widened, and yields rebounded further. The benchmark 10-year US bond yield was 4.30%. After the release of the Federal Reserve minutes, the yield continued to rise, once approaching the two-month high set last week.
