  • S&P 500 trades to 50-day moving average

  • Indicators Down: Dow 0.49%, S&P 0.71%, Nasdaq 0.96%

September 17 (Reuters) – U.S. stock indexes plummeted on Friday, leading major technology companies, distrusting high corporate taxes, and the upcoming Federal Reserve meeting.

Nasdaq (.IXIC), one of the strongest performers in the US and strongest economic readings since the end of July, is urging investors to enter the economy and move out of technology this week.

“The week is volatile,” said Luis Dudley, managing director of Fednes Hermes International Trading International. .

The three main indicators are now ready for weekly losses, with the SDP 500 heading into its worst two-week performance since the end of February.

While leading Democrats are trying to raise the maximum tax rate on corporations from 21% to 26.5% from now on, there is also a risk that there may be a rise in corporate tax revenue.

According to Dudley, when the two sides negotiate, we expect greater market volatility as changes in corporate tax rates, especially for low-tax sectors such as technology and biotech, and high-income international companies, play a role.

The focus is now on the Federal Reserve meeting next week, with investors arguing that strong economic data this week could prompt the bank to cut its financial stimulus.
