The buzz around electric vehicles in the past several years has excited investors about the industry. Nio, a Chinese electric vehicle designer, manufacturer, and seller, is no exception. The company's share price movement has had its ups and downs however some market commentators indicate that the company’s fundamentals have remained the same and that the recent share price volatility has resulted from other market forces, particularly the performance of the U.S. 10-year Treasury Bond i.e. rising interest rates.

Another turbulent week for U.S. stock markets as soaring commodity prices – a direct consequence of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the resulting sanctions on Russia – increased fears of stagflation and markedly slower economic growth. All three major U.S. stock indexes fell sharply Monday with the Nasdaq Composite Index shedding over 3.5% and the S&P 500 Index falling nearly 3%. Monday’s move lower was precipitated primarily by ever-higher-moving oil prices. U.S. stock markets rebounded strongly Wednesday, again predicated by oil prices (this time falling prices), with reports the UAE and Iraq would be willing to pump more oil to help offset the White House’s decision to ban Russian oil and gas imports. WTI and Brent crude oil prices fell between 12% and 13% Wednesday. Nonetheless, stock prices resumed their move lower Thursday and Friday directed by a 40-year high CPI release Thursday (increasing expectations of a more aggressive Fed), no let-up in Russia’s Ukraine Invasion and continued stagflation concerns. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates rose 26bps over the week entirely driven by increasing inflation expectations. The 10-year breakeven inflation rate closed Friday at 2.98%, up 27bps from the previous Friday while 10-year real yields remained near recent lows (reflecting flightto-quality demand) of -0.98%. For the week, the S&P 500 fell 2.9% to 4,204.31, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 3.5% to 12,843.81, the Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased 2.0% to 32,943.33, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 26bp to 2.00% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.5%.

U.S. stock markets continued to be dominated by the Russia-Ukraine conflict (and ensuing Western sanctions) with stock prices moving lower amidst higher-volatility, a significantly stronger U.S dollar, falling longer-term U.S. Treasury rates and sharply rising commodity prices. Fed Chairman Powell’s comments Wednesday before Congress stating rate increases were likely to begin in March but would proceed with caution in light of the Russia-Ukraine conflict engendered the only positive day for stock markets with all three major stock indexes increasing more than 1 ½ percent. Oil and wheat prices, up almost 25% and 40%, respectively, on the week, increased fears of slower global economic growth adding to downward pressure on stock prices. Increased demand for haven investments moved gold prices and the U.S. dollar higher and U.S. Treasury rates lower over the week. Friday’s much stronger-than-expected Non-Farm Payroll Report was overshadowed by Russia’s bombing of a Ukraine nuclear power plant pushing oil prices 7% higher, 10-year U.S Treasury rate 10bps lower and strengthening the U.S. dollar 0.9%. For the week, the S&P 500 decreased 1.3% to 4,328.87, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 2.8% to 13,313.44, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 1.3% to close at 33,614.67, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate fell 23bp to 1.74% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 2.1%.

Another tumultuous week with U.S. stock markets falling precipitously the first two days of the holidayshortened week and then posting strong gains the last two days. Thursday was a particularly volatile day with the S&P 500 Index reversing a 2.6% intraday loss to close 1.5% higher. Russia recognizing and deploying troops to separatist strongholds in Ukraine and then actually invading Ukraine Thursday drove markets lower through mid-day Thursday, dragging the S&P 500 into correction territory. Thursday’s end-of-day recovery and Friday’s move higher was jump started by additional but less-harsh-than-expected U.S., UK and European sanctions on Russia and reports Russia was willing to enter into negotiations with Ukraine but also with investor sentiment moving from risk-off to risk-on with market participants believing markets were oversold. Friday’s greaterthan-expected PCE price index release seemingly had little effect on stock or bond markets. The 10-year U.S. Treasury rate moved off its Tuesday’s lows of 1.87%, increasing 13bps through Wednesday and then dropping slightly over Thursday and Friday to finish the week 4bps higher. 10-year real yields fell 8bps over the week meaning 10-year inflation expectations increased 12bps to 2.56%. At week’s end, the S&P 500 increased 0.8% to 4,384.62, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.1% to 13,694.62, the Dow Jones Industrial Average edged 0.1% lower to 34,058.55, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 4bp to 1.97% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.6%

A high-volatility week with U.S. stock markets pushed and pulled by Russia-Ukraine-U.S. tensions and all but ignoring inflation and Fed monetary policy concerns. All three major stock indexes fell by 1.5% or more last week with daily moves of ¾ percent or more occurring 3 times for each index. U.S. stock prices continued their move lower Monday following the previous Friday’s sell off spurred by a White House announcement that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was imminent. Markets reversed course Tuesday, moving higher on Russian reports of troop withdrawal from Ukraine’s border and growing hopes of de-escalation of tensions (and were mostly unchanged Wednesday following the release of FOMC minutes). Those hopes were dashed Thursday as NATO rebuffed Russian claims of troop withdrawal and as the White House again warned a Russian invasion of Ukraine was imminent causing all three major indexes to move sharply lower over Thursday and Friday. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates mirrored stock markets, rising 13bps through Tuesday with increasing hopes of Russian de-escalation and then falling 12bps the remainder of the week as those hopes faded. At week’s end, the S&P 500 fell 1.6% to 4,348,87, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 1.8% to 13,548.07, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 1.9% falling to 34,079.12, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 1bp to 1.93% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) was practically unchanged.

All three major U.S. stock indexes moved higher through Wednesday, energized by better-thanexpected earnings reports (including Amazon’s from the previous week) and buy-the-dip investor sentiment. Thursday’s much higher-than-expected CPI release, showing CPI reaching a four-decade high, reversed sentiment, pulling stock markets sharply lower. Sharply increased expectations of a more aggressive Fed raising rates 50bp in March and growing expectations of rate increases at every FOMC meeting this year drove stock prices markedly lower as investors grappled with the effects of higher rates on stock prices and with the possibility of continued elevated inflation levels. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates, reflecting these same concerns, moved 13bps higher through Thursday (closing at 2.04%) as 10-year real yields rose 8bps and 10-year inflation expectations increased 5bps. Friday’s late-afternoon White House announcement that Russia could invade Ukraine at any time diverted investor attention from Fed policy to economic and geopolitical repercussions of an invasion, dramatically increasing risk-off sentiment and driving stock prices sharply lower while increasing haven investment values such as gold, U.S. Treasuries and the U.S. dollar. All three major stock market indexes fell 1.5% or more Friday and the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate dropped 13bps to unchanged on the week. At week’s end, the S&P 500 fell 1.8% to 4,418.64, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 2.2% to 13,791.15, the Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased 1.0% to 34,737.47, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate was unchanged at 1.92% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.6%.

While many people think of electric cars as a modern-day invention, electric vehicles have actually been around since the Civil War, long before gas cars were invented. In fact, Thomas Davenport developed the first electric motor in 1834. While gas cars are more popular than electric cars, over the past few years, more and more people have switched to electric vehicles in an effort to help the environment and alleviate fuel costs.

The buzz around electric vehicles in the past several years has excited investors about the industry. Nio, a Chinese electric vehicle designer, manufacturer, and seller, is no exception. The company's share price movement has had its ups and downs however some market commentators indicate that the company’s fundamentals have remained the same and that the recent share price volatility has resulted from other market forces, particularly the performance of the U.S. 10-year Treasury Bond i.e. rising interest rates.

Another turbulent week for U.S. stock markets as soaring commodity prices – a direct consequence of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the resulting sanctions on Russia – increased fears of stagflation and markedly slower economic growth. All three major U.S. stock indexes fell sharply Monday with the Nasdaq Composite Index shedding over 3.5% and the S&P 500 Index falling nearly 3%. Monday’s move lower was precipitated primarily by ever-higher-moving oil prices. U.S. stock markets rebounded strongly Wednesday, again predicated by oil prices (this time falling prices), with reports the UAE and Iraq would be willing to pump more oil to help offset the White House’s decision to ban Russian oil and gas imports. WTI and Brent crude oil prices fell between 12% and 13% Wednesday. Nonetheless, stock prices resumed their move lower Thursday and Friday directed by a 40-year high CPI release Thursday (increasing expectations of a more aggressive Fed), no let-up in Russia’s Ukraine Invasion and continued stagflation concerns. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates rose 26bps over the week entirely driven by increasing inflation expectations. The 10-year breakeven inflation rate closed Friday at 2.98%, up 27bps from the previous Friday while 10-year real yields remained near recent lows (reflecting flightto-quality demand) of -0.98%. For the week, the S&P 500 fell 2.9% to 4,204.31, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 3.5% to 12,843.81, the Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased 2.0% to 32,943.33, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 26bp to 2.00% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.5%.

U.S. stock markets continued to be dominated by the Russia-Ukraine conflict (and ensuing Western sanctions) with stock prices moving lower amidst higher-volatility, a significantly stronger U.S dollar, falling longer-term U.S. Treasury rates and sharply rising commodity prices. Fed Chairman Powell’s comments Wednesday before Congress stating rate increases were likely to begin in March but would proceed with caution in light of the Russia-Ukraine conflict engendered the only positive day for stock markets with all three major stock indexes increasing more than 1 ½ percent. Oil and wheat prices, up almost 25% and 40%, respectively, on the week, increased fears of slower global economic growth adding to downward pressure on stock prices. Increased demand for haven investments moved gold prices and the U.S. dollar higher and U.S. Treasury rates lower over the week. Friday’s much stronger-than-expected Non-Farm Payroll Report was overshadowed by Russia’s bombing of a Ukraine nuclear power plant pushing oil prices 7% higher, 10-year U.S Treasury rate 10bps lower and strengthening the U.S. dollar 0.9%. For the week, the S&P 500 decreased 1.3% to 4,328.87, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 2.8% to 13,313.44, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 1.3% to close at 33,614.67, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate fell 23bp to 1.74% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 2.1%.

Another tumultuous week with U.S. stock markets falling precipitously the first two days of the holidayshortened week and then posting strong gains the last two days. Thursday was a particularly volatile day with the S&P 500 Index reversing a 2.6% intraday loss to close 1.5% higher. Russia recognizing and deploying troops to separatist strongholds in Ukraine and then actually invading Ukraine Thursday drove markets lower through mid-day Thursday, dragging the S&P 500 into correction territory. Thursday’s end-of-day recovery and Friday’s move higher was jump started by additional but less-harsh-than-expected U.S., UK and European sanctions on Russia and reports Russia was willing to enter into negotiations with Ukraine but also with investor sentiment moving from risk-off to risk-on with market participants believing markets were oversold. Friday’s greaterthan-expected PCE price index release seemingly had little effect on stock or bond markets. The 10-year U.S. Treasury rate moved off its Tuesday’s lows of 1.87%, increasing 13bps through Wednesday and then dropping slightly over Thursday and Friday to finish the week 4bps higher. 10-year real yields fell 8bps over the week meaning 10-year inflation expectations increased 12bps to 2.56%. At week’s end, the S&P 500 increased 0.8% to 4,384.62, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.1% to 13,694.62, the Dow Jones Industrial Average edged 0.1% lower to 34,058.55, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 4bp to 1.97% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.6%

A high-volatility week with U.S. stock markets pushed and pulled by Russia-Ukraine-U.S. tensions and all but ignoring inflation and Fed monetary policy concerns. All three major stock indexes fell by 1.5% or more last week with daily moves of ¾ percent or more occurring 3 times for each index. U.S. stock prices continued their move lower Monday following the previous Friday’s sell off spurred by a White House announcement that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was imminent. Markets reversed course Tuesday, moving higher on Russian reports of troop withdrawal from Ukraine’s border and growing hopes of de-escalation of tensions (and were mostly unchanged Wednesday following the release of FOMC minutes). Those hopes were dashed Thursday as NATO rebuffed Russian claims of troop withdrawal and as the White House again warned a Russian invasion of Ukraine was imminent causing all three major indexes to move sharply lower over Thursday and Friday. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates mirrored stock markets, rising 13bps through Tuesday with increasing hopes of Russian de-escalation and then falling 12bps the remainder of the week as those hopes faded. At week’s end, the S&P 500 fell 1.6% to 4,348,87, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 1.8% to 13,548.07, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 1.9% falling to 34,079.12, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 1bp to 1.93% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) was practically unchanged.

All three major U.S. stock indexes moved higher through Wednesday, energized by better-thanexpected earnings reports (including Amazon’s from the previous week) and buy-the-dip investor sentiment. Thursday’s much higher-than-expected CPI release, showing CPI reaching a four-decade high, reversed sentiment, pulling stock markets sharply lower. Sharply increased expectations of a more aggressive Fed raising rates 50bp in March and growing expectations of rate increases at every FOMC meeting this year drove stock prices markedly lower as investors grappled with the effects of higher rates on stock prices and with the possibility of continued elevated inflation levels. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates, reflecting these same concerns, moved 13bps higher through Thursday (closing at 2.04%) as 10-year real yields rose 8bps and 10-year inflation expectations increased 5bps. Friday’s late-afternoon White House announcement that Russia could invade Ukraine at any time diverted investor attention from Fed policy to economic and geopolitical repercussions of an invasion, dramatically increasing risk-off sentiment and driving stock prices sharply lower while increasing haven investment values such as gold, U.S. Treasuries and the U.S. dollar. All three major stock market indexes fell 1.5% or more Friday and the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate dropped 13bps to unchanged on the week. At week’s end, the S&P 500 fell 1.8% to 4,418.64, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 2.2% to 13,791.15, the Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased 1.0% to 34,737.47, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate was unchanged at 1.92% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.6%.
