The Long and Short of it, week ending 05 Mar 2021

Publication Type: Market Commentaries

Another volatile week for U.S. equity markets as investors struggled with strong economic data, decreasing Covid-19 infections, increasing vaccinations and rising interest rates. Tech stocks continued to fare the worst, suffering most from concerns over rising rates, with the Nasdaq Composite Index decreasing last week while the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Indexes increased. House passage of the $1.9 trillion stimulus package, approval of J&J’s Covid-19 vaccination and stable 10-year Treasury rates powered all three indexes 2% to 3% higher on Monday only to see those gains swept away by increased uncertainty and concerns from a resumption of rising longer-term U.S. Treasury rates spurred by stronger-than-exepected economic reports and status-quo comments by Fed Chairman Powell. All three indexes rallied on Friday after initially falling as 10-year Treasury rates spiked then fell to unchanged on the day following the much betterthan-expected release of the Employment Situation report. The U.S. dollar strengthened
last week, reflecting continued market uncertainty with stock market levels. At week’s end the S&P 500 Index increased 0.8% to 3,841.94 the Nasdaq Composite Index fell 2.1% to 12,920.15, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 1.8% to 31,496.30, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 15bps to 1.57% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 1.2%.
