Stock markets in New York opened lower on Wednesday. Investors on Wall Street are looking at inflation data from the US, which was higher than expected. In recent days, fears of a sharp rise in inflation and rising interest rates have also led to a fall in prices in the stock markets, especially for technical funds.
U.S. inflation was 0.8 percent on a monthly basis in April. This is the strongest increase since 2009 and was expected to be 0.2 percent. If inflation rises rapidly, the Federal Reserve, the US umbrella for central banks, may move to raise interest rates faster. This is especially unfavorable for technology companies that have recently lost value. Apple, Google parent parent Alphabet, Microsoft, Tesla and Facebook were up 1.5 percent in red.
Banks benefit from higher interest rates. It made up 2.4 per cent plus major US banks like Citigroup, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs.
