What’s driving the market?

Monday’s late-day paring for Wall Street came amid a sense by some investors that Fed Chair Powell — reappointed a second time by President Joe Biden — could tighten policy faster than Lael Brainard, who was appointed Vice Chair but had also been in the running for the top job.

“Ultimately I don’t see how the Powell-led Fed is more hawkish today than it was last week, but we should always beware linear thinking: even the Fed can adapt and learn from the persistently high inflation,” said Neil Wilson, chief market analyst for Markets.com, in a note to clients.

“You never know, perhaps the Fed — and the White House — are starting to heed some warnings about what untethered inflation can do. In summary, you could say there has been a whiff of a hawkish tilt at the Fed in recent weeks and the administration is OK with that,” said Wilson.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note

1.639%

was hovering at 1.632%, after yields across the board rose at the fastest daily rate in nearly two weeks.

Trading volumes are expected to thin out as Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day holiday nears. Investors will get the flash Markit manufacturing and services purchasing managers indexes for November at 9:45 a.m. Eastern Time.

Markets will close Thursday and open a half-day on Friday in observance of the Thanksgiving Day.

Across other markets, oil prices were under pressure, with West Texas Intermediate crude

-1.06%

down more than 1% to $75.70 a barrel, ahead of the possible release of strategic oil reserves by the U.S. administration, which some see as soon as Tuesday. Markets are waiting to see if the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies could rethink their own plans to boost production.
