Benzinga Bulls And Bears: Tesla, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, And Bitcoin Analysts Unleash Extreme 2024 Price Projections, Skyrocketing Up To $100,000

The stock market experienced its first week of losses in 10 weeks, with the Nasdaq seeing the most significant drop of 3.25%. This decline marks the largest weekly decline for the Nasdaq since September. The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones also fell by 1.52% and 0.59% respectively.

Despite this, the U.S. job market performed exceptionally well in December, surpassing expectations with the addition of 216,000 nonfarm jobs. This number exceeded the estimated 170,000 jobs. The unemployment rate remained steady at 3.7%, indicating a strong labor market.

This positive employment data suggests that the Federal Reserve may delay its anticipated interest rate cuts. Market traders were previously optimistic about rate reductions starting as early as March, with up to six cuts expected in 2024. However, these expectations may need to be adjusted in light of the robust job market.
