Analysis: US stock rebound lacks fundamental support market waiting for Powell semi-annual hearing

Most analysts, however, saw Tuesday's rally as a brief, small rebound after a sharp sell-off that was likely to be followed by further weakness because the market's fundamentals lacked support. Meanwhile, investors are also awaiting Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's semi-annual congressional testimony on Wednesday and Thursday, with expectations that he will continue to play hawk, raising the odds that aggressive monetary policy could trigger a recession.

Europe's three major stock markets closed slightly higher today

In Europe, the three major stock markets also closed higher Tuesday, though none rose more than 1%, with London up 0.43%, Paris up 0.75% and Frankfurt up a modest 0.2%.

The yen-dollar exchange rate briefly fell to 136 yen yesterday, the lowest level in 24 years

Also in the spotlight Tuesday was the weakening yen, which briefly fell below y136 to the dollar, its lowest level in nearly 24 years since October 1998. On Tuesday, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida met with Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda at his official residence to discuss the recent weakening of the yen against the dollar. Kishida said the sharp depreciation of the yen was a matter of concern. Kuroda also said that the sharp depreciation of the yen has brought uncertainty to the business plans of Japanese companies and he does not want this situation to continue. He said he would closely watch the foreign exchange market and cooperate with the government to deal with the situation.
