Stocks: US equity markets experienced a choppy to marginally higher session ahead of the Thanksgiving Day holiday. The stock crunch signaled a possible turning point for the long-rallying markets, which spent the summer unusually flat — buoyed by encouraging U.S. economic indicators and better-than-expected corporate results. Analysts pointed to the stark difference between the relative health of the U.S. job market and broader economy vs. the spread of market anxiety overseas.
Looming questions over whether the Federal Reserve will raise its ultra-low interest rates for the first time in nearly a decade drove domestic worries, as well as prices for U.S. crude oil that briefly dipped below $40 a barrel, the cheapest since 2009. The Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index sank below 2000 for the first time since January and closed at 1970.89, posting its sharpest one-week drop in four years.
The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury bond, a low-risk comfort in times of stress, dropped to its lowest level since April, about 2.04 percent, a sign that investors were eager to avoid a potential market meltdown.
