    Stock Market Gauges Barely Budge as Fed Decision Looms

The market is certain that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates at the end of the month, with the only remaining debate over whether it will be 0.25 or 0.50 of a percentage point from the current target range of 2.25% to 2.50%.

    Stocks skid lower to end worst week since May amid disappointment on Fed rate-cut plans

    U.S. stocks finished firmly lower Friday, capping the worst week for equities since the end of May, as doubts about the magnitude of an expected rate cut by the Federal Reserve softened the buying mood on Wall Street. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 0.3% at 27,154, off 69 points, the S&P 500 index retreated 0.6% at 2,977, while the Nasdaq Composite Index pulled back 0.7% to end at 8,146. For the week, the Dow booked a 0.7% decline, the S&P 500 finished with a weekly slide of 1.2%, while the Nasdaq logged a 1.2% drop over the five-session period. For all three stock gauges it was the steepest weekly decline since the period ended May 31, according to FactSet data. Reports of Iran seizing oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz added to uncertainty on the day and Federal Reserve officials attempted moderate comments made by NY Fed boss John Williams, whose comments investors appeared to interpret as implying a 50-basis-point rate cut at the end of this month.
