U.S. stock market closed with mixed results on Monday as investors continued to assess the impact of Moody’s downgrade of the U.S. credit rating outlook.
This week, the market’s focal points include October’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) and retail sales.
Over the weekend, the U.S. government faces a potential shutdown, prompted by escalating risks such as a deteriorating U.S. fiscal position and heightened political polarization.
Moody’s reacted by downgrading the credit rating outlook from “stable” to “negative,” citing the significant fiscal deficit and partisan deadlock in Washington as contributing factors.
