The hawkish Fed raises Treasury yields

St. Louis Fed Bullard said the federal funds rate, currently at 3.75%-4%, should probably rise to 7%, well above the consensus of about 5%. George of the Kansas City Fed said a recession may be necessary to bring down inflation.

Stock market rally analysis
The stock market rally tested some key levels at the open on Thursday. The Nasdaq found support just above the 50-day moving average. The S&P 500 fell to short-term highs in October for a brief period. Russell 2000 rebounded from near the 21-day streak. S&P 400 MidCap held the 200-day streak.
It can be said that the market was about to decline after a strong wave, and the S&P 500 index approached the 200-day line. Meanwhile, the market rally found support on Thursday in important areas. So the past two days have been somewhat normal and constructive for the major indices – assuming they can hold Thursday’s lows and eventually move higher.
However, the market pulled back from Tuesday’s high to Thursday’s low, which led to a number of stocks breaking out or making early entries in the past two days. Many of those entries tested or failed completely. Some bounce back while others may. In some cases, previous purchase points are still valid, while others may need to set new handles or other entries. Still others may struggle for a long time.
A variety of stocks and sectors show interesting actions.
In all of these cases, a healthy market recovery will be key.
Apple, Microsoft and Google stocks are not market leaders and may not be for some time. But if they can avoid being late, that would be a huge help.

The stock market rally remains volatile, with sector turnover and large intraday swings complicating matters. Buying opportunities have often been the moment the market pulls the rug out from investors.
