Dow Jones futures were higher after Monday’s stock market crash. The large equity indices sold out with large losses to reach new lows in 2021, when government interest rates rose to their highest level since 2011.
Then comes more inflation data with the Ministry of Labor’s producer price index on Tuesday, while the Federal Reserve’s long-awaited two-day meeting also starts.

After Monday’s close, Dow Jones futures rose 0.5% to fair value, and S&P 500 futures rose 0.6%. Nasdaq 100 futures increased by 0.75% relative to fair value. Keep in mind that overnight trading in Dow futures and elsewhere does not necessarily translate into actual trading in the next regular trading session.
The 10-year government bond yield rose to 3.36% on Monday, the highest level since April 2011. Meanwhile, US oil prices remain close to recent highs, with West Texas Intermediate trading around $ 121 a barrel. In early March, the WTI briefly topped $ 130 a barrel.
Producer prices are expected to rise 0.8% in May after rising 0.5% in April, according to Econoday. Producer growth is expected to jump by 11% from year to year. The producer price index is a measure of price stability based on sales prices received by domestic producers for their production.
The Fed starts its last two-day political meeting on Tuesday, and there is a broad opinion that the central bank will raise the reference rate by half a percentage point on Wednesday. But expectations that the Fed will be forced to move even more aggressively this year are rising since Friday’s hot inflation report.

What to do after today’s stock market crash
On Monday, the Dow Jones industrial average, Nasdaq and S&P 500 reached new correction levels, as the stock market plunged. Investors should be looking for an up-day to mark the start of a new rally attempt.
In the midst of the ever-deeper stock market correction, investors should largely – if not completely – stand on the sidelines. New purchases are prohibited. Keeping a watch list of stocks that are doing well in a declining market is also a good way to be prepared for the next upturn in the stock market.
Remember that leading stocks from the past may not be the leaders of the future. To help find stock managers emerging in a new market trend, use the relative strength line to see which stocks outperform the general market.
During a stock market correction, investors should identify companies whose stock prices are fighting the stock market’s downward trend. A strong RS line will point sharply higher, either in the base period or just after an outbreak.
Monday’s The Big Picture column commented: “After going down at the opening, the indices remained weak until the end. The four-day losing streak in the main indices is now the largest since March 2020, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The steep fall competes with it “This year’s Covid market crash. Apart from this time, we are already in a market downturn for at least five months.”
