WHAT ELSE HAPPENED
The S&P 500 experienced a rare event as all 11 sectors saw losses, something not seen since December. This downturn was influenced by chip designer Arm, which initially showed promise with morning gains but ended lower despite a strong stock-market debut. Adobe also added to the market's challenges with disappointing earnings, causing its shares to be among the notable losers in the S&P 500.
Despite the challenging week for stocks, the price of oil continued its upward trajectory, marking its highest closing price for Brent crude. On the other hand, Treasury bonds remained relatively stable. The experience of dealing with financial stress, economic downturns, and the need for government intervention are common elements with the Lehman Brothers' collapse, a pivotal event that triggered the global financial crisis in 2008.
