Investment bank JPMorgan (NYSE: JPM) has started slashing prices left and right with the more recent ones aimed at FAANG stocks.
Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar slipped lower against its peers, oil prices jumped and investors received positive news from China related to Covid travel restrictions as market participants are looking for sparks to ignite a possible rally.
Further, Central Banks worldwide promised to lift interest rates to fight inflation, withdraw liquidity to decrease demand, and tame consumer price increases, which in turn hit growth metrics and stoked recession fears.
All of these developments possibly point to the JPMorgan price cuts they just announced for the growth stocks.
