Wall Street’s main indices closed mixed on Tuesday, June 14, after Nasdaq recovered from an initial slide as the central bank officials assembled to discuss a new rate plan at their monthly policy conclave.

The S&P 500 fell 0.38% to 3,735.48. The Dow Jones decreased by 0.50% to 30,364.83. The NASDAQ Composite rose 0.18% to 10,828.35, and the small-cap Russell 2000 fell 0.39% to 1,707.83.

S&P fell into a bear market on Monday after significant losses in two straight sessions.

Investors anticipate the Fed might step up the accelerator to 75 basis points from its prior assessment of a half-a-point sequential increase in June and July following the May CPI inflation data.

The May CPI data released by the Labor Department last week showed that US inflation rose at an annual rate of 8.6%, registering a fresh 40-year high.

The unabated spike in inflation has recently forced many companies to lower their annual profit guidance, wielding a major blow to investors’ sentiment.

Investors worry the central bank’s aggressive rate increases might push the economy into a recession.

In a new report, the Labor Department said the producer price index (PPI), another critical gauge for inflation, increased 0.8% in May from 0.4% in April.

The May increase marked the sixth consecutive double-digit gain in PPI, although it cooled off slightly from the March level when it was 1.6%. On an annual basis, the May PPI increased by 10.8%.

Of the 11 S&P 500 segments, technology was the only segment to stay in the positive territory on Tuesday. The utility and healthcare sectors were the bottom movers..

Oracle Corporation (ORCL) stock surged 9.27% in intraday trading after its quarterly results the day before topped Wall Street estimates, driven by sales in its cloud-computing division.
