CBOE's Weekly Market Recap: Oct. 3-7

CBOE's Weekly Market Recap: Oct. 3-7

The market experienced a slight breather last week from the rapid decline that preceded the week prior. 

Cboe Global Markets Inc. CBOE reports that all the exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and indices recorded in this series experienced a price increase last week. France’s Lyxor CAC 40 ETF is the only exception, recording a decline of 4%. 

The cryptocurrency market has largely mirrored its traditional counterparts, experiencing increases in Bitcoin BTC/USD, Ethereum ETH/USD and Solana SOL/USD — all of which have experienced very little change over the past three weeks. 

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released information on nonfarm payrolls in September. The U.S. uses nonfarm payrolls as a measure of the number of workers in the U.S. excluding farm workers and workers considered on the periphery of general economic activity. September’s report saw the U.S. economy add 263,000 nonfarm jobs last month, the least since April of last year but more than consensus estimates of 250,000. 

The consensus beat was not enough to revive investors’ bullish sentiment; the S&P 500 and other major indices reacted negatively to the news, nearly erasing the three days of positive closes experienced between Oct. 3 and Oct. 5. 

Tesla Inc. TSLA wins chart of the week following a record-shattering delivery announcement that disappointed analysts’ consensus estimates.

Chart Of The Week: TSLA

Shares of Tesla Inc., the world’s most famous electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, declined 10 points overnight — a 4% drop — following news that the company missed analysts’ estimates for car deliveries.

Despite delivering 343,830 in the three months to September, a company record, Tesla’s deliveries came 7% short of analysts’ forecasts, a mismatch that sent the company’s stock plummeting. Since the news on Oct. 3, Tesla’s stock has largely continued its downward trajectory, closing at $223 per share and recording a 15% drop in five days.

According to some sources, the plummet in Tesla’s stock price speaks to concerns beyond the company’s delivery miss. While shortcomings in delivery estimates could have been pegged to supply-chain issues before, this time they reportedly cannot. The point on investors' minds is the seemingly waning demand for Tesla’s cars. 

Major Cryptocurrencies

  • Bitcoin increased by 2.07% since the previous week, nearing its yearly low.
  • Ethereum increased by 3.68% since the previous week. 
  • Solana increased by 2.71% since the previous week, holding above the key $30 price tag.
