Stock prices and Federal Reserve interest rate cut expectations were moving together until recently. Now there is a divergence due to a change, in that market participants believe the Federal Reserve might postpone or slow the pace of interest rate reductions, but the stock market has continued up. The question for many is whether the stock market will maintain its upward climb or adjust downwards with the change in rate cut expectations.
