The stock market is vulnerable to a government shutdown. Both the White House and Wall Street believed the economy could weather a temporary shutdown, but warned that the dangers would increase the longer the disruption lasted.
The current level of mortgage interest rates is unprecedented since the year 2000. This has led to mortgage applications reaching levels not seen in nearly 27 years. The Mortgage Bankers Association’s seasonally adjusted index showed a 1.3% decrease in the number of mortgage applications from the previous week. The volume was down 25.5% from the same week a year ago.
Despite a better open on Wednesday, U.S. stock markets are still recovering from a poor Tuesday as September waddles into its last trading days. Over 1% was lost across all three major indices. Worst day for the Dow since March. Everything fell off, and that was just how the day went.
Americans are barely scraping by after a lengthy era of rising inflation and increased interest rates. New research from LendingClub shows that, as of August, 60% of individuals reported living paycheck to paycheck.
Target is closing nine stores across four states due to rising thefts and organized retail crime that threaten the safety of employees and customers. Three stores in the Bay Area of California, three stores in Portland, Oregon, two stores in Seattle, and one store in New York City are shutting on October 21. Target has stated that even after the store closures, it will still have a total of 150 locations.
Due to the potential of engine compartment fires, Hyundai and Kia are recalling almost 3.4 million vehicles in the United States and advising owners to park them outside.
