Stock Market Today: S&P Suffers Worst First Half Since 1970
A broad down day for the major indexes put the cherry on the melted sundae that was the stock market's first half of trading in 2022.

The S&P 500 declined 0.9% on Thursday to 3,785, securing a 20.6% decline for the year's first six months - its worst such performance since bombing out by 21% during 1970's first half.

Whether we get the same remains to be seen, but Dan Wantrobski, technical strategist and associate director of research at Janney Montgomery Scott - who provided us with a potential market-bottom target yesterday - notes that the market is pretty oversold right now, and that we could at least see a short-term bounce.

"If one materializes, continue to watch for initial resistance first toward 4,100-4,200, then closer to the 4,400-4,500 zone [after that]," he says.

But for now, investors are licking their wounds.

"The S&P 500 reached an all-time high on the very first trading day of the year, but then promptly suffered through one of its toughest first-half performances ever, along with a pummeling in most major financial markets," says Douglas Porter, chief economist for BMO Capital Markets. "The challenging environment started and ended with inflation - and the increasingly urgent central bank campaign to control it - further aggravated by the Ukraine invasion in late February."

Now? Energy-driven supply shocks are forcing global growth expectations lower even as inflation remains red-hot.
