June’s all-important jobs report and minutes from the Federal Reserve’s last policy-setting meeting are expected to highlight a holiday-shortened trading week ahead.
Sea's shares had declined in line with the continued fall in the Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 index. Year to date, the Nasdaq has fallen close to 30% while the bellwether S&P 500 has fallen by 20.2%, putting both indices firmly in a bear market. It didn't help that Sea Limited also released a downbeat set of earnings for its 2022 first quarter.
The stock market just wrapped up its worst first half in more than 50 years. The benchmark S&P 500 index is down 21% so far in 2022, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite index is down by 30%. And many of the most widely held stocks in the market are down by 50% or more this year, especially those of fast-growing businesses.
