US equities sink

On Thursday, American stock indexes sank after the Fed dared to have the base rate increased, which is generally in line with expectations of investors. Moreover, traders hope for some acceleration of the rate lifts in the nearer months.

That’s totally controversial to the statement of the key US bank - the major US financial institution is on the verge of holding two more rate lifts this year instead of the one anticipated previously.

Lifting the base rate by a quarter of a percentage point to about 1.75-2.00% the Fed also ruined the previous pledge to keep its rates quite low for a long time with the aim of stimulating the American economy.

After the Fed’s announcement US equities demonstrated high volatility, although finished the trading day near the session minimums, with most industry indices S&P going down. Additionally, the CBOE Volatility Index, being a gauge of market volatility, tacked on.

The Dow Jones index decreased by 0.47% hitting 25.201.2, the S&P 500 index inched down by 0.40% coming up with an outcome of 2.775.63, the Nasdaq Composite index declined by 0.11%, sinking to 7.695, 70.

As for the index of the financial sector of S&P, it inched down by about 0.3%.

The equities of telecom as well as media companies mostly soared due to the fact that AT&T Inc was granted the official approval of the court for the takeover of Time Warner Inc, and the deal was worth  $85 billion.

The shares of HBO Time Warner, owning HBO, went up 1.8%, AT&T dipped 6.2%, bringing the S&P sector's telecom services sector down about 4.5%.

Other media and telecom companies, including CBS Corp, Discovery Inc and SprintCorp ascended.

Twenty-First Century Fox securities edged up 0.2%. In addition to this, Comcast shares went down by about 0.2%.
