Recent market gains come amid Fed tone change, Fundstrat’s Tom Lee says
Tom Lee thinks the skepticism around the early November rally may be unwarranted.
“These gains have come on the heels of a change in tone from the Fed (‘dovish’) and at a time when economic data remains supportive of a soft landing (cooling inflation),” wrote Lee, head of research at Fundstrat.
“In terms of market internals, there has been a substantial improvement with better market breadth and continued follow through,” he added.
The S&P 500 is riding its longest daily winning streak since 2021. It’s also up more than 4% so far in November.

Japan business sentiment improves as Reuters Tankan survey shows rise in November
Confidence among large Japanese manufacturers rose in November, according to the Reuters Tankan survey, which measures business sentiment among large Japanese companies.
This is the first time that the index improved since August, while service-sector mood rose for a second month.
Manufacturers’ sentiment index rose to +6 in November versus +4 in October, and the service-sector index was at +27 above +24 last month.
The survey underscored a patchy economic recovery and a challenging outlook for Japan manufacturers.
It also mirrored a similar improvement seen in the Bank of Japan’s closely watched quarterly tankan survey.
A positive figure means that optimistic respondents outnumber pessimists, and vice versa.
