NEW YORK: A gauge of global stocks fell on Friday to end the trading week on a down note after five straight sessions of gains, while the dollar dipped against a basket of major currencies after soft data on U.S. business activity.
Wall Street posted modest losses in early trading but declines on the S&P 500 accelerated as Big Tech names such as Meta META.O and Alphabet GOOGL.O lost ground in the wake of earnings from Snap Inc SNAP.N, which plunged 39.08%. Defensive sectors such as utilities .SPLRCU and consumer staples .SPLRCS were among the few advancers.
"Every rally we have had during this bear market, there have been a number of sharp rallies and then they fade and we set new lows and that has been a pretty consistent pattern here," said Tim Ghriskey, senior portfolio strategist at Ingalls & Snyder in New York.
"Everybody is looking for the turn, everybody is trying to guess at when we get a sustained rally, and everybody is hoping for one, but to me there is still a lot of unknown ahead of us."
With 106 of the S&P 500 companies having reported earnings through Friday morning, 75.5% have topped analyst expectations, below the 81% beat rate over the past four quarters, according to Refinitiv data.,

S&P Global on Friday said its preliminary U.S. Composite PMI Output Index had tumbled far more than expected to 47.5 this month from a final reading of 52.3 in June, the first contraction in almost two years.
