On Friday, Wall Street experienced a notable downturn as investors responded to the news of a strike by the United Auto Workers against leading automakers Ford (NYSE:F), General Motors (NYSE:GM), and Stellantis (NYSE:STLA). The market’s reaction also reflected the anticipation of the Federal Reserve’s decision due next week.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average saw a significant drop, losing nearly 290 points or 0.8% to close around 34,619. This decline was mirrored across other major indexes, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite falling 0.8% and 1.6% respectively.

Despite these declines, the Dow managed to secure a slight weekly gain of 0.1%. However, the downward pressure pushed the S&P 500 into negative territory for the week with a drop of 0.2%, while the Nasdaq ended the week down by 0.4%.

The labor unrest in the automotive sector is perceived as a crucial factor influencing investor sentiment. The United Auto Workers union represents a significant portion of the workforce at Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis. Their decision to strike could have wide-ranging implications for these companies and the broader market.

Investors are also eagerly awaiting the Federal Reserve’s decision next week, which could provide further clarity on the direction of monetary policy in light of recent economic developments. The market’s performance in the coming week will likely be influenced by these two significant events.
