Tesla lower on Wall Street after advisory cut

The overall mood on Wall Street remained cautious after three consecutive losses. Investors reacted to a series of interest rate hikes by central banks. For example, in the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Norway, interest rates continue to rise in the fight against hyperinflation.

Interest rates have also been raised in Turkey for the first time in two years. There the interest was raised from 8.5 percent to 15 percent. With a significant interest rate hike, the new governor of the Turkish Central Bank wants to normalize interest rate policy in the country. Earlier, under pressure from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, interest rates were cut despite rising inflation in the country.

In a statement to Congress, the chairman of the US Federal Reserve said the fight against inflation still has a long way to go and interest rates in the US need to be raised a little more.
