U.S. futures are edging higher, looking to add to the gains from Thursday, but major averages remain on track to snap their 5-week winning streak after a sharp pullback Wednesday off all-time highs due to rising inflation fears renewed concerns the economy is going to quick too fast and the Fed may need to “pump the brakes” sooner than later with interest rate hikes (fed fund futures now pointing to a June ’22 star). The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq ended higher on Thursday, boosted by chipmakers after high inflation numbers dampened investor sentiment and put the brakes on a streak of record closing highs. U.S. Treasury bond yields remain calm after reopening (closed yesterday for Veteran’s Day), with the 10-year yield still under 1.6%. European stocks were steady with U.S. futures, while Asian shares rose at the end of a volatile week. Meanwhile, U.S. officials have warned European Union counterparts that Russia may be weighing a potential invasion of Ukraine, according to multiple people familiar with the matter. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 1.1% to 29,609, the Shanghai Index gained +0.18% to 3,539, and the Hang Seng Index gained about 0.32% to settle at 25,327. In Europe, the German DAX is up about +0.2% to 16,110, while the FTSE 100 is down roughly-0.4% at 7,350. Market Closing Prices Yesterday The S&P 500 Index gained 2.56 points, or 0.06%, to 4,649.27 The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell -158.71 points, or 0.44%, to 35,921.23 The Nasdaq Composite jumped 81.58 points, or 0.52%, to 15,704.28 The Russell 2000 Index advanced 19.56 points, or 0.82% to 2,409.14 Events Calendar for Today 10:00 AM ET University of Michigan Confidence, Nov-P 10:00 AM ET JOLTs Job Openings for September 1:00 PM EST Baker Hughes Weekly rig count data Earnings Calendar: Earnings Before the Open: BKKT, EMAN, HYZN, MOTS, MRAM, NXTD, PLXP, ROLL, SOHO, SPB, TH, VIVO Other Key Events: American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases Meeting, 11/12-11/15 ($virtual) American Academy of Ophthalmology 2021 Conference, 11/12-11/15, New Orleans Baird 51st Annual Global Industrial Conference, 11/9-11/12 ($virtual) Jefferies 2nd Annual Global Interactive Entertainment Conference, 11/11-11/12 ($virtual) Morgan Stanley Global Chemicals, Agriculture & Packaging Conference, 11/10-11/12 ($virtual) REITWorld 2021 Annual Conference, 11/9-11/12 ($virtual) Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer, 11/10-11/14, in Washington D.C.

Goldman trimmed its 2021 growth forecast by 10 basis points, to 5.6%, while lowering its 2022 estimate by 40 basis point to 4%, adding that consumer spending is likely to be held back by pandemic uncertainty and a softer-than-expected fiscal response from the Biden administration. · Taiwan will keep bolstering its defenses to ensure nobody can force them to accept the path China has laid down that offers neither freedom nor democracy, President Tsai Ing-wen said on Sunday – Reuters Sector News Breakdown Consumer · Southwest Airlines ($LUV) cancelled 808 flights yesterday and has cancelled another 1,006 today, according to data from Flightaware.com.

There was speculation that some Southwest employees have called in sick in a form of protest over the mandatory vaccination rules in place, which have been unconfirmed · Hasbro ($HAS) said CEO Brian Goldner will take a medical leave of absence, effective immediately, slightly more than a year after disclosing that he was undergoing continued medical care following treatment for cancer in 2014. Energy, Industrials and Materials · Honeywell ($HON) raised its business outlook for jet deliveries on Sunday as travel restrictions ease as they now see 7,400 new business jet deliveries worth $238 bln over the next 10 years, up 1% from the same 10-year forecast a year ago. Business jet operators surveyed by Honeywell reported a sharp increase in their used jet purchase plans, 12% above last year’s report · Emerson Electric ($EMR) plans to merge two of its software businesses with Aspen Technology (AZPN) in a roughly $11B deal that values Aspen at around $160 a share, as shareholders would receive $87 and 0.42 share of the combined company for each share they currently own – WSJ https://on.wsj.com/3FxyVx7 · Cleveland-Cliffs ($CLF) agrees to acquire Ferrous Processing and Trading, one of the largest processors and distributors of prime ferrous scrap in the U.S., in a deal with an enterprise value of ~$775M. · Tutor Perini’s ($TPC) joint-venture signed a contract valued at ~$178 million by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, for the Friant-Kern Canal Middle Reach Capacity Correction Phase I project in central California, southeast of Visalia.

But the market has changed its view, partly owing to an uptick in rates. On top of that, Prudential, whose businesses include life insurance, variable annuities, and asset management, is getting some credit for more-consistent earnings in recent years.

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 130.00 0.38% 34,000 S&P 500 12.00 0.27% 4,303 Nasdaq 43.50 0.30% 14,506 U.S, futures are trying to bounce after another brutal Monday on Wall Street that saw broad based weakness with the Nasdaq Composite hitting its lowest levels since late June, falling for the 6th time in the last 7-trading sessions and as the S&P 500 dropped over 1.2%, now more than 5% off its all-time highs, led by another decline in tech stocks. Bespoke noted that the NY FANG+ index closed below its 200-DMA today for the first time in 378 trading days and is now down more than 9% from its Sept. 7 record close. Many of the same concerns remain Tuesday, with a global energy crunch lifting oil prices to the highest in seven years, inflation momentum accelerating amid supply chain disruptions and soaring input costs, and the specter of a U.S. default as lawmakers continue to haggle over the extension of the country’s $28.4 trillion debt ceiling. The U.S. 10-Year Treasury yield ended a three-day losing streak on Monday as growth stocks plunged and concerns about a potential U.S. government debt default offered another reason for caution. The Dow, &P 500, and Nasdaq Composite ended the day down around 4%-7% from their recent closing highs.

If the two sides can’t agree on the bill that Democrats recently attached to the federal debt ceiling limit, the country could see a partial gov’t shutdown by Friday. Politico reported that Democrats are hinting they could be willing to drop the debt ceiling from their government funding package this week in order to avoid a government shutdown. The 10-year Treasury yield is up more than 4 basis points to 1.53% after topping 1.55% earlier while the 5-year is setting new records for the year and is up 2 bps to 1.02%.

The move higher is coming as concerns about inflation rise, especially in commodities as oil is up again, with WTI futures above $76 per barrel and Brent futures topping $80. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -56 points to 30,183, the Shanghai Index gained 19 points to 3,602 and the Hang Seng Index climbed 291 points to 24,500.

Brent crude gains 2.1% to $78.81, sending the energy sector soaring and WTI crude topped $75 per barrel, also best levels in about 3-years. Durable goods orders posted their biggest increase since May, rising 1.8% for August and handily beating economists. Notably, small-capitalization stocks advanced sharply on the session, aided by a gain in energy shares which themselves were helped by a rally in crude-oil prices. U.S. natural gas futures soared 11% to a seven-year high as record global gas prices kept demand for U.S. liquefied natural gas ($LNG) exports strong. On its second to last day as the front-month, gas futures for October delivery rose 56.6 cents, or 11.0%, to settle at $5.706 per million British thermal units (highest close since February 2014).

@everyone Monday, September 20, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -529.00 1.54% 33,933 S&P 500 -56.75 1.28% 4,365 Nasdaq -154.00 1.00% 15,172 U.S. indices are trading down over 1% in pre-market trading and touching their lowest levels in almost 2 months this morning as large Chinese real estate developer Evergrande’s debt crisis is weighing on Asian markets and several macroeconomic factors are making investors wary. The Federal Reserve’s two-day September meeting begins tomorrow where they may lay out plans to begin tapering bond purchases and its quarterly dot plot will provide a forecast on when the central bankers expect to hike interest rates from their current levels of 0-0.25%. Additionally, the federal government is currently facing the threat of running out of money October 1 unless Congress raises the debt ceiling, and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend imploring Congress to raise it as the Treasury will exhaust its cash reserves and borrowing capacity sometime next month if no action is taken. Today’s move lower comes after the S&P closed below its 50-day moving average for the 1st time since June 18th on Friday with materials and technology companies struggling. Late Friday, an FDA panel decided not to recommend a booster for the Pfizer vaccine for people 16 years and older by a vote of 16-3 saying there was not enough data to determine the step-up effectiveness of the third shot. However, the panel unanimously approved a narrower vote of authorizing booster dose of Pfizer/BioNTech covid-19 vaccine at least 6 months after full vaccination for people 65 and older and those at high risk for severe disease (a narrower approval than markets were hoping for). The University of Michigan’s preliminary sentiment index edged up in August, but buying conditions for household durables, homes and motor vehicles all fell to the lowest in decades due to complaints about high prices. The dollar rose while precious metals mostly fell, as gold posted a second straight weekly drop ahead of the FOMC meeting later this week. A potential hike in corporate taxes could eat into earnings also weigh on markets, with leading Democrats seeking to raise the top tax rate on corporations to 26.5% from the current 21%. In Asian markets, the Hang Seng Index is plunging 821 points while Tokyo and Shanghai markets are closed for holiday. In Europe, the German DAX is down 367 points and the FTSE 100 is lower by 118 points.

Friday, September 3, 2021 The long holiday weekend is upon us (back-to-school), with U.S. stock futures steadily higher ahead of the all-important August payroll report, a closely watched data point to see when the Federal Reserve might unveil its plans to begin withdrawing its massive pandemic-era stimulus. Economists are looking for a reading of +728K nonfarm payrolls (vs. +943K in July), +665K private payrolls (vs. +703K in July), and +25K manufacturing payrolls (vs. +27K in July); the unemployment rate expected to drop to 5.2% from 5.4%, while average hourly earnings estimated to rise +0.3% MoM and +4.0% Yoy. Stocks pared gains after the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite notched all-time highs Thursday with energy and health-care shares leading the charge, as oil prices touched their highest levels in about a month back above $70 per barrel. Yesterday bright spots included Smallcaps and Transports as well with tech mixed. It now remains to be seen if markets will put the pedal-to-the-metal, or sharply reverse, with Friday’s much anticipated August employment report. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index jumped 584 points to 29,128, the Shanghai Index slipped -15 points to 3,581, and the Hang Seng Index dropped -188 points to 25,901 to close out the week. In Europe, the German DAX is up around 20-points to 15,860, while the FTSE 100 gains about 10 to 7,175, another strong week for European and Asian markets.
