@everyone U.S. equity futures extend yesterday’s rally amid apparent progress on the debt-ceiling impasse in Washington, while in Europe, natural gas prices and power fell after Russia offered to ease Europe’s energy crisis as U.S. stocks are looking at a stronger open. Yesterday, the S&P 500 erased a -1.3% loss in its biggest reversal since February to settle modestly higher as investors grew more optimistic that congressional Democrats and Republicans could reach a deal to avert a government debt default with October 18th, the date Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has estimated the government will run out of money and not be able to service its existing debts, if the ceiling remains in place. China markets and U.S. listed Chinese stocks (BABA, BIDU, JD) are rising as President Biden and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed to hold a virtual summit by the end of the year. Late yesterday, top U.S. Senate Republican Mitch McConnell said his party would support an extension of the federal debt ceiling into December. The offer could provide an off-ramp to a months-long standoff between President Joe Biden’s Democrats and McConnell’s Republicans, who had been expected on Wednesday to block a third attempt by Senate Democrats to raise the $28.4 trillion debt ceiling. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 149 points to 27,678, the Shanghai Index remained closed for its Golden Week holiday, and the Hang Seng Index surged 735 points, or over 3% to settle at 24,701. The picture remains bright in Europe as well with the German DAX up 175 points to 15,150 and the FTSE 100 rising 67 points or nearly 1% to 7,060. The monthly nonfarm payroll report also in focus tomorrow. Market Closing Prices Yesterday · The S&P 500 Index gained 6.51 points, or 0.15%, to 4,363.55 · The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 90.49 points, or 0.26%, to 34,416.99 · The Nasdaq Composite dropped -64.79 points, or 0.44%, to 14,501.91 · The Russell 2000 Index declined -26.67 points, or 1.19% to 2,214.96 Events Calendar for Today · 7:30 AM ET Challenger Layoffs for Sept · 8:30 AM ET Weekly Jobless Claims · 8:30 AM EST Continuing Claims · 10:30 AM ET Weekly EIA Natural Gas Inventory Data · 3:00 AM ET Consumer Credit for Aug Earnings Calendar: · Earnings Before the Open: CAG, HELE, LW · Earnings After the Close: ACCD Other Key Events: · China’s Caixin Services PMI for Sept · Piper Global Chemicals M&A Conference (virtual), 10/7 · International Conference on Molecular Targets & Cancer Therapeutics (virtual), 10/7-10/10 Consumer · Costco ($COST) reported net sales of $19.50 billion for the retail month of September, the five weeks ended October 3, 2021, an increase of 15.8% from $16.84 billion last year; Total Company Comparable Sales rose 14.3%, Sept E-Commerce Sales rose 10.6%, Sept total co.

Tuesday, August 24, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 59.00 0.17% 35,340 S&P 500 8.25 0.19% 4,484 Nasdaq 45.50 0.30% 15,350 U.S. futures are looking higher, adding to the record setting performances by the S&P 500 and Nasdaq yesterday on further vaccine approval optimism yesterday, while China stocks rebound for the first time in 2-weeks. Last week’s stock market pullback (if you can call 1% a pullback) is all but a memory as stocks surged on Monday, with the S&P 500 hitting an intraday record high along with the Nasdaq notching another new record close. Helping positive sentiment was the U.S. FDA granting full approval to the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer Inc and its partner BioNTech SE. Investors were also looking ahead to the Federal Reserve’s Jackson Hole symposium, which gets underway later this week. Energy led the way among S&P 500 sectors, rising 3.8% as crude prices rose about 5%, snapping its 7-day losing streak from last week, while defensive sectors such as utilities lagged. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index jumped 237 points to 27,732, the Shanghai Index gains 37 points to 3,514 and the Hang Seng Index jumps 618 points to 25,727. In Europe, the German DAX rises over 50 points above 15,900, while the FTSE 100 is down a few points holding around the 7,100 level. The big event for markets this week will take place in Jackson Hole at the economic symposium of the Federal Reserve. While some officials have stated plans to scale back stimulus, threats from the Delta variant have raised questions about whether they will hold off on signaling a taper timeline on $120B/month in bond buying. Market Closing Prices Yesterday The S&P 500 Index jumped 37.86 points, or 0.85%, to 4,479.53 The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 215.63 points, or 0.61%, to 35,335.71 The Nasdaq Composite spiked 227.99 points, or 1.55%, to 14,942.65 The Russell 2000 Index advanced 40.70 points, or 1.88% to 2,208.30 Events Calendar for Today 7:45 AM ET ICSC Weekly Retail Sales 8:55 AM ET Johnson/Redbook Weekly Sales 4:30 PM ET API Weekly Inventory Data 10:00 AM ET New Home Sales MoM for July 10:00 AM ET Richmond Fed Manufacturing for Aug Earnings Calendar: Earnings Before the Open: AAP, CTRN, IMBI Earnings After the Close: ELMD, HEI, INTU, JWN, PSEC, SCSC, TOL, URBN, XPOF Other Key Events: American Association of Neurological Surgeons, 8/21-8/25, in Orlando, FL UBS China Telco, Media, Internet Virtual Conference 2021, 8/23-8/27 Truist Texas Bank Virtual Summit, 8/23-8/24 Craig Hallum Online Gaming Conference 8/24 Piper Sandler MedTech and Diagnostics California Bus Tour (virtual), 8/24-8/26 Raymond James Diversified Industrials Virtual Conference, 8/24-8/25 Macro Up/Down Last Nymex 1.10 66.74 Brent 1.23 69.98 Gold -0.30 1,805.15 EUR/USD -0.0006 1.1739 JPY/USD 0.03 109.73 10-Year Note +0.012 1.267% World News The House of Representatives scrapped a planned vote on Monday to advance two key economic proposals of President Biden’s $4.1T economic agenda.

Tuesday, August 17, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -221.00 0.62% 35,313 S&P 500 -21.25 0.49% 4,452 Nasdaq -59.50 0.39% 15,075 U.S. equity-index futures are looking lower this morning, while global stocks have fallen for a second day amid several market concerns. U.S. major averages hit record highs (S&P 500 and Dow record high closes for a 5th straight session) on Monday as investors moved into defensive sectors (Healthcare, Staples, Utilities) and stocks recovered from losses earlier in the session, shaking off glum economic data out of China and the U.S., but start the day on shaky ground yet again. Several factors playing into the morning decline including: 1) concerns that more lockdowns could be needed to contain the coronavirus pandemic; 2) Treasury yields fall ahead of an address by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on the health of the world’s largest economy; 3) Dow component Home Depot (HD) reports a top and bottom-line beat, but weaker-than-expected comp sales drag shares lower; 4) Federal Reserve Bank President Eric Rosengren said Monday he could be prepared to begin rolling back economic stimulus this fall. But he said he wouldn’t boost interest rates until the employment picture improves; 5) China markets tumble following another regulatory crackdown after China published detailed rules to tackle unfair competition and companies’ handling of critical data; the draft regulations ban unfair competition and restrict the use of user data. Investors were also digesting news from Afghanistan, where thousands of civilians desperate to flee the country thronged Kabul airport after the Taliban seized the capital. Asian stocks retreat for fourth day as the Hang Seng and Shanghai Composite lose ground after China issues draft rules targeting unfair online competition. The Kosdaq sinks 2.3% as Korean selloff resumes following Monday’s holiday. The Nikkei Index fell -98 points to 27,424, the Shanghai Index tumbled -70 points (or 2%) to 3,446 and the Hang Seng Index declined -435 points (1.66%) to 25,745. In Europe, the German DAX is down around -40 points to 15,885, while the FTSE 100 is up a few points to 7,165. Wal-Mart earnings expected later this morning as well. Market Closing Prices Yesterday The S&P 500 Index gained 11.71 points, or 0.26%, to 4,479.71 The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 110.02 points, or 0.31%, to 35,625.40 The Nasdaq Composite slumped -29.13 points, or 0.20%, to 14,793.76 The Russell 2000 Index declined -19.69 points, or 0.89% to 2,203.41 Events Calendar for Today 7:45 AM ET ICSC Weekly Retail Sales 8:30 AM ET Advance Retail Sales MoM for July…est.
