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. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -622 points to 27,822, the Shanghai Index remained closed for Golden Week holiday, and the Hang Seng Index gained 57 points to settle at 24,104. In Europe, the German DAX is up around60-points to 15,100, while the FTSE 100 gains around 50-points to 7,050. Crypto currencies adding to recent gains as Bitcoin tops the $50,000 level and Ethereum rises over 2% topping $3,450. Gold prices are near overnight lows as December gold futures fall -0.6% at $1,758 an ounce as the dollar edges higher and risk sentiment rising overnight.

/*============================================= = Wednesday, June 9, 2021 = =============================================*/ Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -25.00 0.07% 34,561 S&P 500 2.25 0.05% 4,228 Nasdaq 28.50 0.20% 13,839 U.S. stock futures are mixed with Dow futures slipping, S&P futures flat and Nasdaq futures looking higher as Treasury yields fall to their lowest levels in weeks (1.50% for the 10-year) ahead of key inflation data later this week. Stock averages flirted with record highs on Tuesday, as the S&P neared but could not hold its early gains (ended Tuesday at 4,227, just off its closing high on May 7 of 4,232) while the Russell 2000 neared its all-time best close as investors appear wary ahead of inflation data due on Thursday in the form of consumer prices (CPI). Consumer discretionary and energy were the best performing major S&P 500 sectors on the day, while utilities were the weakest group. A lack of clear market catalysts kept institutional investors on the sidelines, while retail traders fueled the ongoing meme stocks rally with more volatility from the likes of AMC, GME, BBBY, WKHS, BB, with new names such as CLOV and WEN added to the fray. Fear remains non-existent in the market as the CBOE volatility index (VIX) touched its lowest level in over a year. It appears for the time being the “meme stocks” are taking over from crypto as the place to be as Bitcoin prices slid. Oil prices inch higher with WTI crude above $70 per barrel for the first time since October 2018 and Bitcoin rebounds. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -102 points to 28,860, the Shanghai Index rose 11 points to 3,591 and the Hang Seng Index dipped -38 points to 28,742. In Europe, the German DAX is down about -80 points to 15,555, while the FTSE 100 slides about -40 points to 7,050. China data showed May PPI +9.0% y/y vs +8.5% poll, +6.8% in April, May CPI +1.3% y/y vs +1.6% poll, +0.9% in April (CPI highest in eight months). Chinese stocks edge higher despite the fastest factory inflation since 2008 as benign CPI suggests only limited pass-through to consumers Market Closing Prices Yesterday The S&P 500 Index inched higher 0.74 points, or 0.02%, to 4,227.26 The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell -30.42 points, or 0.09%, to 34,599.82 The Nasdaq Composite gained 43.19 points, or 0.31%, to 13,924.91 The Russell 2000 Index advanced 24.58 points, or 1.06% to 2,343.76 Events Calendar for Today 7:00 AM ET MBA Mortgage Applications Data 10:00 AM EST Wholesale Inventories for April 10:30 AM ET Weekly DOE Inventory Data Earnings Calendar: Earnings Before the Open: BF/B, $CPB, $DAKT, $LOVE, $UNFI, $VRA Earnings After the Close: $ENZ, $GEF, $GME, $KLXE, $LAKE, $OXM, $RH, $TCL, $VRNT Other Key Events: Baird Global Consumer, Technology & Services Conference 2021 (virtual), 6/8-6/10 Deutsche Bank Global Consumer Conference (virtual), 6/7-6/10 Goldman Sachs Healthcare Conference (virtual), 6/8-6/10 Goldman Sachs 25th Annual European Financials Conference (virtual), 6/8-6/10 Jefferies Healthcare Virtual Conference, 6/8-6/10 Oppenheimer Virtual Software & Semiconductor Bus Tour, 6/7-6/11 Piper Global Exchange & FinTech Conference (virtual), 6/9-6/10 REITWeek 2021 Investor Virtual Conference, 6/8-6/10 UBS Global Industrials and Transportation Conference, 6/8-6/9 Macro Up/Down Last Nymex 0.11 70.16 Brent 0.12 72.34 Gold -2.60 1,890.25 EUR/USD 0.0019 1.2192 JPY/USD -0.06 109.44 10-Year Note -0.019 1.509% World News China’s factory gate prices rose at their fastest annual pace in over 12 years in May as the producer price index (PPI) increased 9.0% from a year earlier (est. 8.5%), the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said driven by significant price increases in crude oil, iron ore and non-ferrous metals. On a monthly basis, the PPI rose 1.6%, up from a 0.9 uptick in April. China’s consumer price index (CPI) rose 1.3% in May in annual terms, the biggest increase in eight months. That was still slower than analysts’ forecast for a 1.6% increase, after a 0.9% gain in April. S. Senate passed a wide ranging $250b Bill designed to counter China & compete with China Bipartisan group meeting, Republican Senators came out of the meeting saying that they made a lot of progress, there is work to be done to reach an agreement, Manchin says a positive meeting, moving in the right direction.
