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.

Tuesday, May 25, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 72.00 0.21% 34,424 S&P 500 11.25 0.26% 4,204 Nasdaq 56.50 0.42% 13,692 Stock futures are looking higher, adding to yesterday’s gains as the yield on the 10-year slips back below 1.6%, easing inflation fears for a second straight day. Concerns over persistent inflation have softened the last few days with more Fed speakers just yesterday (Bullard, Bostic, Brainard) again all said prices will rise in coming months but all see it as transitory. Crypto currency volatility continues as well, with many (Bitcoin back under 37K, Ethereum) pulling back after yesterday’s rebound. On the agenda today (in a relatively quiet period for news with earnings winding down) attention turns to several housing data reports with Case-Shiller Home Price Index, FHFA House Price Index and New Home Sales, while consumer confidence figures will offer some insight into current business and employment conditions. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 189 points to 28,553, the Shanghai Index jumped 84 points to 3,581 and the Hang Seng Index surged 498 points to 28,910, In Europe, the German DAX is up about 110 points to 15,550, while the FTSE 100 is flat around 7,050. U.S. stocks surged all day on Monday, with both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq jumping more than 1% as a retreat in U.S. Treasury yields helped lift high multiple and mega cap technology stocks (AAPL, AMZN, FB, GOOGL) as fears about inflation took a back seat as investors again bought the dip after mixed stock reaction last week. Yields on the 10-year Treasury bond hit a two-week low, around 1.6%. Markets exhibited no concern on reports President’s Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will likely be smaller than hoped as the two sides remain wide apart.
