Thursday, August 12, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 40.00 0.12% 35,413 S&P 500 2.25 0.05% 4,442 Nasdaq 5.50 0.04% 15,025 Another day, another record high for the Dow and S&P 500 as futures are pointing to a slightly higher open, building on the ongoing upside momentum that pushed the S&P 500 to its 45th all-time high Wednesday. Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 are coming off all-time bests as consumer prices (CPI) data indicated U.S. inflation was in-line with estimates, raising hopes that growth may have peaked, while sectors tied to economic growth such as industrials, materials and metals advanced a second day on the heels of the passage of a large infrastructure bill. The July consumer price index increased 0.5% last month after climbing 0.9% in June, though on a YoY basis was above 5% again (ahead of today’s PPI data at 8:30 AM ET). Meanwhile, two Fed members (George and Kaplan) each said the central bank should announce its timeline to reduce its massive bondholding, with Kaplan calling for it to begin next month, with tapering to begin in October. Healthcare was also a drag on markets as S&P components MRNA and PFE fell after the drug regulator of the European Union said it was looking into new possible side-effects of mRNA COVID-19 shots. Asian shares dropped for the first time this week as China stepped up scrutiny of its insurance technology platforms while European stocks drift on mixed earnings results. The Nikkei Index slipped -55 points to 28,015, the Shanghai Index slid -7 points to 3,524, and the Hang Seng Index dropped -142 points (0.535) to settle at 26,517. In Europe, the German DAX is up over 60 points to 15,888, while the FTSE 100 is down a few points at 7,210.

Sentiment was hurt by China’s widening crackdown of the technology sector and a statement from Beijing that the U.S.-China relationship was “now in a stalemate and faces serious difficulties” as high-level talks began. The comment sunk Asian markets as The Nikkei Index rose 285 points to 27,833, but the Shanghai Index tumbled -82 points to 3,467 and the Hang Seng Index plunged -1,129 points (or 4.13%) to settle at 26,192.

Stock averages posted strong returns last week as the S&P 500 rose 1.96%, the Dow rose 1.08%, and the Nasdaq added 2.84% in a big comeback (and then some) as the major indices rode a rally back into record territory, posting four-straight up days after a big selloff to start the week. The S&P, Nasdaq and Dow closed at all-time highs to make it four winning weeks out of five with the Dow ending above 35,000.

Bitcoin prices rose above its 50-day moving average on Saturday for the first time since May 12. It rose again Sunday, its sixth consecutive day of gains, to above $38K.
