Thursday, October 28, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 54.00 0.15% 35,443 S&P 500 11.25 0.26% 4,556 Nasdaq 74.50 0.47% 15.662 U.S. futures are looking at a rebound after a late day swoon erased record gains for stocks, as markets again await another earnings barrage, with yesterday and today the two busiest days of the quarter. Drama out of Washington D.C. also adding to the volatility as investors remain hopeful on a spending bill. As for Wednesday, a midday all-time high for the Nasdaq 100 was marred by a late day sell-off in U.S. stocks, as the S&P 500 and Dow each retreated from records set just the previous day, led by weakness in energy stocks as oil prices tumbled from 7-year highs and long-dated Treasury yields also slumped, with the 30-year falling as much as 10bps below 2%. Corporate earnings have generally been better-than-expected, but constant reminders about rising costs, supply-chain issues, and labor shortages on conference calls brings into question the strength of markets going forward. Couple that with expectations for the Fed to begin its asset tapering plans in November and chances of interest rate hikes in mid-2022 to help prevent inflation getting further out of hand remains a market concern. Shares of Dow components McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and Microsoft rallied behind strong earnings. In fact, the Nasdaq outperformed behind large cap winners (TSLA, GOOGL MSFT, AMZN), though breadth was decisively negative and SmallCaps plunged with the Russell 200 falling nearly 2%. President Biden’s infrastructure and social-spending plans still remain “up-in-the-air” which also adds uncertainty. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell about 1% to 28,820, the Shanghai Index slipped -1.23% to 3.518 and the Hang Seng Index dipped about -0.25% to 25,555. In Europe, the German DAX is down -0.15% at 15,680, while the FTSE 100 is also down roughly -0.2% at 7,240.

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.
