Thursday, October 21, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -101.00 0.28% 35,376 S&P 500 -10.25 0.24% 4,517 Nasdaq -22.50 0.15% 15,355 U.S. futures are down slightly overnight, as the S&P 500 index comes into the day with a 6-day win streak, as the earnings barrage continues today, with shares of TSLA and IBM slipping after quarterly results last night while media giant AT&T (T) rises early following its results. For the moment, China Evergrande debt contagion fears, inflation, Fed tapering, rising commodity prices are having no effect on global stock markets with the CBOE Volatility index (VIX) settling around its lowest levels in about 2-months. As for yesterday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average touched an all-time fresh intraday high while the S&P 500 flirted with its all-time intraday record highs (rising a 6th straight day) after strong earnings results and forecasts from healthcare companies and as banks advanced amid rising Treasury yields. The 10-Year Treasury yield spiked to 1.6730% early, a fresh five-month high sending the S&P 500 Bank Index higher for a fifth-straight day, for its fourth-straight record close. Technology underperformed as the Nasdaq Composite closed slightly lower as inflation fears crept into the market late day following comments from Federal Reserve President Quarles. In Asian markets overnight, The Nikkei Index fell -546 points (1.87%) to settle at 28,708, the Shanghai Index inched higher 7-points to 3,594 and the Hang Seng Index declined -118 points to 26,017. In Europe, the German DAX is down just a few points holding above 15,500, while the FTSE 100 slips -0.3% to just under 7,200. Market Closing Prices Yesterday The S&P 500 Index gained 16.56 points, or 0.37%, to 4,536.19 The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 152.03 points, or 0.43%, to 35,609.34 The Nasdaq Composite dropped -7.41 points, or 0.05%, to 15,121.68 The Russell 2000 Index advanced 13.85 points, or 0.61% to 2,289.77 Events Calendar for Today 8:30 AM ET Weekly Jobless Claims…est. 300K 8:30 AM EST Continuing Claims…est. 2.55M 8:30 AM ET Philly Fed Index for October…est. 25.0 10:00 AM ET Existing Home Sales MoM for September…est. 6.09M 10:00 AM ET Leading Index MoM for September…est. +0.4% 10:30 AM ET Weekly EIA Natural Gas Inventory Data Earnings Calendar: Earnings Before the Open: AAL, ALK, ALLY, AMTB, AN, BANC, BHLB, BKU, BX, CROX, DHX, DHR, DOW, EEFT, EWBC, FAF, FCX, GATX, GPC, GTLS, HOMB, HRI, IIIN, IPG, IQV, KEY, LNN, MMC, POOL, SASR, SCHN, T, TPH, TRN, TSCO, UNP, VLO, WBS Earnings After the Close: ASB, NJRI, BOOM, CE, CMG, CSL, CSTR, FFBC, GBCI, INTC, MAT, NUE, OZK, PBCT, PINE, PSMT, SAM, SNAP, SIVB, TRST, USX, VICR, WAL, WHR, WRB, WSFS Other Key Events: The European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ESGCT) Congress 2021 is taking place virtually this year from October 19-22 Macro Up/Down Last Nymex -0.53 82.89 Brent -0.95 84.87 Gold 1.90 1,788.70 EUR/USD -0.0012 1.1639 JPY/USD -0.27 113.99 10-Year Note +0.013 1.645% Sector News Breakdown Consumer Tesla Inc.

Monday, July 26, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -112.00 0.32% 34,839 S&P 500 -10.25 0.23% 4,393 Nasdaq -20.50 0.14% 15,077 Stocks are pulling back after another record high for stocks on Friday as markets ready for the biggest week of quarterly earnings (about 1/3 of the S&P 500 report this week) including mega-cap giants including Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Alphabet, Tesla, and Boeing among them. 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. In Europe, the German DAX is down over -60 points to 15,600, while the FTSE 100 dips about -0.25% to hold just above the 7,000 level. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury fell to 1.246% as investors awaited the Federal Reserve’s outlook. The FOMC 2-day meeting begins Tuesday and ends Wednesday with a policy statement/press conference from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. 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. It took 69 trading days to go from 34k to 35k, which is the longest since 29k to 30k took 218 days. The 10-year Treasury yield also had a big comeback, but ended the week around 1.29%, just below where it was last Friday (it had dropped to as low on 1.12% on Tuesday). 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 $38K. Bitcoin traded above the technical level after comments from Ark Investment Management LLC’s Cathie Wood and Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk helped boost its momentum. Prices took off yesterday after London’s City A.M. newspaper said Amazon ($AMZN) is looking to accept bitcoin payments by year-end – the story is boosting shares of Bitcoin miners, banks etc.: $SI, $MARA, $RIOT, $MSTR, $COIN.
