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.

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.
