Friday, September 3, 2021 The long holiday weekend is upon us (back-to-school), with U.S. stock futures steadily higher ahead of the all-important August payroll report, a closely watched data point to see when the Federal Reserve might unveil its plans to begin withdrawing its massive pandemic-era stimulus. Economists are looking for a reading of +728K nonfarm payrolls (vs. +943K in July), +665K private payrolls (vs. +703K in July), and +25K manufacturing payrolls (vs. +27K in July); the unemployment rate expected to drop to 5.2% from 5.4%, while average hourly earnings estimated to rise +0.3% MoM and +4.0% Yoy. Stocks pared gains after the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite notched all-time highs Thursday with energy and health-care shares leading the charge, as oil prices touched their highest levels in about a month back above $70 per barrel. Yesterday bright spots included Smallcaps and Transports as well with tech mixed. It now remains to be seen if markets will put the pedal-to-the-metal, or sharply reverse, with Friday’s much anticipated August employment report. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index jumped 584 points to 29,128, the Shanghai Index slipped -15 points to 3,581, and the Hang Seng Index dropped -188 points to 25,901 to close out the week. In Europe, the German DAX is up around 20-points to 15,860, while the FTSE 100 gains about 10 to 7,175, another strong week for European and Asian markets.

/*============================================= = MORNING UPDATE - Thursday 05/27/21 = =============================================*/ Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -9.00 0.03% 34,271 S&P 500 -8.25 0.20% 4,184 Nasdaq -54.50 0.40% 13,646 Stock futures are edging slightly lower ahead of a busy morning of economic data, as investors await monthly GDP (2nd estimate for Q1 with estimate about 6.4% – in-line with prior reading), jobless claims data, durable goods and pending home sales. The narrative remains the same day after day as the U.S. economy continues to show improvement/rebound from pandemic lows, which has raised concerns over rising inflation and fears the Fed could pull back on its asset purchases/monetary policy – but most official have said over the last week they don’t feel it will be necessary to change course since rising price pressures likely will just be transitory. Market fears remain non-existent again as the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) comes into the day below the 18 level (was above 27 just over a week ago). In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -93 points to 28,549, the Shanghai Index rose 15 points to 3,608 and the Hang Seng Index fell -52 points to 29,113. In Europe, the German DAX is down over 40 points to 15,400, while the FTSE 100 is down a few points to 7,015. Stocks edged higher on Wednesday, with the SmallCap Russell 2000 index leading (up nearly 2%), and the tech heavy Nasdaq Composite, as markets were once again spurred by further reassuring talk from Federal Reserve officials that spiking inflation will be “transitory” with Treasury yields remaining lower. Fed Vice Chair Randal Quarles was the latest Fed official to ease worries about inflation. Outside of SmallCap and tech, momentum related sectors fueled the rally with social media “meme” stocks surging ($GME, $AMC, $EXPR, $KOSS), along with electric vehicle names and Bitcoin leveraged stocks.
