Monday, October 18, 2021 U.S. equity futures are looking lower after posting strong gains last week, with oil prices extending their near-term rally into a ninth consecutive week, as concerns over surging inflation pressures and the weakest China growth rate in more than a year tamed optimism linked to a strong start to the third quarter earnings season. Chinese Q3 GDP missed, rising +0.2% q/q vs 0.5% consensus, and was +4.9% y/y vs 5.2% consensus amid a rolling power crisis, supply chain disruptions and a crackdown on the tech sector.

In Europe, the German DAX is lower by -0.6% or nearly 100-points to drop below 15,500, while the FTSE 100 dips -0.3% to hold above the 7,200 level. U.S. stocks look to build on last week’s gains where large-cap tech names propelled the advance Friday, with shares of Amazon.com (AMZN) and Tesla (TSLA) each rising more than 3% on no specific news, while the SmallCap Russell 2000 underperformed, falling -0.35% as investors bailed on value stocks for growth stocks. Strong quarterly earnings from Dow component Goldman Sachs (GS) also boosted financials as investors prepare for a flood of reports next week. Shares of cryptocurrency and blockchain-related firms gained last week as bitcoin topped $60,000 for the first time since April, with expectations growing that U.S. regulators would allow a futures-based ETF.

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.

Thursday, September 23, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 162.00 0.47% 34,291 S&P 500 23.25 0.53% 4,407 Nasdaq 83.50 0.55% 15,247 U.S. stocks are looking at another move higher following strong gains on Wednesday despite the FOMC taking a more “hawkish” stance on both rates and the timeline on asset purchase tapering during yesterday’s meeting. Stocks jumped on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve cleared the way to ease monthly bond purchases “soon” and signaled interest rate increases may follow more quickly than expected. Stocks pared gains late as Fed Chair Jerome Powell spoke at his press conference but still closed up solidly. Fed officials indicated that they see interest rates seen rising to 1% in 2023, faster than projected by the Fed in its projections in June, and then to 1.8% in 2024. Nine of eleven major S&P 500 sectors ended the day higher. However, of note, all 11 groups retreated from the moments before Powell’s press conference began, into the close. The Dow Transport index slid to 6-month lows following weakness from Fed-Ex (FDX) earnings results and guidance the night prior. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index was closed, the Shanghai Index rose 13 points to 3,642 and the Hang Seng Index gained 289 points to 24,510. In Europe, the German DAX is up over 130 points (0.89%) to 15,645, while the FTSE 100 rises about 20-points to move above 7,100. Oil prices are slipping but still holds near two-month high with global stockpiles tightening. In China news, the WSJ reported China is preparing for the “demise” of Evergrande, signaling Beijing’s reluctance to get involved and bail out the company.

Tuesday, September 14, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 39.00 0.11% 34,793 S&P 500 4.25 0.11% 4,464 Nasdaq 4.50 0.03% 15,434 U.S futures are looking flattish to slightly higher ahead of key inflation data later this morning, as the August Consumer Price Index (CPI) is expected to show a MoM increase of +0.4% and YoY rise 5.3% (which would mark a 4th straight month above 5%). The data could set the tone for the rest of the day as the 10-year Treasury yield is up 1.5 bps to 1.339% ahead of the data, while the dollar index is down slightly around 92.60. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 222 points to 30,670, the Shanghai Index dropped -52 points (1.42%) to settle at 3,662 and the Hang Seng Index declined -311 points (1.21%) to 25,502. In Europe, the German DAX is up about 15 points to 15,720, while the FTSE 100 is down about -20 points to 7,050. On Monday, the S&P snapped its longest losing streak since February (5-days) while the blue-chip Dow Jones Industrial produced its best daily gain since early August as investors bought energy and financial assets to start the week. The Dow closed up by about 262 points, or 0.8%, to 34,870, halting a five-session skid and notching its best point and percentage advance since Aug. 5. The S&P 500 index climbed 10 points, or 0.2%, to around 4,469, also ending a five-session slide. The Nasdaq Composite Index slipped 0.1% at around 15,106, extending its string of declines to four straight sessions, representing the longest such skid since a five-session slump ended July 19. Of note later today, investors await AAPL’s first fall event at 1PM ET / 10AM PT, with expectations for a new iPhone, and updates on other products.

Friday, September 10, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 167.00 0.48% 34,920 S&P 500 17.25 0.38% 4,500 Nasdaq 58.50 0.37% 15,608 U.S. futures are looking sharply higher, with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average looking to snap their respective 4-day losing streaks, the longest for the S&P since the middle of June. There hasn’t been much news for the recent sputtering of stocks on this holiday shortened week, though it is noteworthy that major averages remain roughly 1% off all-time highs in what has been a momentous run the last few months on dovish Fed policy and strong corporate earnings. Wall Street got a sentiment boost overnight after U.S. President Joe Biden and China President Xi Jinping held a surprise 90-minute phone call late Thursday, the first between the two world leaders in seven months. Asia shares got a boost from news of the talks, with the positive sentiment flowing through into a European session that was still navigating yesterday’s tapering decision from the ECB and news showing that the ongoing spread of Delta variant coronavirus infections lead to the slowest monthly economic growth in the UK since the January lockdowns. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index jumped 373 points (1.25%) to 30,331, the Shanghai Index rose 10 points to 3,703 and the Hang Seng Index surged 489 points (1.91%) to 26,205. The German DAX gains 50 points to 15,675, while the FTSE 100 rises 25 points to 7,050.
