Tuesday, October 19, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 125.00 0.34% 35,254 S&P 500 2o.25 0.45% 4,497 Nasdaq 52.50 0.34% 15,343 U.S. stock markets are looking to open higher, extending the winning streak for the S&P 500 to 5-days ahead of a busy morning of quarterly earnings, including vaccine maker and Dow component Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Procter & Gamble (PG). A modest pullback in 10-year Treasury note yields, which traded at 1.584% overnight, and a weaker U.S. dollar are also providing early support Tuesday. Oil prices look to extend gains, with WTI crude and Brent pushing higher. In Asian markets overnight, The Nikkei Index jumped 190 points to 29,215, the Shanghai Index rose 25 points to 3,593, and the Hang Seng Index climbed 377 points (1.49%) to 25, 787. In Europe, the German DAX is up a few points to trade just under 15,500, while the FTSE 100 also edges higher above the 7,200 level. U.S. stocks finished higher on Monday as investors prepare for strong earnings this week with 72 of the S&P 500 expected to report this week while overlooking worries over inflation, supply-chain issues and energy supply as oil prices closed higher again. Data Sunday night showed growth in China slowed to 4.9% for 3Q, hurt by a crackdown on tech, and real estate as well as power-shortage and supply-chain problems. Heavy weight tech stocks helped paced gains again on Monday ahead of key earnings from Netflix tonight and Tesla, Intel later this week. Small cap stocks, banks and energy were among underperformers as the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished Monday lower.

Thursday, July 22, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 83.00 0.24% 34,772 S&P 500 8.25 0.20% 4,359 Nasdaq 20.50 0.14% 14,848 Stock futures pointing higher, looking to make it a third straight day in a row of gains as optimism about earnings and the economic recovery outweighed Wall Street’s concerns about rising inflation and surging coronavirus cases. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury rose early Thursday to 1.287% after touching lows below 1.13% earlier this week. President Joe Biden, at a town hall in Cincinnati hosted by CNN, said Wednesday night “there will be near-term inflation” as the economy recovers but said he has been advised by his economic team that current price increases won’t last as demand returns to normal levels. Stocks advanced Wednesday as strong corporate earnings and renewed optimism about the U.S. economic recovery stoked investor risk appetite. All three major U.S. stock indexes appeared set to build on the previous session’s gains, which delivered the S&P 500’s best day since March, while the Russell 2000 SmallCap outperformed for a second day after trading in correction territory on Monday (defined as 10% down off record highs). With Wednesday’s advance, all three are within 1% of their all-time closing highs. Economically sensitive SmallCaps, semiconductors and financials outperformed the broader market as investors prep for another busy day of earnings. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 159 points to 27,548, the Shanghai Index gained 12 points to 3,574 and the Hang Seng Index jumped nearly 500 points (1.83%) to settle at 27,723.

A failure to work out differences over whether government spending cuts should accompany an increase in the statutory debt limit, currently set at $28.5 trillion, could lead to a federal government shutdown – as has happened three times in the past decade – or even a debt default.

Tuesday, July 20, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 178.00 0.53% 34,017 S&P 500 20.25 0.49% 4,272 Nasdaq 73.50 0.50% 14,614 U.S. stock futures are looking to rebound after major averages posted their worst single day returns in months with attention turning to earnings reports. Major U.S. stock benchmarks dropped sharply on Monday as the Dow Jones Industrial Average marked its worst drop since late October falling -725 points (off earlier lows down over 900 points), amid growing concerns about the global spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The benchmark S&P 500 index ended down 1.6% at 4,258, getting a boost late day to push back above its 50-day moving average of 4,240 (off lows below 4,235), while the Nasdaq Composite Index declined 1.1% at 14,275. The declines for stocks came as the 10-year Treasury note yield fell to a five-month low beneath 1.18%. The CBOE Volatility Index ($VIX), the SPX option derived measure of implied volatility, lifted $4.05 or 21.95% today to close at $22.50 (off earlier highs above 25). U.S. crude oil slides below $70 in biggest one-day drop since September as OPEC and its allies agreed to increase production at the same time the COVID-19 delta variant threatens global demand. All 30 of the components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished lower Monday. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index declined -264 points to 27,338, the Shanghai Index slipped a few points to 3,536 and the Hang Seng Index dropped -230 points to 27,259.
