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.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year falls another 2 bps, hitting lows around 1.33% today (lowest since February). The S&P 500 looks to get back on track after having its 7-day win streak snapped yesterday, also stopping a string of record closing highs as investors await minutes from the latest Federal Reserve meeting later today for clues on the central bank’s next policy moves.

/*============================================= = Thursday, June 17, 2021 = =============================================*/ Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -110.00 0.32% 33,795 S&P 500 -16.25 0.39% 4,196 Nasdaq -87.50 0.63% 13,885 U.S. stock futures are lower, with major averages looking to open down between -0.3% and -0.6% after the Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged on Wednesday but signaled it expected to boost interest rates two times by the end of 2023, earlier than Wall Street had anticipated. Treasury yields ended higher yesterday, as the 10-year holding around the 1.57% level (up roughly 8 bps prior to the Fed announcement). The number of Fed governors who expect rate hikes as early as 2022 – known as the dot plot – went to seven from four, essentially translating into two rate hikes in 2023 based on growth and inflation projections from the 18 members of the FOMC as the economy recovers rapidly from the effects of the pandemic and inflation heats up. Banking shares rally, however, as bond yields rise, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 1.55%. Chairman Jerome Powell also said officials discussed an eventual reduction of bond-buying, though the timing of such a move remains uncertain. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index dropped -272 points to 29,018, the Shanghai Index rose 7 points to 3,525, and the Hang Seng Index gained 121 points to settle at 28,558. In Europe, the German DAX is down around -20 points to 5,695, while the FTSE 100is down -30 points at 7,150.
