Wednesday, August 11, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 32.00 0.09% 35,187 S&P 500 -2.25 0.06% 4,427 Nasdaq -32.00 0.21% 15,012 U.S. stocks are looking mixed ahead of key economic data today, coming a day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the benchmark S&P 500 each rose to record highs, buoyed by gains in economically sensitive value stocks such as materials, industrials, and building products after the Senate passed a $1 trillion infrastructure plan today with 19 Republicans joining all 50 Democrats voting to approve the bill that includes $550B in new funding, and it will now move to the House. Early this morning the Senate Democrats passed the $3.5 trillion budget framework, opening a path for President Joe Biden’s economic agenda. However, tech weakness dragged down the Nasdaq Composite led by large cap names on Tuesday, with more weakness early. Crude posted its biggest intraday gain in more than two weeks, while the U.S. dollar climbed to a three-week high and Treasury yields hit their highest levels since mid-July (1.34%). Meanwhile, Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester said supply disruptions are raising prices, but it’s unclear whether they will lead to continuous gains in inflation. Those headlines come ahead of today’s consumer price index (CPI) which is expected to show a 4.3% year-over-year core print, 5.3% year-over-year “core” overall. Treasury yields continue to edge higher ahead of today’s CPI reading, with the 10-year up about 3 bps to 1.37%, meanwhile the U.S. dollar overs around 3-week highs. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index jumped 182 points (0.65%) to settle at 28,070, the Shanghai Index was up slightly at 3,532 and the Hang Seng Index gained 54 points to 26,660. In Europe, the German DAX is up slightly at 15,785, while the FTSE 100 rises around 35 points to 7,200.

Good morning, US stock futures mostly lower but coming off overnight lows. Gold and silver marginally higher while crude is a bit lower ahead of inventory data later this morning. CPI data comes out at 8:30 and could be a market mover with expectations for pretty high numbers once again in this "transitory" period of inflation. Nothing to worry about, once the $3.5T human infrastructure bill is passed, inflation will certainly come down. hahaha. Some nice earnings moves to the upside on $UPST, $FUBO, $MOGO, $PUBM. Big losers on earnings include $WW, $HYRE, $ONTF, $APPH, $PRGO, $POSH

Tuesday, August 10, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -19.00 0.05% 34,979 S&P 500 -0.25 0.02% 4,425 Nasdaq 17.50 0.12% 15,142 Stock markets are looking quiet again, as major averages have been holding near record highs but struggling for direction to start the week. Stronger economic data last Friday on the form of non-farm payrolls and declining unemployment helped boost sentiment about the economy, overshadowing any uncertainty over what impact the fast-spreading delta virus variant will have on the economy and comments from Federal Reserve officials about scaling back support. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index gained 68 points to settle at 27,888, the Shanghai Index jumped 35 points to 3,529, and the Hang Seng Index gained 322 points (1.23%) to close at 26,605. In Europe, the German DAX is up around 25 points to 15,770, while the FTSE 100 is down a few points at 7,125. Today a fairly busy day of economic data, but all eyes fixed on the inflation reports coming up tomorrow (CPI) and on Thursday (PP), to see if the four-month spike in prices is indeed transitory as the Fed has pledged or if it is something more troubling for consumers down the line. Earnings season has begun to slow, with nearly 450 S&P companies having reported this quarter, with only some big retailers (WMT, TGT, HD, LOW) remaining. Trading ranges have remained in tight ranges of late, as summer doldrums have kicked in early.

Monday, August 9, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -110.00 0.32% 34,979 S&P 500 -8.25 0.19% 4,421 Nasdaq 10.50 0.07% 15,106 Stock futures traded mostly lower Monday as investors increased bets the Federal Reserve would pull back on stimulus following a stronger-than-expected U.S. jobs report last week. Stocks closed higher on Friday, adding to its string of weekly advances as the S&P 500 index hits its 44th record high after a strong monthly jobs report fuels a further rotation into riskier assets. The U.S. economy added 943,000 jobs in July as hiring surged and employers raised wages to lure workers. It marked the second straight month of impressive growth. For the week, unofficially, the S&P rose 0.94%, the Dow added 0.78%, and the Nasdaq gained 1.11%. U.S. Treasury yields rose Friday after the jobs report, rising 8.7 bps at 1.3036%, its highest of the day, as equity indexes closed at record highs (back down at 1.28%). The financial sector saw its biggest daily percentage gain since July 20, while materials scored their best day in nearly a month as consumer discretionary stocks lagged. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index gained 91 points to 27,820, the Shanghai Index rises 36 points (over 1%) to 3,494, the Hang Seng Index jumps 104 points to 26,283. In Europe, the German DAX is down -30 points to 15,730, while the FTSE 100 is down about -25 points, dipping just below 7,100. Bitcoin prices are higher by over 5% to $45,000 while Ethereum prices extend last week gains, also up over 5% topping $3,000. Oil prices looking lower again as WTI Crude slips 3.75% or over $2.50 to $65.70 (lowest levels since June) as worries about the COVID Delta variant’s impact on global growth increase. Goldman Sachs cut its forecast for China Q3 and full-year GDP, but does expect the government to bring the outbreak under control in about a month. Also, China’s crude imports slipped to the lowest since May last month after operations were halted at key ports on the east coast due to a typhoon. The nation imported 41.24 metric tons of crude in July, according to data.
