  • Stocks - Wall Street Optimism Returns After Trump Tones Down Trade Rhetoric

    May 24, 2019, 01:49

    Investing.com - Wall Street was higher Friday as investors were cautiously optimistic after U.S. President Donald Trump toned down his stance against Chinese tech giant Huawei.

    The S&P 500 rose 14 points, or 0.5%, by 9:48 AM ET (13:48 GMT), while the Dow gained 149 points, or 0.6%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq composite was up 56 points, or 0.7%.

    Trump told reporters that if a trade deal was made with China, Huawei - which he still referred to as "very dangerous" - could be included in some form. The news eased fears among investors of a tech cold war between Washington and Beijing.

    Trump will meet his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping at the G20 meeting next month in Japan.

    "We've had a turbulent week. Investors are stepping back at these levels, assessing opportunities entering the long weekend," said Andre Bakhos, managing director at New Vines Capital.

    Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) rose 1.3% after Piper Jaffray said the e-commerce giant could be worth $3,000 a share in two years, while Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) gained 1.4% and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) inched up 0.3%.

    Total System Services (NYSE:TSS) surged 11.4% after reports that it is in merger talks with Global Payments (NYSE:GPN).

    Elsewhere, Foot Locker (NYSE:FL) fell 17% after its comparable sales failed to grow as much as analysts expected in the first quarter.

    In commodities, gold futures fell 0.4% to $1,280.80 a troy ounce, while crude oil jumped 0.8% to $58.41. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, slipped 0.1% to 97.620.

  • Top 5 Things to Know in The Market on Friday

    May 24, 2019, 10:08

    Investing.com -- These are the top 5 things you need to know in financial markets on Friday, May 24.

    1. Trade war becomes currency war

    The U.S. issued a veiled warning to China not to devalue its currency as a way of offsetting the damage to its exporters from U.S. tariffs.

    The Commerce Department published late Thursday a notice of “proposed rule-making” that would let the administration punish countries that “act to undervalue their currency relative to the dollar, resulting in a subsidy to their exports.”

    The CNY/USD has stabilized in the last couple of sessions after sliding to a succession of new lows for 2019 as the trade war has ramped up. It closed at 6.9009 to the dollar on Thursday in mainland trading, while the offshore yuan traded at 6.9184.

    2. Markets price in Fed rate cut

    All benchmark Treasury bonds out to 10 years in maturity are now trading below the Fed Funds target rate of 2.25%-2.50%. The is yielding 2.33%, having dipped below 2.3% for the first time since October 2017 on Thursday.

    By contrast, the three-month T-bill, which is closely tied to the Fed’s official interest rates, is at 2.38%

    3. Wall Street Set to Rebound at Open

    Stocks are set to rebound from Thursday’s losses at the opening Friday, after President Donald Trump dialled back his rhetoric against Huawei somewhat.

    At 5:45 AM ET, the S&P 500 futures contract was up 15 points, the Dow futures contract was up 133 points, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 contract was up 38 points. For all three, that’s a gain of 0.5%, which is a little less than half of what they lost in Thursday’s rout.

    Both the International Monetary Fund and the New York Federal Reserve warned Thursday that the spiralling trade war represented a threat to growth and living standards, with the Fed survey indicating that the latest round of tariff hikes would leave the average household $831 a year worse off.

    4. Oil's dead-cat bounce

    Crude oil prices have also stabilized after their worst day of the year to date.

    U.S. crude futures were up 1.2% at $58.69 a barrel, while the international Brent blend was up by the same amount at $68.56.

    That’s only a modest recovery from a 6% decline yesterday, which drove prices to their lowest level since mid-March.

    The sell-off comes only weeks before OPEC, Russia and others are scheduled to take a decision on whether or not to extend the current agreement on output restraint when its expires at the end of June.

    5. May makes way; harder Brexit now likely

    British Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed she will stand down on June 7 after three years of trying and failing to deliver Brexit.

    The British pound rose over half a cent on the news, but is still below $1.2700, capped by the awareness that the next Conservative Party leader is likely to be from the more aggressive Brexiteer wing of the party. The pound has generally weakened whenever the likelihood of a ‘hard Brexit’ has risen.

  • Dollar Down as Weak Data Fuel Rate Cut Hopes

    May 24, 2019, 07:07

    Investing.com -- The U.S. dollar was trading broadly lower early Friday in Europe, amid rising expectations that the Federal Reserve will have to cut interest rates to support the U.S. economy to offset the damage from a widening trade war with China.

    U.S. manufacturing activity slowed to its weakest in five years in May while new home sales fell 6.9% in April, an ominously weak start the spring selling season. The data came on the back of similarly weak business surveys in Japan and Europe, and a warning from the International Monetary Fund about the dangers of the escalating trade war between the world’s two largest economies.

    "Markets are pricing in a rate cut as damage from the trade tension is thought to be larger than imagined, though the Fed hasn\'t talked about it at all," said Yukio Ishizuki, senior currency strategist at Daiwa Securities, told Reuters.

    The yuan was stable overnight, soothing fears – for now - that China will allow it to fall in order to absorb some of the shock to its economy from higher and broader U.S. import tariffs.

    The tone was marginally improved by comments from President Trump on telecoms giant Huawei, saying that it was “possible that Huawei could be included as part of a trade deal,” despite its being “very dangerous, from a security standpoint.”

    At 03:00 AM ET (0700 GMT), the euro and British pound were both rebounding against the dollar, leaving the single currency on course to end the week with a gain of nearly 0.5% against it. Sterling, however, is still set for a weekly loss, owing to rise in political volatility in the U.K.

    Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to announce a date for her resignation later Friday after a meeting with her party’s lawmakers. The indications are that she will remain in office long enough to receive President Donald Trump, who is scheduled to visit the U.K. between June 3-5.

    The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, was 97.627, having traded above 98 for most of Thursday.

  • Gold Prices Slip as Traders Await More Trade News

    May 24, 2019, 05:22

    Investing.com - Gold prices slipped on Friday in Asia as traders awaited more trade news.

    Gold futures for June delivery, traded on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, were down 0.2% at $1,283.25 per ounce by 1:20 AM ET (05:20 GMT).

    While an intensifying trade dispute between the U.S. and China have sent most risk assets down this month, the safe-haven gold has not been able to benefit as much as traders hoped as markets have seemingly preferred the U.S. dollar amid the trade war. Gold is now down nearly 5% since touching a 10-month peak in February at $1,346.73.

    The U.S. dollar index, which usually moves in directions opposite to gold, was near a one-month high on Thursday but retreated as weak domestic data increased expectations for an interest-rate cut this year.

    Sales of new U.S. homes fell from near an 11.5 year high in April as prices rebounded and manufacturing activity hit its lowest level in almost a decade in May, data showed.

    Gold prices recorded the largest percentage gain in a week on Thursday, but analysts said it might have trouble hitting the psychologically important $1,300 level.

    "Gold has found a very good support around $1,270. There was some short covering after the (weak U.S.) data that pushed prices up. However, the upside could be limited as $1,290 is acting as a strong resistance," said Peter Fung, head of dealing at Wing Fung Precious Metals, in a Reuters report.

  • Asian Stocks Set for Third Week of Losses Amid Trade War Worries

    May 24, 2019, 02:48

    Investing.com - Asian stocks were mixed in morning trade on Friday and are set for a third week of losses as traders digest the latest headlines on the Sino-U.S. trade war.

    China’s Shanghai Composite edged up 0.2% by 10:30 PM ET (02:30 GMT), while the Shenzhen Component slipped 0.4%.

    Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index gained 0.2%.

    Japan’s Nikkei 225 was down 0.7%. Core consumer prices, an inflation gauge closely watched, rose 0.9% in April from a year earlier, in line with expectations and accelerating slightly from March’s 0.8% gain, government data showed on Friday.

    South Korea’s KOSPI declined by 0.9%. Down under, Australia’s ASX 200 fell 0.7%.

    The Sino-U.S. trade war remained in the headlines as U.S. President Donald Trump said Chinese telecom giant Huawei could be part of a trade pact with the country.

    “It’s possible that Huawei even would be included in some kind of a trade deal,” Trump told reporters at the White House, without providing details. “Huawei is something that’s very dangerous. You look at what they’ve done from a security standpoint, from a military standpoint, it’s very dangerous.”

    Huawei was put on a U.S. blacklist earlier this month. Citing people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg said the U.S. had held off the ban but decided to take action after the negotiations with China hit an impasse.

    Meanwhile, Chinese officials blamed the U.S. for wrecking trade talks and that they must alter their “wrong practices” before negotiations could resume.

    No further trade talks are scheduled at this point, but Trump has said he will meet his Chinese part Xi Jinping at next month’s G-20 summit in Japan.

  • Oil Settles Down 6% in Worst Trading Day of 2019

    May 23, 2019, 07:04

    By Barani Krishnan

    Investing.com - Oil prices plunged nearly 6% Thursday in this year's worst drop and the worst fall since the start of OPEC production cuts in December. The escalating U.S.-China trade war and huge crude pileups from weak refiner demand combined to roil the market.

    West Texas Intermediate futures, the benchmark for U.S. crude, fell below key $60 per barrel support, settling down $3.51 , or 5.7%, at $57.91 per barrel.

    London Brent futures, the global benchmark for oil, lost its $70-per-barrel perch, falling $3.54, or 5%, to $67.45 by 2:48 PM ET (18:48 GMT).

    "Ugly macro, ugly price action," said Scott Shelton, energy futures broker at ICAP (LON:NXGN) in Durham, N.C.

    "Market is bidless as WTI is through the 200-day moving average, and Brent is through the 50-Day," Shelton said.

    Wall Street's three key stock indexes fell by more than 1% each as investors fled from risk on fears that the trade war will have profound and long-term consequences for growth.

    Oil markets have been teetering since the start of the week after U.S. President Donald Trump moved to block popular Chinese cellphone maker and technology giant Huawei from the U.S. market as an extension of the tariffs he had been piling on China.

    The selloff accelerated on Wednesday after data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed a surprise crude oil build of about 5 million barrels, on the average, for a second running week. The inventory spike came on the back of muted U.S. refinery runs, despite Monday's Memorial Day holiday, which marks the unofficial start to peak summer driving activity in the U.S., being just days away.

    As the one community that could typically be counted on to deliver the demand and strong prices typical for oil in the run-up to summer, American refineries have been uncharacteristically weak in their support of crude prices this year. Doing longer-than-expected plant maintenance and processing less crude than anticipated week after week, refinery owners have become a new source of frustration to oil bulls already reeling from stubbornly highly U.S. crude production.

    Aside from the surge in crude inventories, the EIA said total motor gasoline stockpiles also increased by 3.7 million barrels during the week ended May 17, against forecasts for a drop of nearly 816,000.

    Distillate fuel inventories rose by 800,000 barrels last week versus expectations for a drop of 48,000 barrels.

    Analysts said the main reason for this year's weak U.S. refinery runs was the softer crack, or profit margins, for gasoline and other fuels this year compared to a year ago. As of Wednesday, the gasoline crack stood at around $21 per barrel versus around $28 seen just before summer 2018.
    If the pace of refining in the U.S. wasn't bad enough, Asia’s oil refiners were also considering reducing output after margins slumped to their lowest level of the season since 2003, Reuters reported.

    Despite Thursday's bloodbath in oil, crude prices are still up substantially for the year, with WTI still showing a year-to-date gain of 27%. Brent is up 25% for the year.

  • Oil Plunges 5% on Stockpile Surge, Slow Refining and Trade War

    May 23, 2019, 03:17

    By Barani Krishnan

    Investing.com - Oil prices plunged 5% Thursday in this year's worst drop and the worst fall since the start of OPEC production cuts in December. The escalating U.S.-China trade war and huge crude pileups from weak refiner demand combined to roil the market.

    West Texas Intermediate futures, the benchmark for U.S. crude, fell below key $60 per barrel support, trading down $3.14 , or 5.1%, at $58.28 per barrel by 11:15 AM ET (15:15 GMT).

    London Brent futures, the global benchmark for oil, lost its $70-per-barrel perch, falling $3.13, or 4.4%, to $67.86

    "Ugly macro, ugly price action," said Scott Shelton, energy futures broker at ICAP (LON:NXGN) in Durham, N.C.

    "Market is bidless as WTI is through the 200-day moving average, and Brent is through the 50-Day and approaching the 200-day moving average," Shelton said.

    Wall Street's three key stock indexes fell by more than 1% each as investors fled from risk on fears that the trade war will have profound and long-term consequences for growth.

    Oil markets have been teetering since the start of the week after U.S. President Donald Trump moved to block popular Chinese cellphone maker and technology giant Huawei from the U.S. market as an extension of the tariffs he had been piling on China.

    The selloff accelerated on Wednesday after data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed a surprise crude oil build of about 5 million barrels, on the average, for a second running week. The inventory spike came on the back of muted U.S. refinery runs, despite Monday's Memorial Day holiday, which marks the unofficial start to peak summer driving activity in the U.S., being just days away.

    As the one community that could typically be counted on to deliver the demand and strong prices typical for oil in the run-up to summer, American refineries have been uncharacteristically weak in their support of crude prices this year. Doing longer-than-expected plant maintenance and processing less crude than anticipated week after week, refinery owners have become a new source of frustration to oil bulls already reeling from stubbornly highly U.S. crude production.

    Aside from the surge in crude inventories, the EIA said total motor gasoline stockpiles also increased by 3.7 million barrels during the week ended May 17, against forecasts for a drop of nearly 816,000.

    Distillate fuel inventories rose by 800,000 barrels last week versus expectations for a drop of 48,000 barrels.

    Analysts said the main reason for this year's weak U.S. refinery runs was the softer crack, or profit margins, for gasoline and other fuels this year compared to a year ago. As of Wednesday, the gasoline crack stood at around $21 per barrel versus around $28 seen just before summer 2018.

    If the pace of refining in the U.S. wasn't bad enough, Asia’s oil refiners were also considering reducing output after margins slumped to their lowest level of the season since 2003, Reuters reported.

    Despite Thursday's bloodbath in oil, crude prices are still up substantially for the year, with WTI still showing a year-to-date gain of 28%. Brent is up 26% for the year.

  • Tesla Rises Midday After Leaked Musk Email

    May 23, 2019, 03:08

    Investing.com - Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) rose in midday trading Thursday after a leaked email from CEO Elon Musk showed the electric car company is on pace to top its record of deliveries in the second quarter.

    Musk’s email, which Reuters reported was authentic, said the company, on average, produced 900 Model 3 cars per day this week, bringing it close to its target of 7,000 a week.

    The email also stated that the company has 50,000 net new orders for this quarter as of Tuesday.

    The news helped shares of Tesla rise from six-consecutive sessions in the red, as investors worry over the company’s financials and ability to keep up with demand.

    Tesla rose 1.7% in midday trade, but was still near a two-and-a-half year low.

  • Stocks - Wall Street Slumps as Trade War Fears Escalate

    May 23, 2019, 01:43

    Investing.com – Wall Street slumped on Thursday as fears that the U.S.-China trade war will have profound and long-term consequences for growth spooked investors.

    The S&P 500 fell 35 points or 1.2% by 9:44 AM ET (13:44 GMT), while the Dow lost 346 points or 1.3% and tech-heavy Nasdaq composite was down 114 points or 1.5%. The Nasdaq has under-performed all week on fears that the tech sector will be hurt more than most as the U.S. tries to stop China attaining world leadership in technologies such as 5G.

    China told Washington overnight to correct its "wrong actions" in order for trade talks to continue. The comments were in response to the U.S. blacklisting Chinese tech giant Huawei last week, a development that has led companies to drop its smartphones from their 5G offerings. That's on top of various governments signalling it will restrict Huawei's involvement in the rollout of 5G spectrum networks. The White House is looking at the possibility of blocking more Chinese companies from the American market, something that could trigger more equity sell-offs.

    "It has moved into a broader trade war. Initially, it was about tariffs and retaliation, now you're talking about banning companies and it's not looking good in the near-term," said Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James in St. Petersburg, Florida.

    "If you look at the U.S. economy a lot of the growth in earnings comes from what's happening overseas. Now we see that's not been helpful and as the domestic economy slows more than expected, that also could have a negative impact."

    Technology stocks were again among the hardest hit, with Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) down 2.9%, Micron (NASDAQ:MU) falling 3.7% and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) slipping 1.6%.

    Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) declined 1.4% after analysts warned that the electric car company is likely to miss its 2019 delivery target, partly because of the risk it will be hit by Chinese countermeasures on trade.

    Boeing (NYSE:BA) fell 2.5% ahead of a Federal Aviation Authority meeting with international regulators to discuss the continued grounding of the airplane makers 737 Max. The agency has warned that the model could be grounded beyond October.

    In commodities, gold futures rose 0.5% to $1,280.35 a troy ounce, while crude oil slumped 4% to $58.91, its lowest level in two months. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, was up 0.4% to 98.222.

  • Oil Prices Hit 2-Month Low as Stockpiles Play to Trade War Fears

    May 23, 2019, 01:07

    Investing.com -- Crude oil prices fell sharply to their lowest since March on Thursday, as another surprisingly strong increase in U.S. stockpiles last week eased market fears about short-term supply risks, and let worries about the U.S. China trade war and its impact on longer-term demand to reassert themselves.

    At 9:45 AM ET (1345 GMT), U.S. WTI crude futures were down over $2 a barrel, or 4.2%, at $58.84, breaching the $60 level for the first time since March 28. The international benchmark Brent blend traded down 3.5% at $68.52 a barrel.

    The slide had already started late on Wednesday after the U.S. government revealed that crude inventories had risen by 4.74 million barrels, rather than the 600,000 barrel decline that had been expected. Stocks of gasoline and other distillates also rose, counter to expectations.

    The rout continued as more harsh rhetoric from China on trade, coupled with weaker-than-expected business surveys in Germany revived fears for the health of the global economy. The International Monetary Fund then rammed home the point with a blog arguing that "the latest escalation (of the U.S.-China trade war) could significantly dent business and financial market sentiment, disrupt global supply chains, and jeopardize the projected recovery in global growth in 2019."

    The Fund added that "Consumers in the US and China are unequivocally the losers," facing higher prices across the board for imported goods.

    Earlier, Reuters had reported that Asian refiners may cut production in response to refining margins falling to their lowest level in 16 years. That comes on the back of anecdotal reports of increased Chinese gasoline exports in recent weeks, something that speaks to a shortfall in demand at home.

    Gasoline futures meanwhile fell 3.0% to $1.9303, their lowest since early April.

    Natgas futures, by contrast, edged up 0.6% to $2.56 per million British thermal units.
