    Wall Street looks to Fed outlook Wednesday for early Christmas gift

    Investors are eager for a touch of Christmas cheer from the U.S. Federal Reserve next week, hoping for signs the central bank may ease up on interest rate hikes next year and spark a Santa Claus rally. U.S. stocks are having their worst December performance in 16 years with the S&P 500 (.SPX) notching a 5 percent drop so far this month. The Fed's ongoing reversal of easy-money policy is a major overhang, and it is expected to raise rates more at the end of its two-day meeting on Wednesday.

    Federated Investors' top fund manager thinks the market is wrongly pricing in a 2019 recession

    Wall Street angst over a possible recession may be increasing, but one bull refuses to waver. Federated Investors' Steve Chiavarone believes there's nothing on the horizon that suggests the 2018 market corrections will become a massive downturn next year. Rather, he sees stocks hitting fresh record highs — citing labor market trends, inflation levels, the Treasury yield curve and credit spreads as key factors contributing to a favorable economic and market environment.

    How a choppy stock market shows ‘neither bulls nor bears’ are in charge right now

    The stock market’s inability to hold big opening gains — or big opening losses — is leaving some traders a bit frustrated. The S&P 500 (SPX) opened sharply higher Wednesday as stock markets charged out of the gate, ostensibly on optimism tied to more feel-good headlines surrounding U.S.-China trade talks. The S&P 500 had rallied toward technical resistance at 2,686, he noted, in a Wednesday blog post, and then “it was the gap- filling Algo’s that went to work bringing the S&P 500 lower.

    Mounting investor concerns about the outlook for economic growth and borrowing costs have pushed US financial stocks into a bear market. The S&P 500 financial sector index finished 1 per cent lower on Friday to leave it down 20.1 per cent from its late January peak — crossing the 20 per cent threshold that typically defines the start of a bear market.

    Weak Data from China, Euro Zone Proves to Be Too Much for U.S. Investors to Handle

    The selling began in Asia early Friday after China reported industrial production and retail sales growth numbers for November which failed to meet expectations. The data served as the latest signs of a weakening economy in China. Furthermore, it exposed the risks that China is facing as it continues to battle the United States in their ongoing trade war. Economic conditions also worsened in the Euro Zone. The IHS Markit Flash Euro Zone PMI Index fell to 51.7 in December, its lowest level in four years.
