    Fed's $4 Trillion Balance Sheet in Focus Ahead of Minutes From January Meeting

    The U.S. dollar held onto gains against its global peers Wednesday ahead of Minutes from the Federal Reserve that are expected to confirm the bank's recent signals on slower rate hikes and a more patient approach to monetary policy in the face of uncertain economic growth at home and notable weakening around the world. Minutes from the Fed's January meeting, which ended with no changes to its key lending rate and a removal of a reference to the direction of future decisions, marked the formal confirmation of the Bank's policy u-turn from its hawkish stance on rate hikes in early December that sent U.S stocks to the lowest levels in 18 months. What may prove more important for market participants today, however, is what the Minutes reveal about discussions surrounding the Fed's $4 trillion balance sheet and the pace at which it allows bonds in the portfolio to mature without being replaced with new Treasuries.

    Global Markets: U.S.-China trade hopes extend equity surge; central banks supportive

    World stocks hit a four-month high on Wednesday on hopes of progress in trade talks between the United States and China, with a dovish backdrop at major central banks also helping push markets back into the black. U.S. President Donald Trump said negotiations with China were going well and suggested he was open to extending the deadline to complete them beyond March 1. Up to now, it was assumed U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports would rise to 25 percent from 10 percent if no trade deal was reached by then.

    Stocks Mixed as Trump Hints at China Talks Extension; Fed Minutes Loom For Doves

    Global stocks edge higher on increasing trade deal optimism after President Donald Trump says March 1 deadline not a "magical" date in U.S.-China talks. Gains capped ahead of Fed minutes as investors seek confirmation of central bank's neutral stance on rates amid slowing economic data at home and abroad. Global stocks traded cautiously higher again Wednesday, with markets in Asia touching fresh four-month highs, amid increasing signs of tangible progress in U.S.-China trade talks and a suggestion from President Donald Trump that negotiations could be extended if the two sides fail to reach an agreement by the first of next month.

    China state-run media: Any new US tariffs on Chinese goods will be 'catastrophic' for global stocks

    U.S. President Donald Trump has frequently cited the American stock market's performance as a gauge of his success. The S&P 500 is up almost 10.9 percent so far this year, while the Shanghai composite has gained more than 10 percent. A Chinese state-run newspaper claimed in an editorial published late Tuesday that the U.S. faces greater pressure to resolve its ongoing trade war with China because failed negotiations would likely have major consequences for stocks worldwide.

    [$$] Investors Sound Warning About Markets’ Complacency on Interest Rates

    Stocks and bonds are rising on bets that the Federal Reserve has ended its nearly four-year campaign of interest-rate increases, worrying investors who believe the central bank could upend those expectations later this year. Since the Fed’s January meeting, a number of investors and traders have concluded that the central bank hasn’t just paused its rate increases, but finished them altogether. Some believe the Fed’s next move could be to cut the benchmark short-term rate, something it hasn’t done since December 2008, when the global financial crisis forced the central bank to slash rates to near zero.

    US Stocks Recover from Lackluster Session Amid Trump’s Flexibility on Trade Deadline

    Talks between the two economic powerhouses are continuing this week. Ahead of the start of new talks in Washington, Trump said that trade talks with China are going well, adding the current March deadline is not a “magical date.” According to the original deal reached in early December between the U.S. and China, both countries have until March 1 to reach a new trade agreement, or the U.S. can impose additional tariffs on Chinese products.

    The first tax filing season under the new federal tax law is proving to be surprising, confusing — and occasionally frightening — for some Americans, especially those accustomed to getting money back from the government. DETROIT (AP) -- America's auto industry is bracing for a potential escalation in President Donald Trump's tariff war with the world, one that could weaken the global auto industry and economy, inflate car prices and trigger a backlash in Congress. The Commerce Department has sent the White House a report on whether imported vehicles and parts pose a threat to U.S. national security.

    How a 12-year Vanguard win streak makes it the ‘Amazon of wealth management’

    Economist Burton Malkeil has called the index fund “the most important financial innovation that has been created for the individual investor.” And one look at index-fund pioneer Vanguard’s performance over the past decade shows that many individual investors agree. Ben Carlson, director of institutional asset management at Ritholtz Wealth Management labeled Vanguard “the Amazon of wealth management,” when learning of the magnitude of Vanguard’s lead over the competition, saying in an interview with MarketWatch that the comparison is appropriate not only because both companies were leading innovators in their respective industries, but because they have used their scale to drive prices lower and build unprecedented brand loyalty. “Amazon is the first place you go to buy something, whether it’s the cheapest or not.

    A drop in U.S. stocks may be fast and furious, according to Elliott Wave theory

    While we expected the S&P 500 Index (SPX) to drop to 2,250-2,335 points to complete the a-wave of an a-b-c, larger-degree 4th wave correction, we also expected that the b-wave rally would take us back to at least 2,800 and even potentially higher. From that perspective, the market has been acting almost exactly according to the plans we set even before the S&P 500 broke 2,700. Last week, I noted a downside setup in place that would give us that downside consolidation we wanted to see for that [b] wave pullback.
