China's Xi Jinping will speak Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of the nation's economic reforms amid concerns that the ongoing trade war will clip 2019 growth. Global stocks drifted lower Monday, pushing U.S. equity futures heading into red at the start of what is likely the final full trading week of the year, as investors remain cautious over the health of the world economy and remain focused on two key policy events in the coming days.

    [$$] U.S. Stocks Need a Santa Claus Rally to Avoid a Losing Year

    Investors hoping to avoid the first annual decline for major U.S. stock indexes since 2015 are dreaming of a Santa Claus rally.

Such a year-end boost will likely be necessary if the S&P 500 is to avoid finishing in the red. It is down 2.8% this year through Friday.

    Health Stocks Prepare for Market Jolt After Obamacare Ruling

    A judge sided with Texas late Friday in a lawsuit alleging that Congress’s decision in 2017 to kill a related tax penalty essentially voided the entire Affordable Care Act.

    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.
