    US STOCKS-Wall St dragged down by Iran tensions, trade worries; Fed in focus

    Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among a host of central bank policymakers scheduled to speak amid rising expectations of an interest rate cut for the first time since the financial crisis. The prospect of more monetary stimulus for the economy has helped Wall Street's main indexes rise a least 6.5% this month, with the S&P 500 hitting a record high last week. "We've just got a market here that has perhaps reached a level of fatigue," said Bill Northey, senior investment director at U.S. Bank Wealth Management in Minneapolis.

    Stocks Fall as 10-Year Yield Drops Back Below 2%: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks fell while gains in Treasuries pushed the 10-year yield below 2% as simmering geopolitical tensions and economic data damped investor appetite for risk. Gold jumped.The S&P 500 dropped for a third-straight session, the longest since May 9, as U.S. officials downplayed expectations of a resolution to the trade war ahead of highly-anticipated meeting between President Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping this week. The 10-year Treasury yield slipped back below 2%, a level that until last week it hadn’t breached in three years, as fresh consumer confidence and housing data added to worries the world’s largest economy is slowing.West Texas oil rose as investors weighed escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran against the possibility of OPEC+ extending production cuts. Gold jumped to the highest in six years and the yen hit the strongest since January against the dollar. German bund yields fell to a record.With stress between the U.S. and Iran building and the White House apparently playing down hopes of a trade breakthrough when Trump and China’s Xi Jinping meet this week, investors are finding few reasons to prolong the recent central bank-fueled rally. On Tuesday, traders will keep a close eye on Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, who discusses monetary policy in a speech in New York, amid bets that the central bank will make deep cuts to interest rates this year.There’s “the short-term headlines related to people watching the G-20 and the potential for any news related to the US-China negotiations. That’s one piece that in the shorter run is making the markets a little uneasy. The other one is related to the geopolitical tensions with Iran,” said Omar Aguilar, the chief investment officer for equities at Charles Schwab Investment Management. “The bigger picture still drives the markets, which is we have lower interest rates coming up and the market continues to place a big bet on a July rate cut by the Fed.”Elsewhere, Drugmaker Allergan surged after agreeing to be bought by AbbVie Inc.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Gold soars to 6-year high as trade, as Iran tensions mount

    Gold soared to almost a six-year high on Tuesday on escalating U.S.-Iran tensions and U.S.-Sino trade anxiety, leading traders to pile into safe-haven government debt and to snap up the yen and Swiss franc at the expense of the dollar. Gold has gained 10% in price so far this month, climbing above $1,400 an ounce for first time since August 2013 after briefly touching the psychological barrier on Monday. The dollar, meanwhile, fell to a three-month low against the euro and dropped to its weakest against the Japanese yen since early January as the prospect of an interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve knocked demand for the U.S. currency.

    Sally Beauty's stock bounces of near 9-year low; analyst says Amazon's beauty push might not trigger change

    Shares of Sally Beauty Holdings Inc. rallied 0.8% in morning trading, to bounce off the previous session's near 9-year low, after Instinet analyst Simeon Siegel said it was uncertain whether Amazon.com Inc.'s launch of its Professional Beauty Store will actually trigger change. The stock had tumbled 16.8% on Monday, the second-biggest one-day drop since it went public in November 2006, to close at the lowest price since November 2010. Siegel said that while Amazon's new beauty store will carry brands including Wella Color, RUSK and OPI Professional, all which are carried on Sally Beauty's website, many of those products are already widely available online, and on Amazon. "That said, beauty has largely been outside of [Amazon's] shares grab thus far..., so a decision to make a broader push into the category shouldn't be ignored," Siegel wrote in a note to clients. Meanwhile, Ulta Beauty Inc.'s stock inched up less than 0.1%, after falling 2.6% on Monday after the Amazon news. Sally Beauty's stock has lost 27% year to date and Ulta shares have rallied 42%, while the SPDR S&P Retail ETF has gained 1.5% and the S&P 500 has climbed 17%.
