    U.S. Stocks Climb, Dollar Falls on Fed-Cut Wagers: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks rebounded and the dollar fell after Federal Reserve Bank of New York President John Williams highlighted the need for swift action should policy makers conclude the economy is in trouble.Consumer and financial stocks led gains in the S&P 500 Index, while Treasury 10-year yields dropped. A positive outlook from Apple Inc. supplier’s Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.’s lifted chipmakers. The NYSE FANG+ Index slid on Netflix Inc.’s surprise loss of U.S. customers. A report that Iran made a “substantial” offer on its nuclear program in return for fewer sanctions gave a lift to equities that was later tempered by news that the U.S. shot down an Iranian drone. In after-hours trading, Microsoft Corp. and cybersecurity company CrowdStrike Holdings Inc. rallied after sales topped estimates.The futures market edged closer to the idea of a half-point U.S. rate cut this month, with fed funds now pricing in about 42 basis points of easing. Fed Vice Chairman Richard Clarida told Fox Business Network that policy makers shouldn’t wait for the economy to turn down to act. Cutting rates could help cushion some of the blow from uncertainty about trade that’s likely to prove persistent, according to Fed Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard.“We’re in a trade war, you’re seeing the impact on corporate earnings, you’re seeing the central banks forced to scramble to react to that,” Bob Michele, CIO and head of global fixed income at JPMorgan Asset Management, said in a Bloomberg TV interview.Elsewhere, oil slid to the lowest in almost a month as pessimism about a trade truce between the U.S. and China continued to dog markets, while the resumption of Russian pipeline flows fed worries about a supply glut.

Treasuries dropped and the dollar rose.The S&P 500 Index halted a five-day rally, with energy producers joining an oil sell-off and technology giants facing an antitrust showdown with Congress. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. jumped on better-than-estimated results in its trading unit, and JPMorgan Chase & Co. rebounded from losses triggered by a disappointing lending outlook. Benchmark 10-year yields climbed on solid data, then pared their surge after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank “will act as appropriate” amid increased uncertainties.Investors remained locked into the notion of a Fed rate cut this month even after strong retail sales, factory output and housing data. While Powell’s remarks resembled his July 10-11 testimony to U.S. lawmakers, they continued to support the case for monetary easing amid risks stemming from Trump’s trade policies and slower global growth.“Trade’s a big, big issue,” said Dave Campbell, a principal at San Francisco-based BOS, which manages about $4.5 billion. “There’s a lot of uncertainties -- all of these are weighing on people’s minds right now.”Elsewhere, Bitcoin slid below $10,000 just three weeks after surging above it for the first time in more than a year as U.S. legislators expressed deep skepticism about the viability of cryptocurrencies.
