After President Donald Trump’s announcement about import tariffs on steel and aluminum on March 1, major US indexes such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), and the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) fell 1.3%, 1.7%, and 1.3%, respectively, on the day.
For the week ending March 16, the S&P 500 Index closed at 2,752.01, a fall of 1.2%, as news about a possible second round of import tariffs could be announced soon and because of the increased political uncertainty at the White House. Two of the major S&P 500 sectors, utilities (XLU) and the real estate (XHB), managed to record gains last week, while the financials (XLF) and the materials sectors were the worst-performing sectors last week. Large speculators of the S&P 500 Index increased their net bullish positions last week.
