    Dow Sinks 200 Points after Trump Imposes Tariffs on China

    The markets responded negatively to the latest news of U.S. President Donald trump imposing a 25 percent tariff on up to $50 billion in Chinese goods by plunging over 200 points at the open. The measures by the Trump administration will affect Chinese goods "that contain industrially significant technologies" and that the action comes "in light of China's theft of intellectual property and technology and its other unfair trade practices," said Trump in a statement. In addition, Trump announced that the imposition of further tariffs could be on the horizon should China retaliate with tariffs of their own on American products, such as crops.

    Why Did the US Federal Reserve Turn Hawkish at Its June Meeting?

    As expected, the Federal Reserve increased the interest rate by 25 basis points after its June meeting, which concluded on June 13. The committee increased the target range of the federal funds rate to 1.75%–2.00%, and the surprisingly hawkish tone of its statement was a far cry from the cautionary tone it struck in its previous policy statements. The decision to increase the US interest rate (AGG) was unanimous with an 8-0 vote.

    Seasonal Summer Sell Signals: Myth or Reality?

    There are clearly reasons to continue giving this bull market the benefit of doubt, but the risks are rising and that means a defensive approach is warranted. While we won’t rule out new bull market highs as the year progresses, one should be cautious in committing new or additional money to stocks, particularly over the near-term. Over the 58 years since 1960, the S&P 500 has averaged a gain of 6.8% for the winter period, while the summer average is only 1.0%.

    Will Trade War 2.0 Disrupt Markets This Week?

    US markets (VOO) were surprisingly resilient for the week ending June 1 despite increased political uncertainty, Italy’s political drama, and renewed anxiety about trade tensions. US equity markets had a positive close in May. Tech and small caps leading the charge and this week’s price action will likely depend on how markets react to renewed trade tensions. Last week, the Trump Administration slapped tariffs on Europe, Canada, and China.

    Last week (ended May 25), the S&P 500 appreciated by 0.31% and closed at 2,721.3, helped primarily by reduced odds of a fourth rate hike this year. The US-North Korea summit took a new turn when Donald Trump canceled the summit, leading to some risk-off trading. However, the losses were limited for the S&P 500.

    How Political Uncertainty Could Drive Markets This Week

    Global markets mostly fell last week (ended May 25) as political uncertainty kept investors at bay. Donald Trump calling off the North Korea summit and later saying that the summit could still happen, political disturbances in Spain and Italy, and volatile crude oil prices all dragged down equity indexes. US indexes (VOO), however, showed a reduction in concerns about higher rates after the Fed indicated at its May meeting that it is alright with inflation overshooting its 2% target in the short term.

    Why President Trump Isn’t Happy with the US-China Trade Deal

    This came as a surprise to the markets, as the president’s comments stood in stark contrast to those made by the US Treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, who is heading the negotiations from the US side. Mnuchin said that the United States and China (MCHI) were close to a deal after a joint statement from both the sides was released on May 19, and the stock markets (VOO) rallied at the beginning of this week as US-China trade tensions seemed to be cooling off. Why was Trump unhappy?

    Consecutive S&P 500 Declines Have Hurt Leading Economic Index

    The S&P 500 Index (SPY) continued its negative run with another lower close in April. The Conference Board Leading Economic Index (or LEI) uses the performance of the S&P 500 Index (VOO) as one of the constituents of the LEI. The inclusion of the S&P 500 performance in the Conference Board Leading Economic Index (or LEI) is supported by econometric evidence, as some economists would argue that the stock markets are not a true reflection of the state of the economy.

    Why Volatility Could Rise Quickly This Week

    US equity indexes finished the week that ended on May 18 on a negative note despite reports indicating that US-China trade negotiations had resulted in China agreeing to reduce its trade surplus with the United States by $200 billion. In a joint statement released on May 19, the United States and China revealed that China would increase its imports of US products and that both sides would work to resolve their economic and trade concerns. Volatility in the equity markets (VOO) in the week, however, was influenced by higher bond yields and an appreciating US dollar, which were pushed higher by the increased economic divergence between the United States and other developed economies.

    Why Bond Yields Rose on Tuesday

    The April retail sales report was released on May 15, and the surprise reaction to this report was an increase in bond (BND) yields across the board. There are numerous ways to explain the spike in yields, and the retail (XRT) sales data only acted as a catalyst to the Treasury (GOVT) sell-off, which began a few hours before the retail sales data was released. With the US economy showing signs of continued improvements and other developed economies slowing down, chances are that the US could lead the tightening cycle, which could have led to an increase in bond yields on Tuesday.
