    A Review of the US Financial Situation at the May FOMC Meeting

    In its meeting, the FOMC indicated that US financial market volatility had increased since its last meeting in March. Members felt that low-volatility (VXX) strategies had been less prevalent in February, leading to market turmoil. The May meeting minutes indicated that members felt that US financial conditions had somewhat tightened in the inter-meeting period but that they remained accommodative—a signal that members were comfortable with the further tightening of financial conditions.

    President Trump Cancels Summit With Kim Jong Un

    “Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump wrote in a letter. Late Wednesday, North Korea’s vice minister of foreign affairs had warned that if the U.S. called off the June 12 talks, a “nuclear-to-nuclear showdown” may ensue.

    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 Investors Are Ignoring Geopolitical Risks

    US equity indexes finished the week that ended May 11 on a positive note as equity market bulls took control of the proceedings. Given the muted response to the Iran nuclear deal pullout, we can expect a further fall in volatility this week.

  • The VIX is telling you to Netflix and Chill

    The VIX is telling you to Netflix and Chill

    Different people interpret the VIX different ways.  For some, a low VIX and dropping volatility signal a good time to invest, basically seeing the overall volatility and worry come down in the market.  For others, it is a sign of complacency.  Both are right.  When you look at last year’s low VIX persistent throughout the year, coupled with high returns of close to 20% for the S&P 500 (SPY) and close to 30% for the Nasdaq Comp (QQQ), one would conclude that lower VIX = better.  But in January when the VIX bottomed below 9 before ballooning to over 50 in February, low VIX = worse.  So which one?

    Will Stock Market Volatility Increase This Week?

    The week ending April 27 was filled with many surprises, which were mainly positive. The US GDP and Employee Cost Index were higher than the expectations, which cleared the way for the Fed to continue tightening the policy. The US ten-year (IEF) broke 3% for the first time in four years. The US dollar recoupled with US bond yields and surged against all of the majors. Last week, North Korea and South Korea’s presidents met in person. Also, the US will initiate trade talks with China. Both of these developments were positive for the markets. ...

    The S&P 500’s Monthly Decline—A Negative Sign for the Economy?

    The S&P 500 Index (SPY) continued its negative run for a second consecutive month in March, as trade war fears and geopolitical tensions made investors risk-averse. The S&P 500 Index declined ~3.9% in February and ~2.7% in March, with these declines primarily being driven by increased trade tensions rather than any change in the underlying fundamentals. The Conference Board Leading Economic Index (or LEI) uses the performance of the S&P 500 Index (VOO) as one the constituents of the LEI.

    Why Market Volatility Could Fall This Week

    Many risks that pushed stock market volatility higher in the last few weeks have started to retreat, which helped equity market indexes last week. President Trump paused further sanctions on Russia, and Trump’s planned meeting with Kim Jong Un after the latter said North Korea would end nuclear tests pushed a major geopolitical risk off the table for now. The risk of a flattening yield curve has also reversed as the US ten-year yield breached the February high on the back of renewed inflation expectations.

    Why Rising Inflation Failed to Raise Long-Term Yields

    The primary reason cited by the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) for holding off on interest rate hikes since 2016 was lagging inflation growth. Whenever the Fed signaled rate hikes, the yield curve flattened since investors were not convinced that inflation (TIP) growth would pick up the pace, which would limit the Fed’s ability to raise rates. The Fed has set a target of 2% inflation (VTIP) growth, at which point the economy is expected to be running at a normal pace.

    Global Market Volatility Rises, Geopolitical Risks Are Back

    There are some reports that the US could press for more sanctions on Russia this week, which could increase the volatility in global indexes. Apart from geopolitical issues, President Trump’s legal issues and China’s trade issues could also keep investors away from the markets. Markets are hoping for a solid earnings season, which kicked off last week.

    FOMC Members Reviewed the US Financial Situation

    The FOMC staff review indicated that US financial markets have been turbulent since the last meeting, which resulted in increased equity market volatility (VXX) and lower equity (VOO) asset prices. The reason cited for the increased equity market volatility was the surprising uptick in average hourly earnings in the January employment report, which made investors concerned about higher inflation and the interest rate increase. ...

    Trending: Soybean Prices Whipsaw on Trade War Fears

    China retaliated by floating a 25% levy on U.S. soybean imports, sending the commodity’s price plunging and gearing up for a high-stakes clash between the two countries. While soybeans ranked first on the list, it also caused Brazil to enter the podium due to its position as the second-largest soybean producer in the world and also a potential beneficiary of the trade spat between the U.S. and China. Homebuilders came in third as new home orders surged amid a strong housing demand that benefits from low unemployment and rising wages. Volatility continued to be of interest as markets ebb and flow amid global political uncertainty, while small-cap value equities are appealing to investors who just got out of the big names.
