Futures Market News and Commentary

U.S. Stock Indexes Mixed as Middle East Tensions Continue to Weigh on the Market

The S&P 500 Index ($SPX) this morning is up by +0.47 (+0.02%), the Dow Jones Industrials Index ($DOWI) is down -38.87 (-0.14%), and the Nasdaq 100 Index ($IUXX) is up +6.35 (+0.08%). U.S. stock indexes are mixed this morning as stronger-than-expected U.S. economic data offsets heightened Middle East tensions. Today's U.S. economic data gave stocks a boost after Aug U.S. manufacturing production rose +0.5%, stronger than expectations of +0.2%, and Aug industrial production rose +0.6%, stronger than expectations of +0.2% and the biggest increase in a year. Also, the Sep NAHB housing market index unexpectedly rose +1 to an 11-month high of 68, stronger than expectations of unchanged at 66. Gains in stocks were limited by heightened geopolitical risks in the Middle East about a possible U.S. military strike against Iran after CBS reported today that the U.S. has identified the exact locations in Iran where more than 20 drones and cruise missiles were launched in Saturday's attack on Saudi oil facilities. Also, the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said today that Iran will not negotiate with the U.S. "on any level." Stocks also have support from expectations for the Fed on Wednesday to cut the fed funds target range after the Tue/Wed FOMC meeting by 25 bp to 1.75%-2.00% from 2.00%-2.25%. Weakness in energy producer stocks is negative for the market with crude prices down by more than 5% this morning on a Reuters report today that said Saudi Arabia is close to restoring 70% of its oil production lost in Saturday's drone strike and that it expects to return to full production in the next two to three weeks. The VIX S&P 500 Volatility Index ($VIX) today is up by +0.04 at 14.71%. The VIX is consolidating between the late-July 4-3/4 month low of 11.69% and the early-Aug 8-1/4 month high of 24.81%.
