S&P 500 E-Mini Futures Market News and Commentary

U.S. Stocks Sink on US/China Trade Angst

The S&P 500 ($SPX) on Thursday closed down -34.03 (-1.19%), the Dow Jones Industrials index ($DOWI) closed down -286.14 (-1.11%), and the Nasdaq 100 Index ($IUXX) closed down -112.73 (-1.52%). U.S. stock indexes sold off Thursday with the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrials at 1-week lows and the Nasdaq 100 Index at a 1-3/4 month low. Concern that escalation of the US/China trade conflict will turn into a full blown trade war hammered stock prices Thursday. Commentary in China's state-sponsored People's Daily newspaper on Thursday said the U.S. is the biggest "troublemaker" in the international community and that some U.S. politicians are starting a "technology cold war" by blacklisting Huawei Technologies. Also, US/Chinese trade talks appear to be stalled after China's Ministry of Commerce said, "if the U.S. wants to resume talks, they should show sincerity and correct their wrong practices." Another bearish factor that weighed on stocks was Thursday's economic data that showed that momentum in global manufacturing has slowed after the Eurozone May Markit manufacturing PMI unexpectedly fell -0.2 to 47.7, weaker than expectations of +0.2 to 48.1, and after the U.S. May Markit manufacturing PMI fell -2.0 to 50.6, weaker than expectations of unchanged at 52.6 and the slowest pace of expansion in nearly 3 years. Energy stocks also took a hit Thursday as crude oil prices plunge by -5.71% to a 2-1/4 month low. The sell-off in stocks Thursday boosted the VIX volatility index by +2.17 to a 1-week high of 16.92% after it had fallen to a 2-week low Wednesday of 14.42%. The VIX index is still well below last Thursday's 4-1/4 month high of 23.38%.
