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

U.S. Stock Indexes Settle Mixed on Trade Uncertainty

The S&P 500 ($SPX) on Wednesday closed down by -3.60 (-0.12%), the Dow Jones Industrials index ($DOWI) closed down -11.40 (-0.04%), and the Nasdaq 100 Index ($IUXX) closed up +35.51 (+0.47%). U.S. stock indexes settled mixed Wednesday. Stocks on Wednesday opened higher on reduced U.S./China trade tensions and positive U.S. economic data. Trade tensions eased after U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin told CNBC in an interview today that negotiators were "about 90% of the way" to a trade deal with China before talks broke down and that he was "hopeful" that a trade deal between the U.S. and China can be found. Also, reports on Wednesday said that the U.S. is willing to suspend the next round of tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports while the U.S. and China prepare to resume trade negotiations. Energy stocks were stronger Wednesday as Aug WTI crude oil rallied more than +2% to a 1-month high. Wednesday's U.S. economic data was supportive for stocks after May core capital goods orders, a proxy for capital spending, rose +0.4%, stronger than expectations of +0.1%. Stocks gave up most of their gains Wednesday, however, after President Trump warned that "substantial additional U.S. tariffs" will be placed on Chinese goods if there is no progress on a trade deal when he meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping this Saturday at the G-20 Summit in Japan. The VIX volatility index ($VIX) on Wednesday fell by -0.07 to 16.21% from Tuesday's 2-week high of 16.68%. The VIX is moderately above last Thursday's 1-1/2 month low of 13.19%. The VIX also remains far below the early-June 5-week high of 19.75% and the early-May 5-1/2 month high of 23.38%.
