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

U.S. Stocks Settle Lower on Fears of Escalation in the US/China Conflict

The S&P 500 ($SPX) on Wednesday closed down -8.09 (-0.28%), the Dow Jones Industrials index ($DOWI) is down -100.72 (-0.39%), and the Nasdaq 100 Index ($IUXX) closed down -30.36 (-0.41%). Stocks prices moved lower Wednesday on fears that an escalation of the US/China trade and tech conflict will depress the global economy after reports that the U.S. is considering blacklisting China's video-surveillance firms. Global technology stocks on Monday had already fallen sharply after the U.S. late last week blacklisted Huawei, potentially cutting it off from the U.S. software and semiconductors it needs to make its products. Technology stocks were also under pressure Wednesday, led by a nearly -11% plunge in Qualcomm, after U.S. New York District judge sided with the Federal Trade Commission in Tuesday night's decision that Qualcomm's licensing practices violated antitrust law. Also, negative carry-over from a decline in European stocks weighed on U.S. stock indexes on the increased chances of a no-deal Brexit in October as UK Prime Minister May's revised Brexit plan on Tuesday was panned by both Labour and Conservative party members. A slump in energy stocks Wednesday was another negative for stock indexes as July WTI crude oil dropped -2.71% after the EIA reported an unexpected increase in weekly crude and gasoline inventories. Stock indexes recovered from their worst levels after U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said President Trump is likely to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the end of June. After initially moving higher this morning, the VIX volatility fell -0.20 to 14.75% and posted a new 2-week low of 14.42%. The VIX index is well below last Thursday's 4-1/4 month high of 23.38%.
