Wall Street dips on Trump’s talk tweets
US indices fell but pared deeper losses into the close yesterday after US President Trump tweeted that China was not following through on commitments to buy more US agricultural products, just as the trade talks got underway in Shanghai after a three month hiatus. Brexit concerns are heightened after Boris Johnson’s tough stance on a Brexit deal. China’s PMI data and the Fed rate meeting are due today.

  • The US30 index snapped a two-day rising streak yesterday but recovered from three-day lows to close only slightly in the red
  • The 55-day moving average at 26,408 continues to accelerate away from the 100-day moving average at 26,264
  • The US FOMC meets later today and is widely expected to announce a 25bps cut to the benchmark rate (early Thursday, Singapore time). More interesting will be any forward guidance on the future path of rates and adjustments to the policy statement. Buckle up, it’s likely to be volatile.

  • The Germany30 index slumped the most in eight months amid Brexit concerns as the new British PM appears to be taking a hardline stance on any Brexit deal
  • The index is testing support at the 100-day moving average at 12,093, which has supported prices on a closing basis since February 14
  • German retail sales probably rose 0.5% m/m in June, according to the latest survey of economists. That almost covers May’s 0.6% decline and would be the strongest growth rate in four months.
