Wall Street drops on trade, recession fears

US indices fell for a second consecutive day yesterday, constantly pressured by the threat of prolonged US-China trade talks and the implications for global growth. Singapore’s second quarter growth was revised slightly higher but missed forecasts.

  • The US30 index fell the most in five days yesterday amid heightened recession concerns
  • The index remains trapped between the 55-day moving average at 26,469 and the 200-day moving average at 25,579
  • US consumer prices probably rose 0.3% m/m in July, the latest survey of analysts shows. That’s an acceleration from June’s 0.1% print. An above-forecast reading would question the Fed’s expected easing cycle.

  • The Singapore30 index fell for a second straight day yesterday and could fall further this morning following the worse-than-expected revision to second quarter growth
  • The index could test last week’s low, which in turn was the lowest since June 11
  • The Singapore economy contracted 3.3% q/q in the second quarter, the latest revision to growth data indicated. That’s an improvement from the first estimate of -3.4% but much worse than the -2.9% that had been expected.
