Major U.S. indices set new intraday highs as markets continue to maintain gains following last week’s U.S.-China agreement. Over in D.C., the House of Representatives have elected to impeach President Trump, sending the decision for impeachment over to the Senate, and for the most part not affecting markets. The next vote on impeachment will take place in January; also early next year, U.S. and Chinese trade representatives are planning to meet to discuss additional phases of the trade deal. November Core Inflation, Consumer Spending, and Personal Income reports are due tomorrow along with Q3 GDP Revision. With SPY short-term support currently at $315 and overhead resistance at $320, we will look to buy when the SPY is near $307 level. Additional volatility is expected and we encourage Market Commentary readers to maintain clearly defined stop levels for all positions. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:
Yesterday, the Dow and S&P snapped their multi-day streak by closing lower though all three major U.S. indices are on track to close in the green today. With last week’s “Phase One” trade deal agreement between U.S. and China supporting markets, the next round of negotiations in early January become instrumental. Additional details are still to come from this partial deal as well as plans for further negotiations. Also occurring next month, the next step in the impeachment inquiry will make its way to the Republican-majority Senate where a vote will be held. For the most part, impeachment proceedings have not impacted markets. Over in the U.K., the latest election provided Brexit clarity as they prepare for their latest Brexit deadline: January 31st. Globally, both Asian and European markets closed to mixed results. Tomorrow’s GDP revisions for Q3 will headline economic reports while the triple header of November data (Consumer Spending, Personal Income, and Core Inflation) will also influence markets. Next week, look out for November New Home Sales and Durable Goods data during the shortened trade week.
