After logging one of its worst weeks since the start of 2018, The Dow Jones continues to falter, dropping another 400 points today. Further trade threats by President Trump seem to be taking their toll on the market as all three major U.S. indices are in the red today. Similarly, S&P, Dow, and Nasdaq futures are all moderately down. Markets have certainly faced better days but as we’ve seen in 2018 more than once, the market can surely bend but does not break. With major selloffs in early February and late March, all occurring near similar headline-grabbing conflicts and events, the market has been able to rebound fairly well and for the most part remains in the green for 2018. With this last selloff, I recommend traders look to sell into the rallies and buy into the dips.

After Trump asked Congress to identify $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to place tariffs on last week, markets slumped and once again brought trade tension between U.S. and China to a new high. To add fuel to the fire, over the weekend Trump announced another set of threats in the form of tariffs, this time aimed at European cars entering the U.S., as a response to the recently implemented tariffs on U.S. goods from the European Union. The tariff-off has surely worn out markets and taken its toll on buyers as we are in the midst of another large selloff but looking into past selloffs, investors should carry some optimism in the American economy which has been able to rebound from similar instances. Globally, markets have not fared well last week as both European and Chinese markets traded lower, while, surprisingly, both the dollar and gold also finished lower.
A good start to the rebound could come in the form of positive economic data, which has helped in the past and we’ll look to help now also. We will receive consumer confidence and housing index reports today while home sales and further trade data to will be made available tomorrow. The week in economic data releases will finish with a report on consumer sentiment on Friday. This week will also lend a large handful of Fed Official speeches as Dallas, Atlanta, Boston, and St. Louis Fed Presidents are all set to speak throughout the week while Fed Vice Chairman Randal Quarles will deliver a speech on international bank regulation on Wednesday. These events will surely shed light on future monetary policies and market outlook and will be good indicators of how American markets are handling the selloffs and volatility.
