G20 Summit Begins Tomorrow, Stocks Slide and Rebound Today

November 29, 2018
By Vlad Karpel

U.S. Stocks started the day trading slightly lower, losing steam from the Black Friday/Cyber Monday retail-push that helped stocks to a three-day rally, before recouping losses in the late afternoon. It looks like the market has formed the bottom after this week’s impressive rally and investors should consider buying on any corrections. Also assisting stocks was the renewed sense of optimism in global trade with the upcoming G20 summit, scheduled to begin tomorrow. With world leaders set to meet in Argentina, there is hope global trade relations could be improved and the recent tariff back and forth between China and the U.S could be addressed. Other likely points of interest for G20-attendees looks to be global economic growth, slumping oil, and climate change. The market decline also comes one day after Fed Chairman Powell delivered a dovish speech that helped stocks and bonds rally. More news set to hold investors attention today looks to be the remaining release schedule of economic reports including minutes from the early November FOMC meeting, Pending Home Sales, Weekly Jobless Claims, and Core Inflation. Current SPY overhead resistance is at $280. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:

Hosting both President Trump and President Xi, the G20 summit will provide a good platform for the two leaders currently embattled in tariff-off to build the framework for a potential deal or future negotiations to improve trade relations and halt the tariff escalation. Oil slid in early morning action, dropping below $50 a barrel for the first time this year, before mounting a rebound to hover around $51. Look for more on news on oil to also come from the upcoming G20 summit were leaders from Russia and Saudi Arabia will be present.

Chairman Powell’s lighter, dovish comments were received well as they helped support stocks through a midday rally yesterday that sustained the impressive three-day rally. Still, yesterday’s optimism looks to be weighed down today by the recently released economic reports. U.S. home sales slid in October while unemployment rose last week, and is at its highest in the last six months. Year-over-year inflation remained at 2% while consumer spending and income slightly rose for October. Today’s downward movement coupled with the modest economic reports point to looming concerns and uncertainty regarding upcoming global trade negotiations.

Some market-movers to note today include Abercrombie & Fitch Co., which is currently up 20% after earnings released today beat estimations, and Dollar Tree, currently up 5% and also received a nice boost from positive earnings. Twitter is sliding, down 6%, after a recent report pointed out Fox News and their correspondents have boycotted the platform and haven’t posted since November 8th. Globally, Asian stocks lowered today while European markets were modestly up.

Using the “^GSPC” symbol to analyze the S&P 500, our 10-day prediction window shows mixed signals. Today’s vector figure of +1.35% moves to -2.84% in five trading sessions. The predicted close for tomorrow is 2,788.70. Prediction data is uploaded after market close at 6 p.m., CST. Today’s data is based on market signals from the previous trading session.
