Global Markets Rise Behind News China-U.S. Trade Deal “90%” Done

April 3, 2019
By Vlad Karpel

All three major U.S. indices are riding multi-day winning streak and are on track to close in the green today as well. Stocks are receiving support from positive news regarding a possible China-U.S. trade deal that has been reported to be 90% done. With signs of successful meetings between the two sides, both in Beijing last week and in D.C. this week, coupled with positive PMI data from both countries, global trade sentiment has vastly improved. Still, Brexit uncertainty remains and continues to drag the pound down. Prime Minister May will cross party lines to meet with opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn today in hopes of establishing some commonalities for a possible Brexit deal. Earnings season is set to pick up with over 50 reports next week and almost triple that the following. The market has broken out of range and short-term support now sits at $280-284. Continue monitoring seasonal charts and 200-day moving average for guidance as the market is on its way to retest 52 weeks high of $294. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:

After several positive manufacturing reports from both the U.S. and China, this week’s news of solid progress on a deal that is “90% done,” according to U.S. Chamber of Commerce member Myron Brilliant, helped domestic and global markets further gains. The high-level discussions will likely preclude a meeting between President Xi and Trump many predict to happen this month. Commodities are also seeing wide-spread rallies with oil, gold, and many more rising significantly in 2019. Avocados, for example, displayed some of the biggest growth with 34% gains just yesterday. Talks of a hard-shutdown to the southern U.S. border by President Trump as well as recent California heatwaves likely spurred the surge.

Over in U.K., Prime Minister May is scheduled to meet with opposition party leader Corbyn as Brexit turmoil continues to show no clear path for an exit from the EU. The two leaders will try to establish commonalities between their respective goals, methods, and parties in order to present some deal before the EU’s deadline. May has previously offered her resignation for an agreed upon deal, but that did not seem to move the needle as over eight other plans have died on the Parliament floor, as well as May’s deal thrice. Several members of Parliament view this meeting as a betrayal of their party, for both May and Corbyn, however, with little progress since the previous deadline fall apart, this move seemed all but inevitable.

Other news to note includes Lyft slight rebound after a two-day tank following their IPO release, Bitcoin’s recent 10% surge, and GameStop’s stock harsh tumble post-earnings which widely missed expectations. Look for Constellation Brands to report earnings tomorrow while next week’s earnings feature Delta Airlines, Blackrock, and several major banks on Friday. Jobless claims for last week will release tomorrow and on Friday we will see unemployment rate and average hourly earnings for the month of March.
