Major U.S. indices pulled back today, along with markets worldwide, as continued signs of slowing global markets cast doubt on the state of the current global economy. Several factors likely influencing markets this week include Apple’s new streaming and news service, the conclusion of the Mueller probe, Friday’s inversion of the yield curve, and another Brexit vote. Also worth monitoring are recent moves by Boeing to improve safety and PR as well as Uber’s newest acquisition. Look for annualized GDP and labor data later this week as well as a handful of speeches from Fed Presidents, including Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco. With the SPY currently trading above its 200-day moving average, it is important to continue monitoring Seasonal Charts. We expect downward momentum if SPY trades below this level, $275. However, our long-term outlook remains bullish; for reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:
On Friday, global economic data showed signs of slowing which initiated losses in Asian, European, and U.S. markets. Some news that initially supported stocks today was the release of the Mueller report. Attorney General William Barr summarized the report in a statement declaring no collusion between the President and Russia in regards to the 2016 election. Mueller’s report detailed abuse of power by Michael Flynn and corporation by Paul Manafort but did not indicate the President of any crimes. Still, Barr stated the report “does not exonerate him,” which leaves some room for concern though most analysts have projected the report to boost most sectors. As details of the report continue to be made public, look for more market-swaying information from this report the days to come.
Apple Spring Event, taking place today, is set to debut two new services by the tech giant. First, Apple’s new streaming service made to compete with the like of Netflix and Hulu will be detailed, including format, pricing, and programming. Similarly to Netflix, and more recent moves by Hulu and Amazon, Apple will look to create and own its content. With Disney and NBC also on track to debut streaming services, the streaming landscape is about to become significantly more crowded. Apple has reportedly already spent over $1 billion on creating new content, recruiting the likes of Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, and J.J. Abrams. Also releasing today is Apple’s premium news service which will provide a subscription to multiple publishers and news outlets for a single monthly fee. Along with Apple Music, Apple will now also offer an all-inclusive subscription to all three services for one price.
Globally, Asian markets are trading significantly lower while European markets also closed in the red. Brexit uncertainty continues to worry European and global investors as the China-U.S. trade tension lingers. Prime Minister May will receive another confidence vote today, putting her leadership at stake ahead of the Brexit deadline. In Beijing, Chinese and U.S. officials will meet this week to talk trade and tariffs. Also worth monitoring are recent moves by Uber and Boeing. Uber is set to buy its Dubai-based rival Careem for $3.1 billion while Boeing will hold a summit on Wednesday for airline leaders and regulators to review the company’s steps at return the 737 MAX planes to commercial service.
