Major U.S. indices are recouping early morning loses and are on track to close in the green behind strong Nike corporate earnings and August home sales report. Yesterday, impeachment concerns shook markets as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced the formal inquiry. While long-term market fears regarding impeachment have seemed to ease today, lack of U.S.-China trade progress will continue to weigh on markets. The SPY is trading between $294-$302 and we believe the market is range-bound. We do not see the potential for the market to overshoot an all-time high of $302. Short-term support is near 50-days MA on SPY, $295, and we will look to buy when SPY is near $282 and sell near $300. With further volatility expected, we encourage maintaining clearly defined stop levels for all positions. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:
Markets have rebound following three straight days of trading lower amid impeachment and global trade concerns. On Tuesday, House Speaker Pelosi submitted an impeachment inquiry regarding President Trump’s comments in a White House call with Ukranian President in July. This marked the fourth time in U.S. history impeachment had been formally presented in Congress. Following the news, the White House released transcripts of the call. While long-term fears have seemingly eased today, further developments could surely affect markets. This coupled with the lack of progress in U.S.-China negotiations has affected markets poorly this week while positive economic reports continue to support it.
While earnings have been light lately, today’s Nike report provided a nice boost to the Dow after the major retailer reported earnings above expectations, sending shares up 5%. Also supporting markets today is the latest real estate data which shows a 7% rise in U.S. house sales in the last month. Phillip Morris is seeing shares up over 6% following news their merger talks with Altria Group have ended. Tomorrow, look for GDP revision, weekly jobless claims, and August pending home sales index to release and dictate markets.
