18 April, 2019

News

  • Despite strong economic reports from China, U.S. shares were struggling but ended lower on Wednesday. The S&P 500 Health Care sector was noticeably weak as it finished the day 2.9% down. Qualcomm settled a battle with Apple, and the IBM reported revenue misses. Transportation stocks also showed strength due to solid earnings from UAL, CSX and KSU. As markets appear to have priced in the strong economic data, traders will be following the signals of whether the market will move higher or lower on Thursday.
  • U.S. wholesale inventories rose 0.2% after a 1.2% increase in January. Inventory growth continue to surpass the sales year-on-year, which would help hold back the prices.
  • It was reported yesterday that the Central Bank of Turkey has entered into a one-week swap totalling about $12bn with local banks to shore up foreign reserves. Analysts are estimating that the country lacks the foreign currency reserves to protect the Lira from sell-offs.
