Saturday Night Quarterback says (on a Sunday), For the week ahead expect…

... Wall Street to be hanging on the words of a Thursday, August 27 speech. Not the one that night where Donald Trump accepts the Republican Party nomination for President. That's unlikely to offer any surprises to the stock market. Instead the key speech that day is the one from Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell […]

China orders state-owned companies to halt purchases of U.S. pork and soybeans, putting trade deal in further jeopardy

China has told state-owned companies to halt purchases of soybeans and pork from the United States in response to President Donald Trump's announcement that his administration would begin the process of eliminating Hong Kong's special trade status. Chinese importers have cancelled 10,000 to 20,000 metric tons of American pork shipments--roughly one week's orders at recent […]

Even after yesterday’s rip-roaring gains, the S&P 500 is stuck–so what comes next?

Yesterday, May 18, the Standard & Poor's 500 closed at 2953. We've been here before. Several times, in fact. On May 8, the index closed at 2929.80. On April 29, the close was 2939. With the 200-day moving average at 2998.,56, even yesterday's big move doesn't qualify as a breakout to the upside. Today, as […]

Saturday Night Quarterback (on a Sunday) says, For the week ahead expect…

...China fireworks. We ended last week with the Commerce Department slapping new restrictions on the sale of any chip made with U.S. semiconductor manufacturing equipment to China's Huawei Technologies. (Which means that Taiwan Semiconductor Manuacturing's plans to build a fab in the United States would not give the company a way around the U.S. restrictions. […]

This round of U.S.-China trade war is still just words–so far

This week President Donald Trump mused about trashing the U.S.-China trade agreement or, maybe, eliminating the U.S.-China trading relationship completely because, Trump said, China is  to blame for the coronavirus outbreak. (An maybe the U.S. could replace China with Mexico, the President wondered.) 100 trade deals would not be worth the damage the pandemic has […]

With a China trade truce in place, the U.S.-European trade war moves to front burner

Well, that certainly didn't take long. With the ink barely dry on the Part 1 trade agreement between the United States and China, the European Union said that the deal could violate the rules of the World Trade Organization. EU Trade Commissioner Phil Hogan said his team will scrutinize whether China’s pledge to increase purchases […]

Now that the U.S. and China have signed that Part 1 trade deal, let the second guessing begin

The United States and China signed a Part 1 trade deal today that contained little in the way of positive surprises and an expected lack of detail. As analysts and economists struggled to fill in the blanks, much of the deeper dive wound up stressing the negatives in the deal. For example, although China pledged […]

Stocks slip on news that Part 1 trade agreement between U.S. and China won’t significantly reduce existing tariffs until after the November election

Wednesday is still likely to bring the signing of a Part 1 agreement in the U.S.-China trade war. But the public document is likely to have even fewer details than expected recently and to leave existing tariffs in place until after the Presidential election in November. In December the United States agreed to postpone a […]

China almost confirms January 15 deal signing

It's not exactly a confirmation of President Donald Trump's announcement that the Part 1 trade deal would be signed between the United States and China at the White House on January 15. But China has scheduled a high-level trade delegation for  travel to Washington from January 13 through 15. And the delegation will include China's […]
