Stocks Pared Earlier Gains

Author:   |    Publish date:


Stocks pared earlier gains. US stocks fell sharply on Wednesday after news of dismal corporate earnings that stoked recession fears. The sell-off sent the worst to Nasdaq (-4.73%), followed by S&P (-4.04%), Dow (-3.57%) and Russell (-3.56%) amid rebound in the Dollar index back to the 104 handle. Flight to safety was noted as yields fell across the board, with the inversions expanded to 5Y (2.89%), 7Y (2.91%) and 10Y (2.88%) at writing.

In the commodities market, recession fears sent crude below $106.60/bl while gold was on strong bid above $1,816.25/oz. Elsewhere, iron ore stalled at $132.60/tn as the market awaits a new catalyst for the next move.

In the FX space, bullish sentiments were short lived as  demand for the safe-haven Yen and Swiss returned across the board. Dollar demand was mixed with offers in the medium term, suggesting a temporary safe-haven rebound.

On Thursday, markets are expected to remain cautious while looking forward to earning reports from Palo Alto Networks (PANW), Kohl’s (KSS), Applied Materials (AMAT), BJ’s Wholesale (BJ), Decker’s Outdoor (DECK) and VF Corp (VFC) as well as the latest figures in US jobless claims, home sales, manufacturing index and leading indicators.

OUR PICK – No New Pick

We stay on the sideline. The least losses in Russell today might suggest that the pullback in sentiments is temporary. However, any dip below last Thursday’s low for major indexes could trigger more selling in the stock markets. No washout is evident yet to indicate that we are at a bottom. We decided to stay on the sideline for now.
