The Markets

Stocks drifted lower on Thursday as investors priced in the risk of a less dovish Fed when the committee meets next week.  The sentiment follows comments from ECB President Mario Draghi, who indicated that there was not a significant risk of an imminent recession in Europe.  The S&P 500 Index shed just over half of one percent, giving back the gain from the previous session.  Momentum indicators on the daily look continue to roll over, making the index appear top-heavy in the short-term.  Downside risks remain to the 50-day moving average, now at 2912.

On the hourly look, a trading range between 2975 and 3020 has developed.  A catalyst to fuel a break, one way or the other, may be required.  A negative momentum divergence with respect to MACD suggests buying demand has faded around these all-time high levels.

On the economic front, a report on durable goods orders in the US was released before Thursday’s opening bell.  The headline print of June’s report indicates that new orders increased by 2.0%, which is far ahead of the 0.5% analyst forecast. Excluding the volatile transportation component, the increase was 1.2%, also much better than the 0.2% consensus estimate. Stripping out the seasonal adjustments, the value of manufacturers’ new orders for durable goods industries actually increased by 6.2% in June, which is weaker than the 8.9% increase that is average for this time of year. The result places the year-to-date change higher by a mere 1.1%, which is firmly below the 4.5% increase that is average through the first half of the year. This is the weakest first half of the year performance since 2016, in the midst of the manufacturing recession.  Subscribers received our report on the subject, highlighting the drivers and why reason to be cautious may be warranted.  Signup now.
