»Posted by on Mar 12, 2019 in Announcements, Shop Talk, Uncategorized | 0 comments

We have the daily commentary below but thought we would start off with the announcement that you may or may not be aware of :New Micro Emini Futures https://www.cmegroup.com/cme-group-futures-exchange/micro-futures.html Stocks are steady this morning as bulls remain optimistic about U.S. and Chinese trade negotiations, as well as possible improvements in global growth during the second quarter of 2019. There’s been a few comments that China is perhaps starting to show signs of improvement following several quarters of deceleration. It seems that Chinese exports have finally started to improve.

Market Commentary

Stock bulls are trying to bounce back after three days of price pressure.

Stocks are steady to slightly lower this morning as traders continue to digest yesterday’s heavy wave of testimony in Washington. Two of the main driving forces in the market as of late have been positive trade negotiations with China and the change of rhetoric by the Fed. It just so happened, two of the most important players in those areas were called to testify in Washington. Top U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthize, testifying before the House Ways & Means Committee, told the congressional group that the U.S. and China still had hard work ahead to settle their trade dispute. Lighthizer said, “it is too early to predict the outcome” of negotiations between Washington and Beijing, and that “significant structural changes” were needed...
