6:30 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST
This past week began with the market expecting a quarter-point rate cut from the Federal Reserve and hoping for a sign that more were to come.
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
– Abraham Lincoln
Fed Chairman Jerome Powell delivered on the first, but called the cut a “midcycle adjustment,” dashing hopes for investors expecting more than one-and-done and causing stocks to tumble on Wednesday.
The selling picked up as Trump threated to impose tariffs on all Chinese exports to the United States. The announcement shocked markets on Thursday, producing a 600-point swing for the Dow and a continued sell-off on Friday.
The Dow broke below 27K on Thursday, then dipped below its 50-day moving average on Friday.
The index ended below 27K at 26,484, off -707 points for the week, down -2.60%.
