Market Action

U.S. markets were volatile on Thursday and closed lower following another round of disappointing, but better-than-expected, economic news and escalated tensions with China over a new security law concerning Hong Kong. National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said the Trump administration is looking at a lot of options for a next phase coronavirus bill also helped bullish sentiment after the open. He added the administration is considering deductions for restaurants and travel and weighing a potential back-to-work bonus.

The late day weakness came into play after President Trump announced that he plans to host a news conference on Friday about China and that he was going to sign an executive order that would clamp down on social media companies for so-called political bias.

The S&P 500 slipped 0.2% to snap a 3-session winning streak following the late day pullback to 3,023. Near-term and upper support at 3,025-3,000 was cracked but held with a close below the latter and the 200-day moving average being a slightly bearish signal for a retest towards 2,975-2,950.

The Nasdaq was down 0.4% despite tagging a new monthly high of 9,523 and prior levels from early February. The fade to 9,345 afterwards breached but held current and upper support at 9,350-9,300 with a close below the 9,200 level signaling a possible near-term top.

The Dow lost 0.6% following the afternoon tumble to 25,358. Upper support at 25,500-25,250 failed to hold with a close below the latter signaling additional downside risk towards 25,000-24,750.

The Russell 2000 fell for the 1st time in 6 sessions after sinking 2.5% with the low tapping 1,387 ahead of the closing bell. Fresh and upper support at 1,400-1,385 was breached but held with a close below the latter signaling additional weakness towards 1,380-1,365.

Utilities led sector strength after zooming 3% while Healthcare and Real Estate gained 1.3% and 1.2%, respectively. Energy and Financials sank 2.8% and 1.6%, respectively, to pace sector laggards.

Global Economy

European markets settled higher as optimism over businesses returning to work and a massive stimulus plan for the European Union outweighed concerns over rising U.S./ China tensions.

France’s CAC 40 soared 1.8% and the Stoxx 600 rose 1.6%. The Belgium20 was higher by 1.5% and UK's FTSE 100 gained 1.2%. Germany's DAX 30 advanced 1.1%.

Asian markets were mixed for the 2nd-straight session after China’s parliament approved directly imposing national security legislation on Hong Kong to tackle secession, subversion, terrorism and foreign interference.

Japan’s Nikkei rallied 2.3% and Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 jumped 1.3%. China's Shanghai climbed 0.3%. Hong Kong's Hang Seng fell 0.7% and South Korea’s Kospi slipped 0.1%.

U.S. Economy

Initial Jobless Claims contracted -323,000 to 2,123,000, versus expectations of 2,100,000, after tumbling -241,000 to 2,446,000 previously. The 4-week moving average fell to 2,608,000 from 3,044,000.
