Squawk / 5 hours agoEquites still aiming lower into the Fed rate decision
A further “risk off” move across global equity markets on Tuesday (as seen from mid-December), and as we highlighted in yesterday’s report here, driven by US equity averages breaking through Q4 lows and now in the case of the S&P 500 to prod the 2018 low.
Additionally, European equity averages have pushed down close to recent Q4 and 2018 lows, with the threat for more negative activity here too.
The macroeconomic focus today is on the FOMC rate decision, where a rate hike is expected, but the extent (or not) to which the Fed shifts to more dovish will be key for equity markets into year-end (and likely January 2019).
Here we focus on the UK and German equity benchmarks, the FTSE 100 and DAX.

Squawk / Yesterday at 6:49 GMTEquites plunge again
The mid-December “risk off” moves across global financial markets (reacting to fears of a global slowdown), were reinforced on Monday by US equity averages plunging through recent Q4 lows.
Moreover, this has placed the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the Nasdaq 100 and the S&P 500 all close to he 2018 lows, set in Q1.
Furthermore, European equity indices have also been pulled down close to recent Q4 and 2018 lows, with risks for more bearish developments here too.
Below we spotlight the S&P 500 E-mini future and the pan-European equity benchmark, the DJ Euro STOXX 50.
