    Global equities plunge on trade deal threat – S&P 500

    Despite solid rebounds for US and global equity averages on Friday 3rd May after the US Employment report, comments on Sunday 5th May from President Trump, regarding further tariffs on Chinese goods, have sent equity markets south today.
    This negative price action has reinforced negative price signals after the FOMC statement on Wednesday 1st May and leaves risks lower, both short-term and maybe on an intermediate-term basis.
    Here we spotlight the future on the broad, US benchmark index, the S&P 500.

    US equity indices question the immediate bull trend

    A rally and then a plunge back lower on Wednesday for the major US equity averages, after the FOMC rate decision, statement and conference.
    The tone from Fed Chairman Powell was that a rate cut in the near term is unlikely, which impacted negatively on US stock indices
    This has eased very short-term upside risks with markets previously at or near all-time highs, shifting the immediate threat to the downside.
    Here we put the spotlight on downside threats for the broad US benchmark average, the S&P 500 future.

    US and European equites threaten “melt ups”

    In articles here and here last week we highlighted the resurgence of the 2019 “risk on” phase for equities into late April with a bullish break from the S&P 500, the US benchmark average.
    Furthermore, European equity indices have also continued to extend their strong April bull run, with prospects for further gains into May.
    With both the European and US earnings season showing a positive outlook for the corporate world, the short- and intermediate-term threats remain to the upside, with the financial media highlighting risks of a “melt up” for US and potentially global equity markets.
    Here we spotlight both the S&P 500 and the German benchmark average, the DAX.

    Equites stay bullish and US$ soars, sending EURUSD bear signal

    A resilient consolidation tone for the major European equity averages over the past 24 hours, digesting solid gains to new 2019 cycle highs earlier this week, whilst the US benchmark average, the S&P 500, has stayed solid after soaring close to the record high from 2018.
    The current “risk on” phase for equities has been accompanied by US Dollar strength against major global currencies (though not against the Yen), echoing a still strong US economy with ongoing concerns for the global recovery.
    This robust US$ tone, alongside still weakening data in Europe has put downside pressures on EURUSD, which produced a negative technical signal Wednesday with a break below 1.1175 to a multi-year low.
