Market Roundup: Week Ends with Phase-One Agreement with China

Indices closed down on Monday, dipping amid continued trade uncertainty. After the closing bell, President Trump said China was ready to talk and hopes the deal will be bigger than just a partial solution. The stock slide continued Tuesday, with computer chip makers tumbling on more trade turmoil. Progress was diminished when the Trump Administration announced it was blacklisting 28 Chinese corporations and organizations from importing U.S. technology because of alleged human rights violations. While tariffs on Chinese goods were scheduled to increase on Oct 15, talks were set for later in the week. In economic releases, Labor Department data showed the Producer Price Index fell 0.3% in September. The core measure, which discounts food and energy, dipped 0.3%. Indices closed with gains midweek following a report that China remained open to a partial trade deal providing no more tariffs are imposed. Meanwhile, the published Federal Open Market Committee minutes from September showed that the Fed sees a "clearer picture of protracted weakness." Elsewhere, crude oil prices dipped as the Energy Information Administration reported a jump in supplies for the fourth straight week. For the session, West Texas Intermediate crude shed 12 cents to settle at $52.51 a barrel. Indices continued the climb Thursday, with several Technology stocks rising on the hope of a China trade deal. In other news, initial jobless claims decreased last week as Labor Department figures showed first-time claims fell 10,000 to 210,000 in the week ended October 5. Stocks ticked up Friday on trade optimism. Negotiations have resulted in a substantial phase-one deal. Tariffs will not increase Oct 15, and talks will proceed in two or three phases.

Interview: The Center for Family Resources—Melanie Kagan and Lee Smith

The Center for Family Resources CEO Melanie Kagan and Director of Operations Lee Smith join “Money Talks” to share the organization’s mission and upcoming Thanks for Giving food drive. The Center for Family Resources (CFR) is a Cobb County-based nonprofit organization that works to stabilize and empower local families so they may become self-sufficient through financial stabilization, housing, and education. The organization offers multiple short-term housing programs, a GED prep program that provides one-on-one coaching and group classes, and an on-site food pantry with fresh produce and breads, a wide variety of canned goods, and other essentials like diapers, infant formula, and personal hygiene items, and many other services. They also focus on The CFR’s annual Thanks for Giving food drive. The CFR provides holiday food boxes distributed to low-income, Cobb County families during the Thanksgiving break. Boxes include the ingredients for families to cook their own traditional holiday meal. Additionally, since the week of Thanksgiving can be a strain on families’ food budgets while children are home from school, they provide extras like breakfast food, pasta, and peanut butter for those added meals. Phone: 770-428-2601 or Web: www.thecfr.org

Market Roundup: Dow and S&P Close Third Quarter with Gains

Both the S&P 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed on the positive side for the last day of the third quarter. The Technology sector was the best performer for the day while Energy stocks were the weakest. Tuesday’s action started in the green, but when the report broke that the ISM Manufacturing Index fell to its lowest level since June 2009, the market quickly tumbled into the red zone. Furthermore, U.S. Treasury bond yields fell as investors rushed to the safe-haven asset. Mid-week, stocks continued to drop with all major equity sectors losing ground during the trading session. ADP reported that 135,000 private sector jobs were added to the economy in September, missing the 152,000 analysts expected. Stocks closed at session highs on Thursday, after trading lower earlier in the day. All S&P sectors ended up closing with gains. The major indices closed Friday’s session in green territory, as the Utilities, Consumer and Healthcare sectors increased. Stocks jumped amid the release of September payroll data when the Labor Department figures reported 136,000 additions to nonfarm payrolls. While missing analysts’ forecast, the increase satisfied traders. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate fell to a 50-year low of 3.5%.
