S&P 500 Equity Analysis and News

  • G20 Ceasefire on the Way
  • Mnuchin Jawboning, However, we Have Seen This Before

Ceasefire on the Way

Last week we noted that we where getting a sense of déjà vu ahead of the G20 summit with the upcoming meeting between President Trump and Xi likely to yield similar results to last November (full analysis), in which both parties agreed a ceasefire. Reports yesterday confirmed as much with sources noting that the US are set to delay more China tariffs as talks are expected to resume, as such, concerns over a further escalation in trade war tensions has eased.

Mnuchin Jawboning, However, we Have Seen This Before

The latest uptick in US equity futures has been spurred by comments from US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin who stated that the US-China trade deal is 90% complete. This appears to be typical jawboning from Mnuchin, given that these comments are largely a reiteration as to what has been said previously back in April and May. Thus, the recent bounce in equity markets seem to be somewhat dubious and are at risk of being pared.

S&P 500 | Technical Outlook

The S&P 500 remains elevated with the latest uptick attributed to comments from Mnuchin, which raises scope of a test of 2960-65 resistance, which represents the rising trendline from prior peaks in the index. However, with the weekly RSI showing a negative divergence there is a risk of a notable pullback in the index, which could accelerate on a break below 2865.
