DOW JONES PRICE OUTLOOK: STOCK MARKET AT RISK AMID ESCALATING CHINA TENSION & ACCELERATING NEW VIRUS CASES

  • Dow Jones performance for 2Q-2020 recorded a spectacular 18% rally but is still lower by about 10% year-to-date due to sharp losses notched in February and March
  • USD/CNH price action has consolidated as global economic powerhouses US and China clash over the coronavirus pandemic and Hong Kong national security legislation
  • US Dollar to Chinese Yuan exchange rate could serve as a bellwether to Sino-American trade tension and where the Dow Jones Industrial Average might head in 3Q-2020

Equities have exploded higher over the last three months. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, for instance, staged a remarkable 18% gain during the second quarter of 2020. Other US equity indices, like the S&P 500 and Nasdaq, led the Dow with gains even more impressive. Recent stock market upside largely follows unparalleled amounts of liquidity and stimulus provided by central banks and governments around the world.

That said, rekindled US-China trade uncertainty, in addition to a plethora of other material downside risks, threaten to undermine the latest rally set forth by the Dow Jones and other stock market benchmarks. Seeing that the United States and China are the two largest economies in the world, bilateral trade and economic cooperation between Washington and Beijing remains vital to global GDP growth.

Also, escalating US-China tension has potential to spoil the phase one trade deal signed by President Trump and Vice Premier Liu He earlier this year. Over the several weeks, relations have deteriorated notably on the back of the freshly-signed Hong Kong national security law. In response, the US just added Chinese technology giants Huawei and ZTE to its list of national security threats, which likely cues up subsequent retaliation from Beijing.

Correspondingly, traders may want to keep close tabs on spot USD/CNH price action going forward considering the Dollar-Yuan has potential to serve as a US-China trade war gauge. In light of the inverse relationship typically observed between spot USD/CNH and the Dow Jones, a breakdown in the Chinese Yuan could create serious headwinds for stocks currently trading at astronomical valuations.
