Stock market report August 13 2019

US stock market report August 13 2019

US stock market had a nice rally as very soon after the open news sent the major US stock market indices higher and a buying sentiment for stocks was in place until the close of the trading session. The news for this stock market rally are the following:

President Trump delayed the new tariffs on a large batch of Chinese imports that were supposed to go into effect Sept. 1, and exempted some other Chinese imports altogether. The move deescalates Trump’s trade war with China, and amounts to a tacit acknowledgement by Trump that his tariffs might hurt American consumers too much.
Laptops, cellphones, gaming consoles, and other products imported from China won’t face a 10% tariff on Sept. 1, as expected. The Trump administration says the 10% tariffs on those products will go into effect on Dec. 15, instead. But the delay reveals an unwillingness by Trump to raise the cost of products many Americans find essential, suggesting he’s bluffing about ever imposing such a tariff.
The 10% tariff will still land Sept. 1 on other consumer imports from China, including some clothing, footwear, and toys. U.S. importers can apply for tariff exemptions. Another group of Chinese imports will be exempt, supposedly for national-security reasons. Research firm Sandhill Strategy estimates that the list of imports getting a tariff reprieve totals about $155 billion worth of imports per year. That would leave about $145 billion worth of goods subject to the new 10% tariff.

Stock Market Suffers Worst Day This Year As Dow Dives 3%

The stock market today dived at the open and sold off through the session, as China fired the latest shot in the ongoing trade war by slashing the value of its currency, the yuan. The Dow Jones Industrial Average headed toward a test of long-term support.

The Nasdaq cratered 3.5%, the S&P 500 plunged 3% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average crashed 2.9%. Small caps tracked by the Russell 2000 sold off 2.8%. Preliminary data showed higher volume on the NYSE and Nasdaq vs. Friday.

Stocks tumbled early as China let the yuan fallto its lowest level against the dollar in more than 10 years and reportedly suspended purchases of U.S. agricultural goods. That followed President Trump’s latest round of China tariffs announced last week.
