US stock market report September 24 2019

US stock market closed lower and volatility increased based on 3 major factors.

  1. Trump’s potential impeachment
  2. A lower than expected figure for consumer confidence
  3. Trump’s speech at the 2019 United Nations General Assembly which left open the scenario of not reaching any time soon a definite trade deal between US and China.

He took shots at China during his UN address today, accusing the nation of breaking promises to the international community to “adopt promised reforms.”

The US stock market closed marginally higher waiting for the FOMC decision today.

“The Fed is almost certain to cut its policy rate by another 25bp at next week’s FOMC meeting to between 1.75% and 2.00%,” Capital Economics wrote in a note Friday. “But rising core inflation, the still-solid incoming activity data and the temporary thaw in the US-China trade war all support our view that the Fed will then skip a meeting, before cutting rates one final time in December.”
