Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) starting this week under some pressure as Trump throws cold water on the chances of a shutdown deal
“The Nvdia profit warning is [hurting market sentiment] more than the Caterpillar earnings miss,” Larry Benedict, chief executive of the Opportunistic Trader told MarketWatch. “Slowing demand in China hit them hard,” he said, causing investors to worry that Chinese “demand has slowed more than people imagine.”
U.S. stocks are “starting this week under some pressure as Trump throws cold water on the chances of a shutdown deal, and after Chinese industrial production comes in light,” wrote Dave Lutz, head of ETFs at JonesTrading, in a note. Lutz highlighted elevated uncertainty with U.S.-China trade talks, the FOMC decision, the jobs report, and “angst” over the Brexit vote.
