US stocks drop for second straight day
Jun 07,2017

U.S. stocks fell for a second session on Tuesday, 07 June 2017 as market sentiment turned jittery ahead of a U.K. general election and uncertainties associated with former Federal Bureau of Investigation boss James Comeys testimony to the Senate later this week.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 47.81 points, or 0.2%, to end at 21,136.23. The Nasdaq Composite Index slid 20.63 points, or 0.3%, to close at 6,275.06. The S&P 500 dropped 6.77 points, or 0.3%, to close at 2,429.33, with consumer discretionary and industrials leading the losses. Wal-Mart and Boeing were the top Dow decliners.

Investors were in a cautious mood as they wait for former FBI director Jim Comeys Senate appearance, the outcome of the U.K. general election, and a policy meeting of the European Central Bank, all on Thursday.

The cautious stance in turn bolstered demand for assets perceived as havens such as U.S. Treasurys, gold and the Japanese yen. Haven appetite was also fueled in part on concerns about a diplomatic row between Qatar and other Middle Eastern nations.

However, despite investors caution, the equity market kept its loss to a minimum throughout most of Tuesdays session. The technology sector played a huge role in keeping the broader market afloat for most of the day.

Weakness in the U.S. dollar, with the ICE U.S. Dollar Index edging down by 0.3%, and some losses among U.S. equities, helped to lift investment demand for gold.

But this week also has brought a rift between Qatar and other Mideast nations, helping to further boost golds appeal as a hedge against uncertainty.

Gold for August delivery rose $14.80, or 1.2%, to settle at $1,297.50 an ounce. Prices extended their streak of gains into a third-consecutive session and finished at the highest for a most-active contract since 4 Nov 2016. July silver rose 12.9 cents, or 0.7%, to $17.71 an ounce.

Oil staged a rebound to settle higher on Tuesday, 06 June 2017 as traders bet that U.S. government data will show a ninth consecutive weekly decline in crude supplies, and concerns surrounding Qatars diplomatic crisis eased.

On the New York Mercantile Exchange, July West Texas Intermediate crude added 79 cents, or 1.7%, to settle at $48.19 a barrel after tapping lows under $47. August Brent crude on Londons ICE Futures exchange rose 65 cents, or 1.3%, to $50.12 a barrel.

In a monthly report issued on Tuesday, the EIA raised its production outlook for this year and next. For 2018, it sees average output of 10.01 million barrels a day, up 0.4% from its previous forecast, and for 2017, it forecast 9.33 million barrels a day, up 0.3% from last months forecast. The government agency also cut its WTI and Brent oil-price forecasts for next year.

Among economic report expected for the day, the number of job openings in the U.S. rose in April to a record high, but the pace of hiring slipped to a one-year low in another sign the economy is running out of people with enough skills to fill empty positions.

Shares in Apple rose 0.3% after dropping 1% on Monday. That fall came after Apple unveiled its HomePod smart speaker and other new offerings.

Tomorrow, investors will receive the weekly MBA Mortgage Applications Index and April Consumer Credit (consensus $15.0 billion). The two reports will cross the wires at 7:00 ET and 15:00 ET, respectively.

US stocks end in the red
Jun 06,2017

U.S. stocks closed lower on Monday, 05 June 2017, slightly below record levels, as investors grappled with a variety of geopolitical issues, such as terrorist attacks in London ahead of the U.K. election and the scheduled public testimony of fired Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 22.25 points, or 0.1%, to 21,184.04. The Nasdaq Composite Index closed down 10.11 points, or 0.2%, to 6,295.68, after inching up to an intraday record of 6,310.62 in early trading. The S&P 500 declined 2.97 points, or 0.1%, to finish at 2,436.10.

Seven of the 11 sectors finishing lower, with utilities, materials and industrials leading decliners. Dow was led lower by shares of Apple and United Technologies.

This week will deliver testimony by former FBI head Comey, as well as the U.K. general election, and a European Central Bank meeting. Separately, the recent terror attack in the U.K. could amplify concerns, while a rift among Gulf states, which led to a rise in crude-oil prices, could further dent sentiment.

U.S. economic data released Monday were mixed, with a government report showing that the productivity of American companies and their employees was unchanged in the first three months of this year, instead of declining at a 0.6% annual rate.

The Institute for Supply Management said its nonmanufacturing index fell 0.6 points to 56.9% in May, while the Commerce Department reported that factory orders dipped 0.2% in April.

Bullion prices ended higher at Comex on Monday, 05 June 2017 at Comex. Gold prices scored a second-straight session of gains on Monday, holding ground at a six-week high as global markets absorbed weekend terrorist attacks in London and investors awaited the outcome of the European Central Bank meeting and U.K. general election later this week.

August gold rose $2.50, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,282.70 an ounce. July silver rose 5.6 cents, or 0.3%, to $17.581 an ounce.

Crude oil prices finished lower on Monday, 05 June 2017 at Nymex as Saudi Arabia and three other countries cut ties with Qatar, raising uncertainty about Middle East oil production. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates all severed diplomatic ties with Doha on Monday, accusing it of meddling in their internal affairs and backing terrorism, which the country denies.

On the New York Mercantile Exchange, July West Texas Intermediate crude fell 26 cents, or 0.6%, to settle at $47.40 a barrel. August Brent crude on Londons ICE Futures exchange slipped 48 cents, or 1%, to $49.47 a barrel. The settlements for both benchmark crudes were the lowest in just under a month.

U.S. Treasuries settled modestly lower across the board with the benchmark 10-yr yield climbing two basis points to 2.18%. Meanwhile, the U.S. Dollar Index added 0.2% with the greenback adding 0.2% and 0.1%, respectively, against the euro and the Japanese yen.
