U.S. Equities dropped from record highs in the wake of lower European and Asian equities, rounding out a lackluster finale to the third straight month of gains for global benchmarks. The US Dollar strengthened. The S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 and Dow Jones Industrial Average all finished lower as trading resumed on Wall Street after the Thanksgiving break. Shares of energy and consumer discretionary goods companies were the biggest decliners, with overall trading volume about 30% below the 30-day average. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slumped, while Asian shares closed lower. Treasuries were mixed as they returned to trading post-holiday. The US Dollar posted a ninth straight session of gains, the longest winning streak since January 2016. U.S. equity markets closed at 1 p.m. New York time. However, Financial markets started December with a risk-on mood following a better-than-expected reading on Chinese Manufacturing that added to evidence the global economy is turning a corner. Asian equity benchmarks rose, led by gains in Japan fuelled in part by a retreat in the Japanese Yen. S&P 500 Index futures edged up, though European contracts were little changed. Ten-year Treasury yields climbed to 1.82%, and their Japanese counterparts ticked up closer toward zero. The yen retreated. Sentiment could still be kept somewhat in check by the continuing lack of closure on a U.S.-China trade deal. China’s Global Times underscored that its government wants tariffs to be rolled back as part of “phase one.”
