The last hour of US stocks trading is often referred to as the ‘’hour of power’’ such is the scale of moves (both up and down) often recorded by the major US Indices. Yesterday it would be better referred to as the ‘’four hours of power’’, with a large crack appearing under the market at exactly midday New York time with four hours of trading still to come. Financials (-4.2%) have led the slide in the S&P500, a predictable response to the ever-flattening US yield curve, where the 2/10s spread has made a new post-June 2017 low just beneath 10bps (11bps now). Adding to the malaise here have been comments from JP Morgan chief Jamie Dimon warning of flat earnings in the current quarter. It is not just about the yield curve though, with doubts about whether the Trump-Xi handshake and agreed 90-day moratorium on further tariff action was anything more than just that. For one, the US administration has already had to row back on Trump’s twitter claims that China ahead agreed to reduce tariffs on US auto imports while officials on the Chinese side have been notably mum on what was agreed last Sunday (currently being ‘’explained’’ by the absence of President Xi and other Chinese official from the mainland). This hit the Dow hard with the market falling 3% to record its fourth largest point drop in history.
