D&D Note (4.10.2018) ~ Markets Rally On Eased Trade War Concerns ~

A broad based rally was seen in the markets today after the President of China Xi Jinping gave positive open market comments last night to help ease concerns of a Trade War. While Xi did give a few jabs seemingly at Trump and the US neither were specifically named. Futures last night rose over 1% during the speech and followed through into cash trading today.

The DOW closed up 1.79% (428.90 points)

The S&P 500 closed up 1.67% (43.71 points)

The NASDAQ closed up 2.07% (143.96 points)

One of the main focuses today was the Capital Hill hearing involving the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Dressed in a suit and Facebook blue tie Mark was grilled by almost half of the US Senate. Perhaps the toughest questions were on whether the company is a monopoly and how the overall internet based advertising system works including cookies and retargeting. The FB stock rallied the most in years finishing up 4.50% at $165.04 a share.

The Energy sector was the leader of the day coinciding with the large gain in Oil of 3.58% at $65.69.

The 10YR yield rose to just under 2.80% while the 30YR yield remained UNCH at 3.017% further flattening the yield curve.

The interest rate sensitive sectors were the losers on the day with both Utilities and Real Estate sectors finishing lower on the session.

In a further sign of the continued global expansion Copper got a strong bid rising to $3.1375 up 1.97%.
