US viewership of the 2019 Women's World Cup final was 22% higher than the 2018 men's final

On Sunday, a crowd of nearly 60,000 people gathered at France’s Parc Olympique Lyonnais to watch as the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) defeated the Netherlands 2-0 in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final.

Back in the U.S., millions more were watching. According to a statement from Fox Sports, citing data from Nielsen, approximately 14.3 million U.S. viewers tuned in to the final match on television, compared to 11.4 million for the 2018 Men’s World Cup Final, a 22% U.S. viewership boost.

Fox Sports’ statement reports that online streaming viewership peaked at roughly 20 million, making it the most-watched soccer match on English-language television, men’s or women’s, in the U.S. since the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup final, which delivered 25.4 million viewers.

According to CNN, an additional 1.6 million viewers watched the final match in Spanish on Telemundo.

The 2015 Women’s World Cup Final in Canada aired at night in the U.S., while the 2019 Women’s World Cup Final in France aired earlier in the day. The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final also had to compete for viewers with the Men’s Concacaf Gold Cup final and the Men’s Copa América final, which both took place on Sunday as well.

USWNT captain Megan Rapinoe called the scheduling of all three matches on the same day “ridiculous and disappointing. ”

Despite these challenges, the 2019 championship game set a record for online streaming for Fox Sports. The match delivered an average minute audience of 289,000 viewers for the network — up 402% from the 2015 Women’s World Cup — making it the most-streamed women’s final in history.

Fox Sports reports that 17.8 million people viewed the 2019 final match on social media, an increase of 18% on Twitter and YouTube, compared to the men’s final in 2018.

According to The Wall Street Journal, U.S. women’s soccer games have generated more revenue for the USSF than U.S. men’s games over the past three years, and according to Nike, the 2019 women’s stadium home jersey is the top-selling soccer jersey, men’s or women’s, ever sold on Nike.com in one season.

China is urging the US to cancel a $2.2 billion arms sale to Taiwan

US-made M60 A3 tanks are fired during a life-fire drill on May 25, 2017.

China has asked the U.S. to cancel any planned arms sale to Taiwan, accusing Washington of interfering in domestic Chinese affairs.

On Monday, the Pentagon announced to Congress it is likely to make a major sale of arms to the East Asian state when it outlined a $2.2 billion deal to provide tanks, anti-aircraft missiles and related equipment.

Taiwan is officially known as the Republic of China (ROC), whereas mainland China to its west is known as the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Beijing policy dictates that China will refuse diplomatic relations with any country that recognizes the island as a sovereign state.

Added to that historical tension, the military sale comes at a time when relations between Washington and Beijing are at a particularly low ebb due to the ongoing trade war.

China’s foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters Tuesday that the sale of weapons “seriously violates the one-China principle,” and “grossly interferes in China’s internal affairs and undermines China’s sovereignty and security interests.”

Geng added that China had already lodged formal complaints opposing any sale through “diplomatic channels, “and urged Washington that to avoid to disrupting stability in the Taiwan Strait, it must “immediately cancel the planned arms sale and stop military relations with Taipei.”

The possible deal would include 108 General Dynamics M1A2T Abrams tanks and 250 Stinger missiles. The sale could also include mounted machine guns and ammunitions.

In 1982, the United States issued the “Six Assurances” — six foreign policy principles designed to reassure Taiwan that it would continue to support the island even in the absence of formal diplomatic relations.

In a statement on its English-language website, the Taiwan Presidential Office expressed “sincere thanks” to the United States for helping the island strengthen its defense.

What to watch in the market in the week ahead: Stocks on track for best first half in 22 years

The fate of U.S.-China trade talks could play out in the week ahead, and that could set the tone for markets and the economy in the second half of the year. Stocks set new highs in the past week, after the Federal Reserve signaled it was ready to cut interest rates if necessary, and Fed Chair Jerome Powell said trade and the global economy are two factors the Fed is watching. The S&P 500 was on track, as of Friday, to score a more than 17.6% gain for the first half, which ends Friday. If it stays at that level that would be the best first half performance since 1997, when the S&P was up 19.4% in the first six months. The big event in the coming week has been as anticipated for weeks, and it could sway sentiment for weeks to come. At the end of the week, the G-20 meets in Osaka Japan for meetings Friday and Saturday.

‘Could go either way’

President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are expected to have their own dinner meeting at the G-20 next weekend, following discussions between their trade representatives. That meeting could decide how trade negotiations go forward, and whether the U.S. proceeds with another round of tariffs, this time on $300 billion in goods. “Everybody knows the Trump, Xi meeting could go either way,” said Marc Chandler, chief market strategist at Bannockburn Global Forex. “I think everyone expects a new tariff freeze. That the $300 billion won’t go into effect. The most you can hope for out of G-20 meeting is the tariffs are where they are right now, and there’s no more escalation.That also means China will not release the list of companies they won’t do business with.” Chandler said he will be looking for signaling from Trump and Xi on whether they are working on a deal that would be just on the trade topics, or bigger issues like North Korea and differences on the South China Sea. “I do think the G-20 is quite important in that there’s not question in recent months, the trade war started to really move into measures of confidence and measures of manufacturing activity,” said Ethan Harris, head of global economics at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Harris said he expects a positive message with an agreement of no further escalation, but probably not signs of significant progress. “I think the vibes coming out of it will be modestly positive,” he said. “Whether there’s an escalation to the next round of China tariffs is going to set the theme for the rest of the year. Even if tariffs on China are reversed, or partly reversed, at some point, every time there’s an escalation or temporary escalation, it’s another kind of blow to confidence,” he said. Harris said there’s the same risk as after the Trump, Xi meeting at the last G-20, where it was a positive tone but there was little progress afterwards and the markets then reacted negatively. “I think there’s been this broad increased awareness from every economist that the trade war is starting to have noticeable impact. Further escalation with China would be quite a big signal. If the Trump administration puts tariffs on all the Chinese products it roughly doubles the size of the trade war and it sends a very strong message that there are very few constraints on where [Trump] goes next,” he said.

Powell and data

Besides the meeting between Trump and Xi, the market focus will be on anything that could provide clues on what the Fed or even the European Central Bank will do, after ECB President Mario Draghi last week basically promised a new era of easing. Consumer price inflation data is expected for the euro zone, and on Friday, the U.S. personal consumption expenditure data is released, including the PCE deflator, a major inflation indicator for the Fed. There are also a few Fed speakers, including Powell who speaks at the Council on Foreign Relations Tuesday. “It’s probably going to be a big picture kind of talk about the broader challenges of the Fed,” said Ethan Harris, head of global economics at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “They’re certainly going to ask questions about political influence at the Fed, and he’s going to dodge those. I think what I’m waiting for him to comment on is what it is they’re looking for to determine whether they’re going to cut in July or not.” Harris said Powell is not likely to say anything he did not reveal at his press briefing in the past week, and the big focus will be on the lead up to the weekend G-20. Falling interest rates and rising oil prices were two big factors in the market int he past week. The 10-year Treasury yield dipped briefly below 2%, a near 3-year low, as the Fed signaled its willingness to cut interest rates. “Should we get some sort of trade agreement that would be a nice pop to the [stock] market, but that could take the rate cut off the table,” said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA. Stovall said the stock market will also be watching oil after its rapid run higher, and the events in the Middle East surrounding Iran. West Texas Intermediate futures were up more than 9% in the past week, to $57.43. “The old adage is every $10 increase in the price of oil takes off 20 to 25 basis points off of real GDP growth,” he said. Stovall said stocks have had a solid run so far this year, but they may face some rocky times between now and the end of the summer. “For the rest of this ‘sell in May’ period we could be facing some challenges, headwinds. I think we’ will still end higher on the year. I think the seasonally optimistic September to November period will kick in but there will be a lot of challenges…will the Fed be cutting rates? what are the growth prospects?” he said.

A key manufacturing gauge just saw its biggest one-month decline in 18 years

A closely followed gauge of manufacturing in the New York area fell this month to its lowest level in nearly three years.

The Empire State Manufacturing Index tumbled to a -8.6 reading from 17.8 in May, a 26.4-point drop that was the biggest slide for a data series that goes back to 2001 and well below Wall Street expectations of 11.5. In all, 22% of respondents reported that conditions had improved since May while 30% said conditions worsened, according to the index, compiled by the New York Federal Reserve and indicating the difference between plans to expand and contract.

It was the lowest reading and first negative print since October 2016 and comes amid growing worries about where the broader U.S. economy is heading and what impact the ongoing trade war will have on conditions.

Internally, the measure showed sharply diminished business expectations across a number of categories.

Net new orders collapsed 22 points to -12 while shipments declined 7 points to 9.7.

Employment also looked bleak, falling to -3.5, its first negative print in more than two years. The average work week also declined to -2.2, while the prices paid component was little changed at 27.8. However, the prices received index declined 6 points to 6.8, the fourth month in a row for a decline “pointing to an ongoing deceleration in selling price increases,” the release said.

“Bottom line, and I’ll be blunt, this number was terrible. It’s hard not to think this is all about tariffs and what it is doing to business confidence,” Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group, said in a note. “We don’t even need actual tariffs, just the threat of them now on anything and anybody to address issues that have nothing to do with trade also adds a whole new layer of uncertainty.”

Businesses also were pessimistic about the road ahead.

Respondents to the survey pointed to declining business conditions, with a six-month expectations reading falling 5 points to 25.7. Future orders and shipments fell by a similar amount.

Also, the capital expenditures index, a measure of where businesses plan on investing in new equipment and plants, tumbled 16 points to 10.5, while the technology spending index slumped 10 points to 12.8.

The world's largest wealth fund picked up $22 billion worth of stocks during 2018 rout

The world’s biggest sovereign wealth fund went on a stock buying spree during the market turmoil at the end of 2018.

Norges Bank, which manages Norway’s $1 trillion oil-funded wealth pot, said it bought 185 billion crowns ($21.7 billion) worth of equities, with the bulk of purchases coming in November and December.

The U.S. stock market had its worst December since the Great Depression as investors feared trade tensions with China and rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.

Despite the Norges Bank purchases, the fund’s overall market value dipped over the course of 2018 by 6.1 percent, marking a steep reverse from the 13.7 percent growth witnessed in 2017.

“This is the first time that the fund has had a considerable decline in value,” CEO Yngve Slyngstad told a news conference on Wednesday. “The only other time was a slight decline in 2002.”

The bank said the fund’s market value was $967 million at 31 December 2018. On the same day, 66.3 percent was invested in equities, 3 percent in unlisted real estate and 30.7 percent in fixed income.

In 2017, Norges Bank said it intended to raise its equity allocation over time to 70 percent.

During 2018, equity investments for the fund returned a loss of 9.5 percent, while unlisted real estate investments gained 7.5 percent, and fixed-income investments returned 0.6 percent.

At the end of 2018, the fund’s biggest equity holdings were in Microsoft ($7.5 billion), Apple ($7.3 billion), Alphabet ($6.7 billion), Amazon ($6.4 billion), Nestle ($6.3 billion) and Royal Dutch Shell ($6 billion).

After a strong start to 2019 for stocks, the Norges Bank website said the fund is currently valued at $1.03 trillion.

That $22 trillion national debt number is huge, but here's what it really means

There are two more relevant metrics, though, when thinking about national debt.

One is the percentage of debt as compared to gross domestic product. That’s an important measure because it gauges both the ability of the government to pay its tab through growth, and because it helps measure bang for the buck in terms of how much growth the debt has helped generate.

Total debt compared to the economy remained pretty low for decades until it began to climb in the early 1980s while President Ronald Reagan fought the Cold War against the former Soviet Union.

Debt to GDP was about 30.6 percent when Reagan took office in 1981, then steadily climbed to a peak of 65.3 percent in mid-1995, according to data from the St. Louis Federal Reserve. Then-President Bill Clinton and the Republican-controlled Congress eventually carved out a short-lived government surplus, resulting in less of a need to borrow and the level to fall to 30.9 percent in the second quarter of 2001.

From there, borrowing to finance two wars along with two recessions sent debt to GDP to 77.3 percent by the time Obama took office. When Obama left, the level had risen to 103.6 percent.

Under Trump, there’s been only a small uptick in that regard, with the level standing now at 104.1 percent.

The other relevant metric is debt held by the public, which parses out “intragovernmental holdings,” or money the government borrows to operate from its various trust funds like Social Security and Medicare.

That figure, too, began to rise in the early 1980s, from less than $1 trillion to its current $16.2 trillion. In the Obama years alone, it surged from $6.3 trillion to $14.4 trillion.

In debt-to-GDP terms, the public debt rose from 75 percent when Trump took office to 76.4 percent as of the third quarter of 2018. As a contrast, that level rose from 47.5 percent at the start of Obama’s term to 75 percent when he left.

The future, though, is what has many economists concerned.

The most recent projections from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office indicate that debt held by the public will rise to 93 percent of GDP in the next 10 years, or the highest since just after the end of World War II. From there, the level is expected to hit 150 percent by 2049, which is well above what economists consider a sustainable level.

Moreover, should current tax policies stay in place, rather than sunset as they are designed to do, the debt burden will get even worse.

The main culprit of public debt is budget deficits, which have surged under Trump though the CBO now expects the shortfall to be a cumulative $1.2 trillion less than previous projections. The office estimates that annual deficits will start topping $1 trillion in 2022, from an estimated $900 billion in fiscal 2019.

The Trump administration has said economic growth will pay for the added debt and deficit burden, but so far that hasn’t been the case despite the fastest GDP gains of the recovery.

European stocks trade lower amid trade talk uncertainty; Metro Bank down 22%

European stock markets open slightly lower Wednesday morning as uncertainty over the state of Sino-U.S. trade talks dominates sentiment.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 opened 0.3 percent lower. London’s FTSE traded 0.4 percent lower, the German DAX was down 0.5 percent and the French CAC was trading slightly lower as well, according to IG.

All sectors except retail traded in negative territory, with technology at the top of the chart, down nearly 1.5 percent.

The banking sector was also seen to be making losses, after British lender Metro Bank cautioned that its growth softened in the final quarter. Shares in the bank slumped more than 20 percent. Meanwhile, shares in Deutsche Bank is down more than 1 percent after a Bloomberg report stating that the U.S. Federal Reserve is investigating the German lender’s role in a Danske Bank money laundering scheme.

Trading is expected to be cautious in Europe Wednesday amid uncertainty over trade talks between the world’s biggest economies, the U.S. and China, after reports emerged that the White House cancelled a trade planning meeting with Beijing.

It’s understood that the White House rejected a trade planning meeting with Chinese counterparts this week due to outstanding disagreements between the two sides over the enforcement of intellectual property rules. President Trump’s top economic advisor Larry Kudlow dismissed rumors of the cancellation, however.

Investors in Asia traded cautiously Wednesday afternoon driven by uncertainty over the trade talks.

Elsewhere, officials from the Chinese finance ministry said Wednesday that Beijing will boost fiscal expenditure in 2019 to bolster the country’s economy, Reuters reported.

Meanwhile, the World Economic Forum (WEF) continues in Davos this week. On Tuesday, Brazil’s newly-elected populist President Jair Bolsonaro addressed the forum and vowed to transform Latin America’s largest economy into a more investment-friendly country.

Back in Europe, Brexit continues to dominate headlines and parliamentary debate in the U.K., British trade minister Liam Fox will use a two-day trip to Davos to meet his counterparts from around the world to discuss rolling over existing EU trade agreements after Britain leaves the bloc, scheduled for March 29, his office said, according to Reuters.

Fox will be one of many government ministers, business leaders and economists speaking to CNBC at the forum on Wednesday.

On the corporate front, trading statements are due from Ahold Delhaize, ASML, Burberry and JD Wetherspoon on Wednesday.
