US futures point to slightly higher open

U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher Thursday morning.

At around 2:30 a.m. ET, Dow futures rose 20 points, indicating a positive open of more than 23 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both slightly higher.

The Federal Reserve held interest rates steady in a target range of 1.5%-1.75% on Wednesday, as many had expected, and indicated it would likely not make any policy changes through at least 2020.

The U.S. central bank’s decision to keep borrowing costs unchanged was unanimous, following several dissents in recent meetings.

Market participants also closely monitored global trade developments, with three days to go before the U.S. is due to impose even more tariffs on Chinese goods.

President Donald Trump is expected to hold talks with top trade advisors at the White House on Thursday, Reuters reported on Wednesday, citing three unnamed sources familiar with the matter. It is expected that the high-stakes meeting will see senior U.S. officials put forward divergent views on whether to go ahead with Sunday’s planned charges on approximately $156 billion in Chinese goods.

The world’s two largest economies have imposed tariffs on billions of dollars’ worth of one another’s goods since the start of 2018, battering financial markets and souring business and consumer sentiment.

U.S. stock index futures were mixed Wednesday morning, as investors wait to hear from the Federal Reserve.

At around 1:30 a.m. ET, Dow futures dropped 15 points, but indicated a positive open of more than 14 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both pointing to a slightly higher open.

Market players seem cautious amid uncertainty on the U.S.-China trade front. There is no clear indication that both countries will reach an agreement over trade that could stop or reduce the current level of tariffs. The U.S. is due to impose fresh duties on Chinese goods by Sunday.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the U.S. plans to delay these additional tariffs on Beijing as both sides try to work out an agreement. However, also on Tuesday, White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow said the December 15 deadline is still “on the table.”

Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve will issue a statement on its latest monetary policy decisions at 2:00 p.m. ET. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell will then address the press at 2:30 p.m. ET. In its October meeting, the Fed decided to cut the Fed Funds Rate to a range of 1.5% to 1.75%.

U.S. stock index futures were slightly lower on Monday.

At around 04:30 a.m. ET, Dow futures dipped 38 points, indicating a negative open of more than 44 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both slightly lower.

Wall Street rose to near-record highs late last week, following a U.S. jobs report that easily topped analyst expectations. The world’s largest economy added 266,000 jobs in November, according to data released by the Labor Department.

Market participants closely monitored the prospect of a limited trade agreement between the U.S. and China, with less than a week to go before Washington is set to impose even more tariffs on Chinese goods.

Larry Kudlow, director of the White House National Economic Council, told CNBC on Friday that both sides were “close” to a deal, but suggested Trump was prepared to “walk away” if certain conditions were not met.

Kudlow also confirmed that a Dec. 15 deadline remained in place to impose tariffs on another $156 billion on Chinese goods.

The U.S. and China have imposed tariffs on billions of dollars’ worth of one another’s goods since the start of 2018, battering financial markets and souring business and consumer sentiment.

U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher on Thursday.

At around 02:15 a.m., Dow futures rose 27 points, indicating a positive open of more than 20 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both slightly higher.

Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, following a media report suggesting the world’s two largest economies were on the cusp of signing a so-called “phase one” trade deal.

A Bloomberg report, which cited people familiar with U.S.-China trade talks, said both countries were inching closer to securing an agreement on the amount of tariffs that would be rolled back in a limited trade deal. President Donald Trump also said Wednesday that he believed trade talks with Beijing were going “very well.”

Market participants are closely monitoring the prospect of a limited trade agreement with 10 days to go before Washington is poised to impose even more tariffs on Chinese goods. Dec. 15 is the date when tariffs on another $156 billion in Chinese goods would go into effect.

The U.S. and China have imposed tariffs on billions of dollars’ worth of one another’s goods since the start of 2018, battering financial markets and souring business and consumer sentiment.

In corporate news, Toronto-Dominion Bank, Dollar General and Tiffany are among some of the companies scheduled to report earnings before the opening bell.

CrowdStrike, DocuSign and Okta are all set to report their latest quarterly figures after market close.

On the data front, the latest weekly jobless claims and international trade figures for October will be released at 8:30 a.m. ET. Factory orders for October will follow slightly later in the session.

Market players are monitoring high-level meetings between President Donald Trump and other NATO leaders, as the institution celebrates 70 years of existence. Trump told reporters in London that might be better to conclude a trade deal with China after the 2020 presidential election. The U.S. is due to impose fresh duties on Chinese goods by December 15.

Meanwhile, France and the wider European Union have promised to retaliate against potential U.S. tariffs on French goods. The U.S. Trade Representative announced Monday a list of French goods that could see tariffs of up to 100%. The decision came after France introduced a digital services tax, which the U.S. argues treats U.S. tech companies unfairly. Other European countries, including the U.K. have plans to impose a digital tax.

At the same time, the U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the Trump administration has not ruled out imposing tariffs on imported European autos, despite not announcing a decision in November on whether to put additional levies on cars in the region.

On the data front, there will be ADP payrolls out at 8:15 a.m. ET; followed by services PMIs at 9:45 a.m. ET and ISM nonmanufacturing data at 10 a.m. ET.

In corporate news, Campbell Soup, Slack and Royal Bank of Canada are due to report Wednesday.

U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher on Tuesday.

At around 03:40 a.m., Dow futures rose 24 points, indicating a positive open of more than 34 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both marginally higher.

Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, following President Donald Trump’s decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on imports from Brazil and Argentina.

The U.S. president suggested the move was necessary because Brazil and Argentina had been “presiding over a massive devaluation of their currencies.”

However, in recent months, both countries have been seeking to strengthen their respective currencies against the dollar.

The South American trade tariffs have rekindled broader concerns about a protracted dispute between the U.S. and China, with investors monitoring the prospect of a limited agreement.

Ahead of his trip to London on Monday, Trump said he was “very happy” the world’s two largest economies were holding talks to try to secure a so-called “phase one” agreement. The U.S. president has joined other world leaders in the U.K.’s capital city to mark the 70th anniversary of NATO.

Washington and Beijing have imposed tariffs on billions of dollars’ worth of one another’s goods since the start of 2018, battering financial markets and souring business and consumer sentiment.

COP25 climate summit starts as UN chief says the planet faces a 'point of no-return'

The COP25 climate summit got underway Monday, with the UN secretary general warning that “the point of no-return is no longer over the horizon.”

The summit, which will end on December 13, is taking place in Madrid, Spain. It was originally due to be held in Santiago, Chile, but was moved to Europe after civil unrest in the South American country.

In remarks delivered Sunday, Antonio Guterres emphasized that his message was “one of hope, not of despair” but sought to highlight the urgency of the problems faced by the planet.

“We simply have to stop digging and drilling and take advantage of the vast possibilities offered by renewable energy and nature-based solutions,” he said.

“In the crucial 12 months ahead, it is essential that we secure more ambitious national commitments — particularly from the main emitters — to immediately start reducing greenhouse gas emissions at a pace consistent to reaching carbon neutrality by 2050,” he went on to state.

While Guterres stressed the importance of unity and collaboration, ensuring that all countries are on the same page is a huge challenge.

China, for instance, is constructing more coal-fired power plants and approving new mines, according to Reuters. The country has built 42.9 gigawatts of new coal-fired power capacity since the beginning of 2018, Reuters said, compared with 35 GW in 2017.

As COP25 begins, the shadow of COP21, which took place in Paris in 2015, looms large.

As well as a commitment to make sure global warming stayed “well below” 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, world leaders at Paris also agreed to “pursue efforts” to limit the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The Paris Agreement suffered a setback on November 4 when the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, officially announced in a statement that the country had started the process to withdraw.

“Per the terms of the Agreement, the United States submitted formal notification of its withdrawal to the United Nations,” he said. “The withdrawal will take effect one year from delivery of the notification.”
