Dow futures under pressure again as Boeing shares drop on FAA probe

U.S. stock index futures were mixed on Monday morning, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average under renewed pressure by a drop in shares of Boeing.

Dow futures were down 51 points, indicating a slip of 30.87 points at the open. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures indicated a higher open, however.

Boeing shares dropped 3 percent in the premarket after the U.S. Department of Transportation launched an investigation into whether there were lapses in the Federal Aviation Administration’s approval of Boeing planes involved in two recent fatal crashes, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

Investors are also awaiting the start of a two-day Federal Reserve policy meeting this week.

The U.S. central bank will begin its meeting on interest rates on Tuesday, which ends with a news conference on Wednesday. The Federal Reserve is expected to lower their interest rate forecasts — or “dot plots” — to show little or no further tightening in 2019.

There’s also a strong focus on a potential trade deal between the United States and China. The Chinese Vice Premier, Liu He, spoke via telephone with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer recently after a report in the South China Morning Post suggested that the two sides have made further progress.

Optimism regarding a potential U.S.-China trade deal boosted the stock market on Friday.

There is also strong attention on oil markets and an OPEC meeting. Russia’s energy minister Alexander Novak told CNBC over the weekend that his country will be fully compliant with OPEC-led supply cuts in the coming weeks.

Market participants are likely to monitor a fresh round of U.S. housing data. The National Association of Home Builders will release its monthly housing market survey at 10 a.m. ET.

'Let's get on with it': Frustration grows in EU circles as Brexit talks stall

There is growing frustration in Brussels as Brexit negotiations rumble on with only a few days left before an official departure date for the U.K.

“Let’s get on with it. We have bigger fish to fry,” an EU official with knowledge of the negotiations but who preferred to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the situation, told CNBC Sunday regarding the mood in Brussels and ahead Tuesday’s vote in London.

Talks between the U.K. and the EU stalled over the weekend, after both sides failed to come to an agreement over the “Irish backstop” — an insurance policy which aims to prevent a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

This issue is not new in the Brexit process, with certain U.K. lawmakers heavily criticizing this insurance policy that the U.K. government formulated with the EU last year. It was seen as a key reason why the U.K. Parliament overwhelmingly rejected May’s deal in January.

However, the deadlock is becoming more pressing by the minute ahead of a key vote in the U.K. Parliament Tuesday — and roughly two weeks away from the U.K.’s scheduled departure date from the EU. If the U.K. does not approve an exit deal there’s a significant risk that it will leave without any arrangements, bringing uncertainty to businesses and citizens on both sides of the English Channel.

U.K. lawmakers are due to vote again on the Withdrawal Agreement Tuesday evening, after they rejected it by a 230 vote-margin back in January. Since then, the U.K. has tried to get further concessions from the EU side, but the other 27 countries have refused to change its stance.

Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, tried to appease the concerns among U.K. lawmakers regarding the Irish backstop on Friday. Barnier said the U.K. would not be forced into a customs union against its will and reiterated that he is ready to strengthen two important commitments that are already in the Withdrawal Agreement.

These commitments state that the EU will act in good faith and it will use its best endeavors to prevent having to trigger the Irish backstop. European officials believe that these commitments prove that the 27 countries do not want to reach a state whereby they have to implement this insurance policy. Given that these promises are written in the Withdrawal Agreement they are legally binding.

ECB in panic mode? Experts warn it’ll take more than a central bank to help Europe recover

New monetary stimulus from the European Central Bank (ECB) will do “little” to boost the region’s sluggish economy and tackle its biggest risks, analysts told CNBC. ECB President Mario Draghi said that interest rates would remain at record lows at least until December. Growth forecasts for the euro zone were slashed for this year and new loans to euro zone banks were announced. “(The announcements) are also a bit of a gamble as they will do very little to tackle the biggest risks for the euro zo

ECB in panic mode? Experts warn it'll take more than a central bank to help Europe recover

New monetary stimulus from the European Central Bank (ECB) will do “little” to boost the region’s sluggish economy and tackle its biggest risks, analysts told CNBC.

“(The ECB’s) announcements have some flavor of panic as the ECB’s base case scenario still foresees a gradual recovery and the 2020 and 2021 forecasts were hardly revised downwards,” Carsten Brzeski, chief economist at ING Germany, said in a note Thursday.

The Frankfurt-based institution surprised markets with a renewed dovish tone. ECB President Mario Draghi said that interest rates would remain at record lows at least until December. Growth forecasts for the euro zone were slashed for this year and new loans to euro zone banks were announced.

“The measures as such are not such a big surprise but the timing of the announcement is,” Brzeski added. “(The announcements) are also a bit of a gamble as they will do very little to tackle the biggest risks for the euro zone economy, which according to the ECB stem from external sources.”

Draghi even acknowledged this fact in a press conference following the ECB’s formal rate decision on Thursday. “We are aware that our decisions (new stimulus) certainly increase the resilience of the euro zone economy, but actually can they address these factors that are weighing on the euro zone economy in the rest of the world? They cannot,” Draghi told reporters, adding that protectionism and geopolitics were among those outside risks.

Dow futures point to a lower open as investors monitor US-China trade developments

U.S. stock index futures were lower Wednesday morning as market players remain focused on U.S.-China trade developments.

At around 02:11 a.m. ET, Dow futures fell 48 points, indicating a negative open of more than 22 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq also pointed to a lower open.

Wall Street ended Tuesday’s session lower, as investors continued to search for clarity in trade negotiations between the U.S. and China.

This remains the biggest topic that stock investors are watching for. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday he thought Washington and Beijing were “on the cusp” of reaching a deal. Despite positive comments from different members of the U.S. administration, market players are yet to find out how far-reaching any deal could be.

On the economic front, there will be ADP employment numbers at 8.15 a.m. ET and international trade figures out at 8.30 a.m. ET.

On the corporate calendar, Luxottica Group, Brown-Forman, Dollar Tree and Abercrombie & Fitch are set to report before the bell.

Furthermore, New York Fed President John Williams and Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester are set to speak later on Wednesday.

Italy's finance chief says Rome's biggest problem is investor confidence

Investor confidence is the biggest problem that Italy is facing, the country’s finance minister told Class-CNBC Monday.

The euro zone’s third largest economy has struggled to convince investors that it is on a sustainable fiscal path. Since the anti-establishment government came into power last June, concerns have risen about Italy’s ability to repay its debts.

This is because the coalition government has increased public spending and Rome is already dealing with the second highest debt pile in the euro area – at about 130 percent of debt- to-GDP.

These concerns have been mirrored into rising yields on Italian government debt – the higher the yield, the riskier the investment is perceived. For instance, the yield on the 10-year Italian paper peaked last May from below 2 percent to about 3 percent in a matter of days, on the back of the possibility that two anti-establishment parties were about to take power. The same yield is now trading at about 2.7 percent – still one of the highest in the euro area.

“I think investor confidence is Italy’s biggest problem. But confidence can be restored,” Giovanni Tria, Italy’s finance minister told CNBC.

“I see a lot of international appreciation for Italy’s industrial system and for our economy. We need to boost our own domestic morale even in the shot-term, but I think that our basis is very strong,” Tria, who is a technocrat and not a member of any of the coalition parties, said.

Data from the Ifo Institute showed last month that investor sentiment in the 19 member region dropped to its lowest level in more than four years. Out of eight euro zone countries analyzed, Italy registered the weakest level of economic climate.

The numbers point to a tough ride ahead for Italy, especially after Rome fell into recession in the last quarter of 2018.

Stocks rise as US and China reportedly get closer to trade deal

U.S. stock index futures rose on Monday on a report that U.S. and China are getting close to a trade deal.

At around 7 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were up 65 points, indicating a gain of more than 70 points at the open. Futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 were also higher.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that China had proposed to bring down duties on certain American goods in an attempt to strike a deal with the Trump administration. The same report suggested both countries are at the final stage of their negotiations, which could see the country’s leaders meeting at a special summit to sign a trade deal soon.

“Markets expect a deal by the end of March, but the key here will be whether the deal results in the removal of all tariffs,” said Tom Essaye, founder of The Sevens Report. “The reports this morning imply that might happen, but it will have to become reality for US-China trade to provide a sustainable positive catalyst for stocks.”

The Trump administration touted last week significant progress being made in U.S. negotiations with China. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC on Thursday the two sides were getting closer to a deal. White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow also told CNBC “the progress [between the two countries] has been terrific.”

However, The New York Times said in another report that the trade deal being discussed would do little to address key structural issues. These include efforts by the Chinese to curb cybertheft and subsidies the Trump administration argues make it harder for U.S. companies to do business in China.

Shares of global trade bellwethers Caterpillar, Boeing and Deere were all up in the premarket.

The back-and-forth on trade between the two countries has sent ripples through financial markets since last year, with investors fretting how tighter trade conditions could impact corporate profits.

On the economic front, there will be construction spending figures out at 10 a.m. ET.

Italy is side-lining itself from the EU. And its populist deputy leader stands to benefit

Italy’s relationship with the EU has deteriorated since an anti-establishment government took the reins in Rome last year. And for Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, that breakdown has coincided with a surge in popularity.

Tensions between Rome and Brussels have risen on different occasions since the new coalition took power last June. There has been a dispute over how much the Italian government wants to spend; an intense exchange of words over the collapse of a bridge in the city of Genoa during the summer; and an ongoing battle over immigration. In addition, some Italian politicians have recently joined French protesters, creating a rift with its neighboring country.

“It is clear that the relationship between Italy and Brussels is much more fractious (now) than in the past,” Wolfango Piccoli, a political and policy risk advisor at research firm Teneo told CNBC via telephone.

He described the government’s attitude toward Europe as a “vote-winning” strategy.
