US futures point to slightly lower open

U.S. stock index futures were slightly lower Friday morning.

At around 03:50 a.m. ET, Dow futures dipped 35 points, indicating a negative open of more than 18 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both marginally lower.

The moves in pre-market trade come after China posted its weakest growth in nearly three decades, as the U.S.-China trade war hit demand at home and abroad.

The world’s second-largest economy grew 6% in the third quarter, less than expected, and its weakest pace of expansion in over 27 years.

The downbeat data appeared to offset a global lift in market sentiment on Thursday, after the U.K. and European Union struck a long-awaited Brexit deal.

British and EU officials reached the agreement after successive days of late-night talks and almost three years of tense discussions.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will now attempt to persuade U.K. lawmakers to back his agreement, ahead of what is expected to be a knife-edge vote on Saturday.

U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher Tuesday morning, as traders look ahead to a new earnings season. ET, Dow futures rose 55 points, indicating a positive open of more than 57 points.

US futures point to a slightly higher open

U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher Tuesday morning, as traders look ahead to a new earnings season.

At around 01:40 a.m. ET, Dow futures rose 55 points, indicating a positive open of more than 57 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both marginally higher.

Overall, market players are monitoring developments on the trade front. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC that tariffs will go up in December if there is no deal in place with China.

“I have every expectation if there’s not a deal those tariffs would go in place, but I expect we’ll have a deal,” Mnuchin said Monday.

Furthermore, the U.S. has also decided to stop trade negotiations with Turkey and raised its steel prices to 50%. The decision followed an earlier U.S. announcement to remove all U.S. troops from the northern border of Syria with Turkey.

Investors are also looking ahead to a new earnings season. BlackRock, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo and J.P. Morgan Chase are set to release their latest performance numbers before the bell. United Airlines and Interactive Brokers will also release earnings after the bell.

On the data front, the Empire State manufacturing figures are due to be released at 08:30 a.m. ET.

US futures point to slightly higher open after US-China reach partial trade deal

U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher Monday morning, after the U.S. agreed to suspend its next tariff increase on Chinese imports.

At around 03:30 a.m. ET, Dow futures rose 8 points, indicating a positive open of more than 14 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both marginally higher.

Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, amid signs of progress in the long-running U.S.-China trade dispute.

On Friday, President Donald Trump announced that the first phase of a deal with China had been agreed, though officials on both sides said much more work needed to be done.

The partial deal — which covers agriculture, currency and some aspects of intellectual property protections — represents the first major step forward to end the trade war in 15 months.

However, the deal does not include many details and Trump has warned it could take up to five weeks to get a pact written.

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.

Samsung says its third-quarter profit likely fell 56% from a year earlier

Samsung Electronics said on Tuesday its operating profit for the three months that ended in September likely dropped by more than half from a year ago. Operating profit for the third quarter is expected at 7.7 trillion Korean won ($6.43 billion), down 56.17% from a year ago when the world’s largest smartphone maker posted 17.57 trillion won in profit. Still, that third-quarter number, if realized, will be slightly higher than an average analyst forecast of 7.1 trillion won by Refinitiv Smartesti

Samsung says its third-quarter profit likely fell 56% from a year earlier

Samsung Electronics said on Tuesday its operating profit for the three months that ended in September likely dropped by more than half from a year ago.

Operating profit for the third quarter is expected at 7.7 trillion Korean won ($6.43 billion), down 56.17% from a year ago when the world’s largest smartphone maker posted 17.57 trillion won in profit. Still, that third-quarter number, if realized, will be slightly higher than an average analyst forecast of 7.1 trillion won by Refinitiv Smartestimate.

The company said its consolidated sales for the three months was 62 trillion won, down about 5.3% from a year ago.

If the guidance is realized when the company reveals full results later this month, it will be the third consecutive quarter where Samsung’s operating profit has more than halved from the same period a year earlier. In the three months that ended June, Samsung said its operating profit fell 55.61% on-year.

Samsung shares rose 0.84% on Tuesday, slightly higher than the broader South Korean benchmark that traded up 0.82%.

Like other chipmakers, the South Korean tech giant has struggled in an environment where the price and demand for memory chips have been low for almost a year due to inventory adjustments and a supply glut. Memory components used in smartphones and data centers make up Samsung’s main profit-making business.

European markets close slightly lower; UK court rules parliament suspension 'unlawful'

European markets closed slightly lower on Tuesday as traders monitored geopolitical developments on both sides of the Atlantic.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 ended the session just below the flatline, with travel and leisure stocks adding 1% to lead gains.

Stocks in the sector rallied on Tuesday on the back of British travel firm Thomas Cook’s collapse a day earlier, with the U.K.’s Tui gaining 6.5% to surge to the top of the index.

Markets were also largely attuned to political developments.

In a landmark case on Tuesday, the U.K.’s highest court ruled that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s suspension of parliament for five weeks until October 14 was unlawful. Sterling traded 0.3% higher at around $1.2466 on the back of the news, while the FTSE 100 shed nearly 0.5%.

The Supreme Court also determined that the prorogation of parliament was null and void and said the speakers of both parliamentary houses must now decide what to do next. House of Commons Speaker John Bercow told reporters shortly afterwards that lawmakers would return to parliament on Wednesday.

Traders were also largely focused on news around the U.S.-China trade spat. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Monday that talks between Washington and Beijing would resume in two weeks.

The U.S. finance official appeared to be contradicted publicly by President Donald Trump earlier in the day. Mnuchin said that last week’s visit from Chinese officials had been cut short on the request of U.S. officials, to which Trump responded “why?”

Elsewhere, Trump said in an address to the U.N. on Tuesday that there was a path to peach with Iran, despite denouncing the country’s “blood lust.”

Stocks on Wall Street were trading mixed on Tuesday as investors became cautiously optimistic about Sino-U.S. trade talks.

In corporate news, Belgian brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev priced the initial public offering of its Asian business at HK$27 a share, the bottom of an indicative range, sources told CNBC. The move means the firm will raise up to $5 billion in the float.

Meanwhile German prosecutors have charged Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess, former CEO Martin Winterkorn and Chairman Hans Dieter Poetsch with stock market manipulation related to the carmaker’s emissions cheating scandal.

On the data front, Germany’s Ifo business climate index offered a slight improvement Tuesday morning, rising to 94.6 points from 94.3 points in August. However, companies’ expectations fell to 90.8 points from 91.3 points in August, hitting its lowest level since June 2009.

U.S. stock were set to open slightly higher Monday morning. ET, Dow futures rose 54 points, indicating a positive open of more than 61 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both also marginally higher. The drop indicates further weakness in the world’s second largest economy and puts further pressure on Chinese lawmakers to announce new economic stimulus. A weaker Chinese economy raises concerns for other countries, including Germany, given their trading links.

Investors are waking up to new data out of China, which showed that exports unexpectedly fell in August with a large contraction for shipments to the United States. The drop indicates further weakness in the world’s second largest economy and puts further pressure on Chinese lawmakers to announce new economic stimulus.
