TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
CMC Markets analyst David Madden said: “The S&P 500 posted a small gain last night as the market rebounded a little form the massive losses incurred on Wednesday, while the NASDAQ 100 finished fractionally in the red. US retail sales jumped by 0.7% in July and that assisted the greenback – which took a battering at the beginning of the month. The
“inversion of the yield curve spooked traders, but when you look at the economic indicators, the US economy is in rude health. The jobs market is strong, earnings are above CPI and workers are spending money, so we might see a row back in the calls for a rate cut from the Fed next month.
