U.S.-China Map

What’s Next for the U.S. and China?

What’s in Today’s Report:

  • What’s Next for the U.S.-China Trade Talks?
  • Dr. Copper is Not Buying the Stock Rally
  • Global PMI Analysis

U.S. stock futures are slightly lower this morning as investors continue to digest the G20 “trade truce” against further deteriorating global economic data so far this week while news flows overnight were very slow.

Economic data overnight was largely Goldilocks with German Retail Sales coming in at -0.6% vs. (E) 0.7% (but revisions were positive) while Eurozone PPI was -0.1% vs. (E) 0.0%. Additionally, the RBA cut rates, as expected.

Looking into today’s session the only economic data coming out today is Motor Vehicle Sales (E: 17.0M) while there is just one Fed official scheduled to speak: Mester (11:00 a.m. ET).

That will likely make for a quiet session as traders look ahead to U.S. jobs data due out later in the week while trading schedules are non-typical thanks to the 4th of July holiday on Thursday.
