18/10/23 Briefing


The S&P 500 futures are down 18 points and are trading 0.4% below fair value. The Nasdaq 100 futures are down 90 points and are trading 0.6% below fair value. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are down 69 points and are trading 0.2% below fair value.

Stocks futures indicate a lower open as participants digest another batch of earnings news that featured better than expected results from Dow component Procter & Gamble (PG) and a Q4 profit warning from United Airlines (UAL).

Geopolitical angst, however, appears to be at the heart of today's weakness after the summit between President Biden and Arab leaders was called off following the Gaza hospital bombing yesterday. WTI crude oil futures are up 2.3% to $88.69/bbl while Brent crude futures are up 2.2% to $91.86/bbl.

The 2-yr note yield is down two basis points to 5.18% and the 10-yr note yield is down four basis points to 4.81%.

China's Q3 GDP grew by 4.9% versus an expected 4.4%. Industrial production and retail sales were both better than expected in September. The U.S. economic calendar features September housing starts and building permits at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Separately, the House will hold another vote for Speaker today at 11:00 ET, according to The New York Times, after Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) failed to obtain the required 217 votes in the first ballot yesterday.

Asia & Europe detail:

Asia: Nikkei UNCH, Hang Seng -0.2%, Shanghai Composite -0.8%

Equity indices in the Asia-Pacific region ended the midweek session on a mostly lower note. The Bank of Japan conducted an unscheduled bond buying operation and there was speculation that the BoJ would raise its inflation forecast for FY23 to 3.0%. An official with China's National Bureau of Statistics said that growth in Q4 would have to be above 4.4% in order for China to hit its annual growth target. The comments were made after the release of better than expected growth figures for Q3. The People's Bank of China reportedly instructed banks to roll over local government loans for a longer term at lower rates. Developer Country Garden appears to have missed its $15 mln coupon payment, which would trigger an offshore default. Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Bullock said that he is a bit more worried about the impact that supply shocks will have on inflation.
