TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

There were many reasons cited for the global stock markets crash. Partial shut down of US government over Trump’s border wall could be a reason for late downside acceleration. But it’s after all a one-off event that’s repeated more than once. US-China trade war is on track to have a deal in late February or early March. Fed is often cited as a bearish factor. There were even rumors that Trump has discussed firing Fed Chair Jerome “Jay” Powell after last week’s hike. But as we argued below, investors have significantly pare back expectations on 2019 Fed hikes already. They’re now even unsure Fed will raise interest rates again in the first half. So, reducing bet on Fed hikes yet selling stocks sounds rather non-trivial.
