5:09It was a broad risk-off week, with Friday's attempt at an oversold bounce not gaining much traction. The major event was the September FOMC meeting, for which takeaways generally leaned hawkish. The Fed kept rates steady as expected but also issued a new edition of the dot plot which maintained forecasts for another 2023 hike and reduced the median forecast for 2024 easing to 50bp (from 100bp in June).

FactSet Evening Market Recap - Tuesday, 19-Sep
5:24US equities finished lower in Tuesday trading, though stocks ended near session highs. The Dow, S&P, and Nasdaq finished down 0.31%, 0.22%, and 0.23%, respectively. Big tech was mostly stronger though Amazon (AMZN) was a notable decliner. Managed care, machinery, road and rail, semis, restaurants, hotels, casinos, grocers, and HPCs were among the laggards. Steel, insurers, autos, biotech, homebuilders, cruise lines, and telecom fared better. Treasuries were weaker with the curve flattening amid some upward pressure on yields from hotter Canadian inflation. 2Y yield moved above 5.10%. The dollar was slightly higher on the euro and yen crosses. Gold finished little changed while Bitcoin futures were up 1.4%. WTI crude settled down 0.1%. Overall, rate backup and higher oil prices continued to be flagged as headwinds.

Weekly Market Recap - Friday, 15-Sep
4:59US equities were mostly lower in up and down trading this week, with the S&P and Nasdaq finishing back below their 50-day moving averages. The August CPI report garnered the most attention, with the headline coming in largely in line with expectations (though driven higher by recent strength in energy prices) but the core printing was a little hotter than consensus. Nevertheless, analysts had little sense the release would change the Fed's thinking about a likely hold at next week's FOMC meeting.

Autos, semis, utilities, software, MedTech and life sciences, trucking, and telecom were some of the other areas of strength. Airlines, media, banks, homebuilders, energy, auto suppliers, machinery, industrial conglomerates, and tech hardware were among the laggards. Treasuries were firmer with curve steepening. The dollar was better on the euro and yen crosses but little changed vs sterling. Gold finished down 0.1% while bitcoin futures finished up 0.5%. WTI crude ended down 0.4% after Tuesday's near-2% gain hit its highest level in nearly ten months on Tuesday. In macroeconomic news, Headline August CPI saw its largest monthly increase since June 2022, which was as expected, while Core was a bit hotter than consensus. Looking ahead, August PPI comes out tomorrow and preliminary September consumer sentiment (and inflation expectations) are out Friday.

Software, networking and communications, HPCs, beverages, freight and logistics, homebuilders, building materials, and MedTech were among the other laggards. Meanwhile, energy, banks, insurers, credit cards, airlines, rails, and casual diners held up better. Treasuries were mostly firmer with some curve flattening after another backup in yields on Monday. The dollar index finished up 0.2% with gains on the major crosses. Gold ended down 0.6% while bitcoin futures ended up 4.5% following a 3.5% selloff in the prior session. WTI crude settled up 1.8%, ending near 10-month highs after the OPEC report highlighted a growing supply deficit.

Otherwise, there was not much else in today's headlines, as the market still seems to largely be in waiting mode for CPI tomorrow and then PPI, retail sales, ECB and UAW contract expiration on Thursday.
