Dow Futures Wobbles Under Economic Data Scrutiny on Memorial Day

By CCN: The Dow and U.S. stock market could see significant action this week as a fresh wave of economic data make their way through the financial markets. Critically, these data releases will help investors determine the latest impact of the U.S.-China trade war on the domestic economy.

The Dow rose on Friday, but failed to stem its fifth consecutive weekly loss amid heightened tensions over U.S.-China trade relations.

Last week, investors cut ties to riskier assets and piled into government bonds after the Trump administration blacklisted Huawei, China’s largest telecommunications company, and roughly 70 of its affiliates. Markets would later recover slightly after the Commerce Department issued a 90-day license that allows U.S. companies to continue working with Huawei temporarily.

Nevertheless, a prolonged U.S.-China trade war is beginning to impact the economy – at least, that’s what the latest economic numbers show. U.S. manufacturing activity, retail sales and overall economic growth have dwindled at the start of the second quarter, signaling a sharp deceleration from the strong start to 2019.

A steady stream of market-moving reports will be released this week, beginning on Tuesday with the Dallas Fed manufacturing business index. On Thursday, the Commerce Department will issue revised Q1 GDP data, which includes updated inflation figures. On Friday, the report on personal income and outlays will be released. The April data will be accompanied by the latest reading on core personal consumption expenditures, the Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of inflation.
