Gold futures mark first loss in 5 sessions #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Gold futures finished with a loss on Tuesday, putting an end to a streak of gains over the past four trading sessions. U.S. Treasury yields have moved up so the short-term move for gold is likely due to "fear of yields busting through their former ceiling marked this past month," said Adam Koos, president of Libertas Wealth Management Group. "If this happens, I'd expect it to put some downside pressure on gold," he said. However, the dollar is also "breaking down simultaneously," so that may provide some support for the metal. June gold fell .50, or nearly 0.1%, to settle at ,836.10 an ounce after ending Monday at the highest since Feb. 10.

U.S. moving to temporarily waive Jones Act after Colonial Pipeline attack #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
The Biden administration said Tuesday it is moving to temporarily waive a law that requires goods shipped between U.S. ports to be transported on U.S.-owned and operated vessels. The move over the Jones Act comes in response to the ransomware attack that led to a shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline, a critical artery supplying fuels to the East Coast. The U.S. Department of Transportation said in a statement that it has "started the work needed to enable consideration of a temporary and targeted waiver of the Jones Act," and that it is surveying qualified vessels that can carry petroleum products within the Gulf and from the Gulf up the Eastern Seaboard. Colonial Pipeline is working to restore the system that provides 45% of the fuel consumed on the U.S. East Coast by the end of the week.

U.S. stocks finished out a wild Tuesday session lower but investors bought into the drop, helping to pare the worst of the day's steep drop. Still, the Dow Jones Industrial Average booked its worst day since Feb. 26, ending down 472 points, or 1.4%, at 34,269. At its lows, the blue-chip index was down by as many as 668 points before paring those losses. The S&P 500 index closed 0.9% lower to 4,152, while the Nasdaq Composite Index ended down less than 0.1% at 13,389, recovering from an intraday nadir at 13,107.67. Initial selling was primarily focused on technology and tech-related names, with the downturn blamed on renewed fears of a surge in inflation as the economy recovers from the COVID pandemic. Tech shares, however, saw some bids off their lows on Tuesday as investors saw buying opportunities off the day's low.

Apple stock slips, but has bounced sharply off 200-day moving average #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Shares of Apple Inc. fell 1.1% in midday trading Tuesday, but have bounced sharply off a key chart level, which they have stayed above since the COVID-19-pandemic induced lows more than a year ago. The technology behemoth's stock was down as much as 3.2% at its intraday low of 2.77, which was hit moments after the opening bell. The intraday low was right around the 200-day moving average (200-DMA), which currently extends to 2.81, according to FactSet. Many chart watchers believe the 200-DMA represents a dividing line between longer-term uptrends and downtrends. The stock closed even lower than current prices on March 8, at 6.36, but at that time the 200-DMA was at 4.10. The last time the stock closed below the 200-DMA was April 3, 2020. The stock had first closed below the 200-DMA on March 16, 2020, and closed below the line on 11 of 15 days through April 3. The stock has now shed 12.3% since it closed at a record 3.16 on Jan. 26, while the Nasdaq Composite has slipped 1.9% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has run up 10.7% over the same time.

Stock market selloff is showing no signs of panic selling #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Despite the sharp selloff in the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average taking a 474-point, or 1.4% dive and the Nasdaq Composite shedding 0.4%, market internals are showing no signs of panic selling. In fact, some may interpret the readings as suggesting a buy-on-dip mentality is more prevalent. The NYSE Arms Index has fallen to 0.435, according to FactSet data, with levels below 0.500 viewed as suggesting panic-like buying, while the Nasdaq Arms Index declined to 0.653. The Arms Index is a volume-weighted breadth measure that tends to rise above 1.000 when the market is declining, as volume increases in declining stocks more than in advancing stocks, with rises above 2.000 viewed as depicting panic-like selling. With the Arms declining, it means the volume in advancing stocks is greater on a relative basis than volume in declining stocks. For example, the number of declining stocks is outnumbering advancers by a 5.37-to-1 margin on the NYSE and by a 2.83-to-1 margin on the Nasdaq, while volume in declining stocks is outnumber up volume by ratios of only 2.34 to 1 on the NYSE and 1.85 to 1 on the Nasdaq.

Dow skids over 500 points lower, on track for worst day in 2 1/2 months as technology stocks face fresh selling Tuesday #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
The Dow Jones Industrial Average early Tuesday was facing heavy selling pressure, putting the blue-chip index on pace for its worst one-day drop in over 10 weeks, FactSet data show. The Dow was down by about 530 points, or 1.5%, at 34,226 Tuesday, which would represent its steepest slide since Feb. 25 when it fell 1.8%. Rising fears about inflation were being blamed for the renewed selling in the stock market, a day after the Dow hit a milestone at 35,000. Investors are betting that inflation is likely to climb steeply in coming months, driven by pent-up spending as well as supply bottlenecks. The broader market was also being sold as were international equities markets. The S&P 500 index was down 1.6% at 4,123, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was off 1.6% at 13,183, at last check.
