The Group of 20 summit kicks off this weekend in Osaka, Japan, where recent global trade tensions will likely be discussed.

SPY at an all-time high

The SPY continues to trade at an all-time high and we expect the market to remain between $286-$296. We encourage our readers to avoid chasing near $296 and look to buy near $286.  However, we do not see market momentum carrying SPY above $300 level. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:

SPY reach record highs

All three major U.S. indices were in the green in early morning trading following a solid week for U.S. markets which saw the SPY reach record highs. Currently, Dow nears record highs while the Nasdaq has eased off its gains and remains flat.

First meeting between Trump and Xi in months at G20 summit

This week’s G20 summit will feature the first face to face meeting between Trump and Xi in months, giving investors some confidence a trade agreement could be laid out in the days that follow.

The other major geopolitical concern in focus remains the rising tensions in Iran. Last week, two separate incidents brought attention to the area and now it has been reported President Trump is looking for further sanctions to impose. Oil futures and global benchmark continued to alternate between gains and losses.  Globally, Asian markets in the green while European markets finished with mixed results.

Gold futures remain in the green following continued global turmoil while Bitcoin has also seen a decent rally recently, currently trading above $10,000. Goldman Sachs Group is seeing nice gains after their announced plans to disrupt banking with their new startup consumer bank Marcus. This, coupled with Boeing shares rising, helped the Dow close in on its record high. Elsewhere, Eldorado Resorts recently agreed to buy Caesar Entertainment for $8.7 billion. The deal is set to value Caesars at $13 a share and has the stock up 13% today. Eldorado Resorts is currently down 10%. Major earnings to monitor this week include Lennar, FedEx, Micron, General Mills, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Nike, and Constellation Brands.
