    Markets Should Embrace Volatility While It Lasts

    Buy stocks when there’s news that the U.S. and China are making headway in resolving the escalating trade war. To recap, stocks were weighed down early Monday after news broke over the weekend that China summoned U.S. Ambassador Terry Branstad to explain the U.S. request to extradite Huawei Technologies Co. Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou from Canada, where she is being held. Stocks then opened big on Tuesday on the news that U.S. and China officials held a call to discuss trade, followed by a Bloomberg News report that China is mulling a proposal to reduce tariffs on cars made in the U.S. to 15 percent from the current 40 percent — bringing the U.S. back in line with what other countries pay.

    The reasons to be bearish on the stock market now are swamping the bull case

    Market bulls continue to see strong U.S. GDP growth, a tight labor market and surging corporate profits. A once-pristine fundamental backdrop suddenly looks tarnished, as worries accelerate that economic growth may have peaked, political headwinds are forming, and rising interest rates will stand in the way of future fiscal stimulus from the Trump administration. All it took was a negative headline for Apple about iPhone demand and news about a lingering regulatory issue for Goldman Sachs to send Wall Street into another tailspin.

    With risky bets back in play, stock selloff revives 'Volmageddon' memories

    Months after he lost millions when an esoteric corner of financial markets cratered in February, former Target Corp store manager Seth Golden is betting against volatility again. Golden, who says wagers on market calm earned him millions in the past six years, is among the investors who have kept trading complex financial products linked to the Cboe Volatility Index (.VIX) - Wall Street's "fear gauge" - in the months since some of those products blew up. It was the Johnny-come-latelies and people who shouldn't have been trading volatility in the first place," Golden said.

    The Markets Might Agree With Trump on the Fed

    “I like low interest rates,” Trump said. At least that’s how financial markets seem to be behaving, with the S&P 500 Index tumbling to its lowest since July and benchmark 10-year Treasury note yields reaching their highest since 2011. Equities and bonds have been under pressure ever since the Fed raised rates on Sept. 26 for the third time this year and the seventh time since Trump was elected.
