ASIA SPOILS THE PARTY, WEAKER RETAIL SALES, OIL RISES ON THE MISSING JOURNALIST

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Asia Spoils The Party

After constructive price action on Friday, hopes were high that this morning the market would gap open by a large amount.  However Asia has spoiled the party in the early trade. Shanghai Composite in China fell to close at the lowest level since 2014.  The weakness carried into Europe and is now coming to the early trade in the United States.

Weak Retail Sales

70% of the U. S. economy is consumer based.  For this reason it is important to pay attention to retail sales.  Retails sales Ex-auto came at -0.1% vs. +0.4% consensus.  We exclude auto because auto sales data is very noisy and hinders analysis.  Please click here to see how we filter the noise.

In a perverse way, weak sales may be positive for the stock market because they may hinder the Fed from aggressively raising rates.  The Fed raising rates is the main cause for the recent down draft in the stock market.
