Market Update for May 13, 2019

In today's update:

1) China retaliated by raising tariffs on U.S. goods and U.S. Equities plunged posting their worst day in 9 months. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 617.38 or 2.38%, the S&P 500 fell 69.53 or 2.41% while the Nasdaq 100 closed lower by 269.92 or 3.41% and the Russell 2000 finished lower my 49.99 or 3.18%.

2) Crude Oil Futures also dropped on concerns over U.S. - China trade tensions closing lower by $0.79 or 1.28% while Gold Futures had their best day in 3 months closing higher by $13.00 or 1.01%. The Bond market moved sharply higher and the yield on the 10-year Treasury Note fell to 2.409%.

3) The failed Rally attempt in afternoon trading made today's drop feel very real. There was an increase in volume and more money moved out of Equities and into Bonds and Gold. If the four main U.S. Equity indexes don't hold current support levels, this downturn will become much worse.
