Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

The market and national drama seems non-stop.

Gains for the year have all but vanished.  Correction territory and the “bear” words are being tossed about by some.  The reasons cited by investors and market watchers are many, as the bullets in the headlines above from CNN and Fox Business suggest.

The latest to catch the finger (pointing) is the word from Bloomberg that a new round of trade tariffs against China could come in early December, following a planned meeting between President Donald J. Trump and China’s President Xi.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined specifics when asked about the import meeting. “I’m not going to get ahead of the conversation,” she said in Monday’s press briefing. “You have two of the most powerful leaders in the world. I think that’s consequential no matter how you look at it and we’ll see what happens when they sit down.”

We are in the middle of a pretty nasty dispute. We’re in a trade dispute — I want to use that word because it’s a nice, soft word — but we’re going to win,” President Trump said on Saturday at an event in Indiana. “You know why? ‘Cause we always win.”
