USA - Stock Market

The economy decelerated noticeably in Q4 2018 on softer consumer spending; declining federal outlays—partly due to the government shutdown—and residential investment; and a feeble external sector. However, still-solid business investment partly cushioned the slowdown. Turning to Q1 2019, available data indicates a further weakening. Feeble payroll gains in February, together with shutdown effects and tepid retail sales data in January, bode poorly for private consumption. Furthermore, a weak housing market may cause residential investment to keep contracting, and Fed Chair Powell recently noted that business investment is also seen slowing in the quarter. Turning to trade talks, negotiators for both China and the U.S. now hope to reach an agreement by the end of April, though progress could be stalled by enforcement issues.
