Stocks Hit as Evergrande Risk Begins to Spread

Recommended Posts

TALKING POINTS:

  • The week is starting with a risk off move as worries around Evergrande continue to spread.
  • The Fed has a rate decision on Wednesday which means that they’re in a blackout period now, preventing the possibility of Fed-speak to perk markets up until we hear the rate decision later this week.

Evergrande is the symptom, not the cause

 

Risk can happen fast, and that’s what’s pushing prices to start this week as from Evergrande has continued to spread. I had looked into the matter last week, noting that equity markets had seemingly ignored this risk, for the most part up to that point. While China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan were all on holiday today, developments have continued to evolve around the ongoing situation with the insolvent property developer, Evergrande.

The domino effect started in Hong Kong markets on the weekly open with the Hang Seng taking a hit. That pain then began to spread globally, with stocks in Europe selling off and US issues were unable to escape the pain.

At this point, US equity futures are sitting on lows ahead of the 9:30 AM ET open and the Federal Reserve waits in the wings for what’s expected to be a highly-watched rate decision on Wednesday. The bank may have yet another reason to delay any possible plans to announce tapering, at this point, should the Evergrande situation continue to evolve.

S&P 500

The S&P 500 has traded down to a fresh monthly low, testing support around the August 19th swing low. I had noted last week that the S&P 500 could technically put in a 38.2% retracement, which would entail a total hit of -19.84%, with the bullish trend still remaining in workable order. If we round that 19.84% up to 20, well then technically the index would be in a bear market and still in a bullish trend.

At this point, we’re less than 5% off of the highs and the Fed is on the docket for Wednesday. It’s not all doom and gloom right now.

NASDAQ 100: THE BIG LEVEL IS 15K

The Nasdaq is similarly pulling back and like the S&P 500 above, we remain less than 5% off of all-time-highs, as of this writing.

The big level to follow here is the 15k psychological level, which functioned as resistance on the way up but, to date, hasn’t shown much for higher-low support yet. A hold of support there can keep the door open for buy-the-dip scenarios ahead of the Fed.

More exposure then many think... This will be a roller coaster on its way down unless a rescue plan is hatched last minute.  Doesn't look like that's gong to happen.  'Hold on to your hats' 

Hi @neonred

"(Evergrande's) stock will continue to fall, because there's not yet a solution that appears to be helping the company to ease its liquidity stress, and there are still so many uncertainties about what the company will do in case of a restructuring," Kington Lin, managing director of Asset Management Department at Canfield Securities Limited, said.

Chinese property giant Evergrande is on the brink of collapse, and analysts warn the potential fallout could have far-reaching implications that spill outside China’s borders.

“Evergrande’s collapse would be the biggest test that China’s financial system has faced in years,” says Mark Williams, chief Asia economist at Capital Economics.

Hi, 

Trouble is it's a fall for all...See what happens when Nikkei cash session opens Dow heading for 800 pts lower

Some would say we  were due a correction but i'd say this is mostly due to Evergrande

People are comparing this to Lehman,  'I hope not'  We had a global crisis that loomed when Lehman went down

Hi @neonred

China Evergrande Group’s debt crisis is unlikely to become China’s “Lehman moment,” according to strategists at Citigroup Inc., Barclays Plc and UBS Group AG.

Barclays argues the market environment isn’t similar to what happened during the collapse of Lehman Brothers, UBS says the default levels are pretty low versus the size of China’s economy and Citi expects the policy makers to step in.

 

Lets hope they don't default and collapse like Lehman Brothers.

Hi,

Any idea why Vivendi SA stock has plumeted to 2002 lows.  Would be interested to know whats happened there.  Was featured on Jerome Naylors morning call the other day? Can Ie mail him?  

Hi @neonred,

Universal Music Group was spun out of Vivendi and shares in UMG took value with them. Universal shares rose substantially. Anyone with a prior interest in Vivendi would own the new stock in UMG. That is of course if they owned the stock.
 
You can contact helpdesk.uk@ig.com and your message will be passed on to him.

Evergrande is set to forge ahead into a debt restructuring that would include all of its offshore public bonds and private debt, according to analysts.

The troubled real estate developer, swamped by $300 billion of liabilities, also said Tuesday that it’s setting up a risk management committee, which will play a role in mitigating and eliminating future risks for the firm. The world’s most indebted property developer has been struggling to raise funds to pay suppliers and investors.

BEIJING — Indebted property developer China Evergrande defaulted this week with hardly a ripple in markets as most institutions remained silent.

Late Thursday, Fitch Ratings said Evergrande had not confirmed payment of its latest debt obligation, triggering a default. The developer’s shares traded 1% lower Friday. The Shanghai composite dropped 0.2%.

    • Fears of a wider regional conflict in the Middle East weighed on market sentiment overnight, though a higher open is expected for the Dax. This flight to safety was triggered by news of an Iranian strike on Israel with hundreds of drones and missiles, raising concerns over potential Israeli retaliation. Safe-haven assets like gold and the US dollar strengthened, though the Japanese yen weakened to a 30-year low against the dollar, highlighting that interest rates remain the primary market focus despite geopolitical risks. Oil prices dipped in Asian trading as the risk of Iranian retaliation was already priced in last week. While the US has stated it will not take part in a counter-offensive against Iran, the volatility index remains near five-month highs, reflecting heightened market nervousness. Any further oil price increases could add to inflationary pressures, complicating central banks' efforts to control rising consumer prices. This week, markets will closely watch US economic data releases, including retail sales and comments from Federal Reserve officials, for clues on the monetary policy outlook amid persistent inflation concerns. The US earnings season is also underway, with mixed results from major banks getting the season off to a lacklustre start.
