    ECB's Draghi to attend Fed's Jackson Hole conference for first time in 3 years: WSJ

    European Central Bank President Mario Draghi is scheduled to address the Federal Reserve's Jackson Hole conference in August, marking his first speech at the high-profile gathering in three years, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing a person familiar with the matter.

    U.S. stock market jumps as Wall Street rallies from worst daily fall in a month

    U.S. stock-market indexes on Wednesday traded higher, with equities attempting to rebounding from a technology-led downdraft in the previous session. A Senate delay of a closely watched vote on a bill to overhaul of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, until after July 4, has raised some questions about President Donald Trump's ability to advance his pro-business and market-boosting agenda, headlined by tax cuts, deregulation and a boost to spending on infrastructure. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 0.7% at 21,468, the S&P 500 index rose 0.9% at 2,441, while the Nasdaq Composite Index jumped 1.2% at 6,221, as the tech-laden benchmark tried to avoid three straight down days, and its first monthly drop since October. The small-capitalization Russell 2000 , also caught a bid in the day's upswing, trading in record territory, up 1.6% at 1,425. In the prior session, tech shares pitched sharply lower, with the biotech-oriented iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF suffering its largest daily drop since March 21, and the health-care focused Health Care Select Sector SPDR ETF notching its steepest one-day drop since May 17, according to FactSet data. Technology stocks have been the centerpiece of what has been a mulitmonth rally in U.S. stocks. Also Tuesday, global investors digested comments from European Central Bank boss, Mario Draghi, whose remarks were interpreted as less hawkish than previously, pushing the euro to a 10-month high against the dollar and jolting yields on government paper up, including the 10-year Treasury note .

    Wall Street's 'fear index' is on pace for its biggest daily pop in a month

    A measure of implied volatility on Wall Street on Thursday was on track to post its largest one-day rise since mid-May as U.S. equities saw firm losses, pressured by a resumption of selling in the highflying technology sector. The CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX, known colloquially as Wall Street's fear gauge was up 10.5% at 11.76 at last check, putting it on track to rise by the most since May 17, when it popped more than 46%. The metric, which tracks options betting on moves in the S&P 500 index a month into the future, has been preternaturally quiescent over the past several months, but has had bouts of relative choppiness as investors fret about market valuations and absorb geopolitical developments, including the U.K.'s efforts to renegotiate longstanding trade agreements with the European Union. Thursday's action comes as the Nasdaq Composite Index , which is on pace to fall four of the past five trading sessions, was suffering a sharp early decline, down 1.1% and on track to post its first losing month since October. Valuations around popular tech giants, including Facebook Inc. , Amazon.com Inc. , Google Inc.-parent Alphabet , Apple Inc. , and Netflix Inc. have raised concerns that those companies, known as FAANG stocks, have risen too far, too fast and are due for a sharp pullback. That sentiment has pressured the rest of the market, which has been aided in its recent run to all-time highs by the tech rally. On Wednesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished at a record despite a broad-market decline. Those moves came after the Federal Reserve lifted key interest rates a quarter-point and detailed its plans to normalize monetary policy and reduce its $4.5 trillion balance sheet, accumulated during the 2008-'09 financial crisis. An accommodative central bank has been seen by some as underpinning what has been a eight-year bull market in equities. The jump in the VIX, however, hasn't coincided with a clear flight to quality--typically associated with a rise in the fear index. Government bonds, for example, viewed as haven assets, were seeing some selling, with the 10-year Treasury note yield up 4.2 basis points at 2.17%, approaching its levels from the beginning of the week and well off its lows set Thursday. Bond prices and yields move inversely. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

    Men's Wearhouse parent Tailored Brands shares lower after Q1 revenue miss

    Tailored Brands Inc. shares turned lower late Wednesday after the company, the parent of men's apparel retailer Jos. A. Banks, Men's Wearhouse, and others, reported fiscal first-quarter per-share earnings well above Wall Street expectations but missed revenue forecasts. Tailored Brands said it earned $1.8 million, or 4 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with $1.6 million, or 3 cents a share, for the same quarter last year. Adjusted for one-time items, the company earned $13.1 million, or 27 cents a share, compared with $13.9 million, or 29 cents a share, a year ago. Sales reached $782.9 million, down 5% from a year ago. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected the company to report adjusted earnings of 19 cents a share on sales of $793 million. The agreement with Macy's Inc. to wind down a tuxedo rental partnership "eliminates the risk of extended future operating losses and enables us to focus on our rental business at Men's Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank and Moores," the company said in a statement. The company reaffirmed the EPS outlook for fiscal 2017 it had provided last month, forecasting earnings between $1.37 and $1.67 a share for the year. As previously announced, all 170 tuxedo shops at Macy's will be closed in the second quarter, the company said. The shares ended the regular session up 5.8%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

    Bank stocks clobbered by JP Morgan execs disclosure of 15% decline in trading

    Bank stocks fell across the board Wednesday, after J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.'s Chief Financial Officer said trading is down about 15% in the second quarter. Marianne Lake told investors at an industry conference that the decline is a "normal seasonal" one that is typical moving from the first to the second quarters, The Wall Street Journal reported. She said fixed income was down, while equities were up slightly. "We're doing decently in a reasonably challenging environment," Ms. Lake said Wednesday. "Performance is quite good but there's not a lot to trade around right now....there haven't been that many exciting events and we need a few more of them," she said. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. led the decline, trading down 3.1%. Bank of America Corp. fell 2.7%, Citigroup Inc. was down 2.5%, Morgan Stanley fell 2.3% and J.P. Morgan was down 2.2%. The Financial Select Sector SPDR exchange-traded fund fell 1.2%, and is down 0.3% in 2017, while the S&P 500 has gained about 8%.

    Business demand for bank loans was weaker in the first quarter, Fed survey finds

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Demand for bank loans from commercial and industrial firms was weaker in the first quarter, the Federal Reserve said Monday in its senior loan officer survey. That came in a quarter when standards for loans were basically unchanged. The officers said that they continued to tighten standards for commercial real estate, a process that economists said started in late 2015. Many officers cited regulatory reasons for tightening commercial real estate standards. There was also weaker demand for auto loans and credit cards. The survey found a moderate tightening of standards for auto loans for the second straight quarter. But bank officers reported that they eased standards for credit-card loans.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
