Stocks continued their march upwards to cap their fourth straight week of gains, despite oil lagging. For the second time this week the S&P 500 closed at all-time highs, any minor dips clearly being viewed as a buying opportunity by traders. Bullish sentiment was helped by a positive preliminary manufacturing PMI reading for July, which came in above even the most optimistic estimates and showed the steepest rate of growth since November 2015. The bullish sentiment in equities comes despite the downside in oil, a continuing theme, it did however translate to some minor underperformance in the DJIA. The DJIA finished up 0.28% at 18,568.87, S&P 500 finished up 0.46% at 2175.03 and the NASDAQ-100 finished up 0.41% at 4,666.07.

It is worth noting that a situation in Munich garnered much of the attention in the US afternoon. Although at the time of writing it is unclear what exactly took place, it does seem from the early reports as though several shooters attacked multiple locations, with at least five dead. Although, the market affect was muted, Bunds did appear to initially benefit in a minor way from the reports.

Treasuries saw choppy trade, with analysts at Informa noting early pro/day trade pressure followed by a grinding short covering rally. Next week sees the FOMC rate decision with plenty of other data on the slate, as such there was deemed to be a fair amount of position squaring. 10y T-note Sep’16 futures closed lower by 3+ ticks at 132.04.

Next week highlights include the FOMC meeting, in which participants will be looking to gauge the committee’s thoughts regarding the impact of the UK’s decision to leave the EU. While towards the latter of the week focus will be placed upon the BoJ’s latest rate decision where many expect additional stimulus measures to be announced. Finally, earnings season continues in full swing with reports from the likes of Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook, Boeing and ExxonMobil.
