Stocks pulled out small gains today, for the fifth consecutive session. The S&P 500 has now gained in 11 out of 16 sessions since its Feb. 11 low, and closed last week above its 100-day moving average for first time in 2016. The Federal Reserve FOMC meets next week to determine monetary policy and the battle lines are being drawn. Fed Governor Lael Brainard, who has emerged as a leader of the Fed’s dovish faction, argued for “patience” in raising interest rates. Fed Vice-Chair Stanley Fischer, who has consistently sounded more hawkish than many of his colleagues, warned that inflation is showing signs of accelerating; which would indicate his preference for raising rates. Adding to the mixed signals, the European Central Bank meets this week and is widely expected to expand its stimulus measures, which likely means they go more negative. The big questions being how big and in what form? And that would just make a Fed rate hike all the more awkward. Negative rates have been spreading through important sectors of high finance …

China’s Shanghai Composite tumbled 5.3% on Monday, bringing its 2016 loss to 14.8%. The sell-off did not trigger circuit breakers because the Chinese exchanges gave up on that idea after last week’s big declines. The decline came even after the yuan gained following a second intervention from the central bank. Oil prices are sharply lower to start off the week as concerns over demand from China impact trading again, along with some fresh worries. Morgan Stanley is the latest major investment firm to forecast oil prices could fall into the $20s with the U.S. dollar continuing to strengthen against major currencies. WTI crude futures dropped under $32 a barrel; that is a 12 year low.

Meanwhile, oil is being pumped out of the ground as if price doesn’t matter. Maybe we need to re-think the idea that oil-dependent economies like Saudi Arabia aren’t so much pumping oil now to defend market share but to get oil out of the ground while it has any value at all. …
