LIVE MARKETS-Europe: worst session since June 2020

Fri 26th November, 2021 4:57pm
* Major U.S. indexes slide; banks, small caps take big hits * All major S&P 500 sectors red: energy down most * Euro STOXX 600 index ends down 3.7% * Dollar down; gold up; crude, bitcoin collapse * U.S. 10-Year Treasury yield ~1.50% Nov 26 - Welcome to the home for real-time coverage of markets brought to you by Reuters reporters. You can share your thoughts with us at EUROPE: WORST SESSION SINCE JUNE 2020 (1153 EST/1653 GMT) European stocks got their worst beating since June 2020 with a 3.7% fall and the extent of the market turmoil had many similarities with the March 2020 COVID-19 crash. Travel and leisure stocks plunged a whopping 8.7%, a performance unmatched since March 2020 with airlines stocks being dumped in a dramatic fashion. BA owner IAG fell about 15% after Britain banned flights from South Africa and Ryanair lost 12%. Cruise operator Carnival was the top loser with a 16% drop. Many other countries are already putting in place travel restrictions amid fears the new variant might be to some degree vaccine resistant. With a new wave of social restrictions already being implemented across Europe, investors are taking no chances. The travel and leisure index is now down 6.6% since the beginning of the year and has lost nearly 20% this month alone. It's obviously not a good time to be building planes and Airbus has fallen 11%. Banks, which have become a barometer of the pandemic crisis also had an excruciating day, losing 6.7%, their worst session since June 2020. But the pain was well spread and cyclical stocks across other sectors such as car makers, miners, energy, insurance, retail, construction and industrials fell between 4% and 6%. There were little safe places to hide and even pharma, the best performing sector today, lost 1.2%. (Julien Ponthus) ***** BEARS POKE THEIR HEADS UP (1137 EST/1637 GMT) The percentage of investors with a bearish short-term outlook for the U.S. stock market has risen to its highest level since early October in the latest American Association of Individual Investors Sentiment Survey (AAII). With this, both bullish and neutral sentiment declined. With these changes, the bull-bear spread fell to -1.90 from +11.6 last week*:nL1N2SA1DY: (Terence Gabriel) ***** U.S. ON THE MAT (1056 EST/1556 GMT) U.S. stocks are being tossed to the floor on Black Friday, triggered by the discovery of a new and possibly vaccine-resistant coronavirus variant. .N Not surprisingly, given renewed coronavirus concerns, more economically sensitive groups and "re-opening plays" are being hit especially hard, while defensive groups see less severe declines. Banks .SPXBK and small caps .RUT are down more than 4%. Energy .SPNY is sliding nearly 6%, while NYMEX crude futures Clcv1 are collapsing more than 11%. The 10-Year U.S. Treasury yield US10YT=RR has plunged to the 1.50% area. Healthcare .SPXHC is a bright spot as the only major S&P 500 .SPX sector up on the day, though just fractionally. This chart shows action in a composite of five major re-opening plays vs a composite of five major stay-at-home stocks*:nL2N2OK299: As the re-opening group is hit relatively harder vs stay-at-home plays, the ratio is on track for its biggest daily percentage decline in more than a year. Meanwhile, retail stocks are also down sharply on this Black Friday. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF .XRT.P is off more than 3%. Here is where markets stand in mid-morning trading: (Terence Gabriel) ***** U.S. STOCKS POISED TO PLUNGE (0900 EST/1400 GMT) U.S. equity index futures are sliding on Friday, with travel, bank and commodity-linked stocks bearing the brunt of the selloff, as the discovery of a new and possibly vaccine-resistant coronavirus variant, spooked investors ahead of a short trading session. .N Of note, over the past 10 years, the day after Thanksgiving has been relatively quiet. On average, the Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI has opened down around 0.05% and ended the day with a 0.05% gain. Over this period, the DJI's range on that Friday as a percentage of the prior trading day's close has averaged only around 0.6%. As stands, the CBOE Market Volatility Index .VIX has popped to a more than two-month high, and CBT e-mini Dow Futures 1YMcv1 are suggesting the Dow will plunge more than 2% in the early throes of this Black-Friday session.*:nL4N2SH2YS And at more than 3%, the Dow Futures' range so far today as a percentage of Wednesday's close is its biggest since early January.*:nL4N2SH30J All of this is occurring in the wake of pronounced technical deterioration across the market. Click here:*:nL1N2SF0TU Thus, based on the futures' action, the DJI's 50-day moving average (DMA), which ended Wednesday around 35,260, can quickly come under pressure. The Dow has not closed below this intermediate-term moving average since October 13: The DJI's 200-DMA ended Wednesday around 34,300. The blue-chip average has not closed below this long-term moving average since July 13, 2020. A key support line resides around 34,000.
