Stocks snap losing skid as Fed official hints that central bank may lower rates aggressivelyU.S. equity benchmarks finished the session mostly higher Thursday after Federal Reserve Bank of New York President John Williams said the central bank needs to act quickly to quash signs of economic weakness.

The blue-chip index closed virtually unchanged on the day at 27,222, while the S&P 500 index climbed 0.4% to end at 2,995, and the Nasdaq Composite Index closed 0.3% higher at 8,207. in a world where interest rates are lower than they have been historically, central banks must confront any sign of weakness quickly and aggressively.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that U.S.-China trade talks were set to begin again. But prospects for a successful resolution came in doubt after The Wall Street Journal reported the Trump administration was unsure how to follow through with Beijing's demands that the U.S. ease restrictions on Huawei Technologies Co.

Dow snaps 4-day win streak, narrowly misses longest string of records in 1 1/2 yearsThe three major U.S. stock benchmarks snapped a multisession win streak on Tuesday as President Donald Trump said an agreement with China on trade tariffs had "a long way to go," and a trio of the U.S.'s largest banks reported quarterly results. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down by about 24 points, or less than 0.1%, at 27,336, ending four straight days of gains. If the Dow had finished in positive territory, it would have marked the longest streak of records for the blue-chip index since Dec. 13, 2017, according to Dow Jones Market Data. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 closed off 0.3% at 3,004, halting a 5-day win streak and the Nasdaq Composite Index finished down 0.4% at 8,222, ending its string of gains at two. All three benchmarks closed at records on Monday. Investors digested earnings JPMorgan Chase & Co. , Goldman Sachs , and Wells Fargo & Co. , which delivered on lowered expectations but came as the Federal Reserve was expected to lower rates, currently at a range of 2.25%-2.50% at the end of July to combat the effects of tariff conflicts between the U.S. and China. Banks tend to benefit from a higher-rate environment because the institutions borrow over a short-term basis and lend over a longer term. JPMorgan, for one, said that it was lowering its forecast for net interest margin, which helped to put pressure on its shares. Goldman's stock, however, rose 1.9%, as the investment bank surprised by beating analysts' average estimates firmly on profit and revenue. On the economic front, June retail sales rose 0.4% compared against May, coming in ahead of the 0.1% gain expected by economists polled by MarketWatch. Still, Dallas Federal Reserve chief Robert Kaplan also said Tuesday that inflation is likely to remain low because of the vast changes new technologies have had on wages and prices.

JPMorgan tops profit and revenue estimates JPMorgan Chase & Co. said Tuesday it had net income of $9.652 billion, or $2.82 a share, in the second quarter, up from $8.316 billion, or $2.29 a share, in the year-earlier period. Revenue rose to $29.566 billion from $28.388 billion. The FactSet consensus was for EPS of $2.50 and revenue of $28.835 billion. The bank said net interest income rose 7% to $14.5 billion, driven by balance sheet growth and mix along with the benefit of higher interest rates. Non-interest income came to $15.0 billion, up 2%. Provisions for credit losses came to $1.1 billion, down 5%. Markets and securities services revenue came to $6.4 billion, down 1%. Fixed income markets revenue fell 3%, hurt weakness in EMEA, which was offset by increased client activity in North American rates and agency mortgage trading. Equity markets revenue fell 12% to $1.7 billion, driven by lower client activity in derivatives. "We continue to see positive momentum with the U.S. consumer - healthy confidence levels, solid job creation and rising wages - which are reflected in our Consumer & Community Banking results," Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said in a statement. Shares fell 1.5% premarket, but have gained 17.7% in 2019, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 17.3% and the S&P 500 has gained 20.2%.
