NEW YORK, March 8, 2019

NEW YORK, March 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. markets were swayed by the ongoing trade war negotiations this week once again. Markets began the week during Monday's pre-market hours stronger, however, stocks quickly began to plunge throughout the day followed by news regarding the U.S.-China trade wars. Equities were initially up following the news that the U.S. and China were nearing a deal. Despite the optimistic news, investor sentiment was focused elsewhere, causing markets to crash. The consensus regarding the news resulted in a major selloff, causing the Dow Jones Industrial Average to fall by 400 points intraday. Investors argued that the news had already been priced into indexes as the U.S. markets continued the bearish week with investors focused on the ongoing trade war negotiations on Wednesday. The Federal Reserve's Beige Book report also contributed to the weaker markets. The report noted that most central bank districts reported "slight-to-moderate" growth in late January and February. On Thursday, the Dow Jones plummeted by as much as 300 points after the European Central bank slashed its growth forecast and pledged monetary support for its economy. The ECB also announced new strategic measures to support the slowing economy, such as long-term loans as the U.S. markets were on track to close in the red for the fourth straight day on Thursday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell as much as 715 points or 2.7% this week while the S&P 500 fell by as much as 69 points or 2.5%, and the Nasdaq Composite edged lower by 216 points or 2.8%. NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO), Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR), Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF), The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ: COST)

"It's not about what the ECB is doing," said Mike Loewengart, Chief Investment Officer for E*TRADE Capital Management in New York, "it's what they said about their expectations for growth and, really, it's the about-face from what they said a couple of months ago when they discussed ending their version of quantitative easing. So that's what's really going on. People are resetting their growth expectations and investors are responding accordingly." Loewengart said the ECB had announced that it was ending its stimulus "because they felt they were getting to a pretty good place from a growth perspective - That's not what we heard this morning," he continued "We heard the opposite. And that's why markets are down."
