Marijuana banking bill passes the House Financial Services Committee

marijuana stocks
From Steve Goldstein: The House Financial Services Committee easily cleared a bill to provide a safe harbor for banks that work with the legal cannabis industry. The 45-15 vote allows the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act to go to the House floor. Despite the clearance and strong chances for approval in the House of Representatives, the bill's prospects don't look as good in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Dow Jones Industrial Average trades rallies on report that U.S. economy grew 2.9% in 2018

2019 Stocks increase
From Sunny Oh: Stocks were slightly higher Thursday after an update of fourth-quarter gross domestic product showed the U.S. economy had expanded at a 2.9% pace for the full year of 2018. The S&P 500 SPX, +0.06% was up 0.3% to around 2,813. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.04% picked up 108 points, or 0.4%, to 25,725. The Nasdaq Composite COMP, -0.01% rose 0.2% to 7,659.

In company news, Lyft Inc. LYFT, +0.00% is set to price later on Thursday, ahead of the ride-hailing firm's planned initial public offering on Friday.

Gold Mining Sector is Rising on Global Economic Fears

Gold Price
From Frank Holmes:

Bond yields are crashing in major markets all around the world as fears of a global economic slowdown have prompted investors to seek shelter in low-risk government debt. Both Germany and Japan's 10-year bond yields are back below zero, marking the first time we've seen German yields turn negative since October 2016. As I shared with you last week, the pool of negative-yielding bonds around the globe now stands at a post-2017 high of $9.32 trillion. Yields in Australia and New Zealand have also fallen to record lows, according to Bloomberg.

Homebuilders ETF drops despite the bullish ‘golden cross’ pattern set to appear

ETF investing
From Tomi Kilgore: The SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF XHB, +0.08% fell 0.5% in afternoon trade Tuesday, in the wake of disappointing housing data, ironically on the same day that a bullish "golden cross" chart pattern is set to appear. Of the ETF's 35 equity components, 25 were trading lower. Earlier, data showed that February housing starts dropped a more-than-expected 9% and home price growth slowed in January, to the slowest pace in 6 1/2 years. Meanwhile, a "golden cross" is when the 50-day moving average, a short-term trend guide, crosses above the 200-day moving average (DMA), a longer-term trend tracker. Many chart watchers believe the crosses mark the spot a short-term rally transforms into a longer-term uptrend. The homebuilders ETF's (XHB) 50-DMA currently extended to $37.377 while 200-DMA was at $37.370, according to FactSet. That would mark the first time the XHB's 50-DMA was above the 200-DMA since April 20, 2018, and be the first "golden cross" since Jan. 23, 2017. Among the XHB's more active components Tuesday, shares of D.R. Horton Inc. DHI, -0.88% shed 2.0%, Lennar Corp. LEN, +0.32% gave up 0.7%, Lowe's Companies Inc. LOW, -0.07% slipped 0.1%, Home Depot Inc. HD, -0.18% declined 0.2% and PulteGroup Inc.PHM, +0.62% lost 0.1%.

Gold prices fall as stocks and yields rise

mountain of gold
From Myra P. Saefong & Rachel Koning Beals: Gold futures on Tuesday settled in negative territory, giving back the bulk of gains from a day earlier that landed the metal at its highest finish in about a month. Stocks and other assets perceived as risky regained some footing higher on the session, dulling the appeal of the haven metal.
