Dow futures jump more than 300 points as traders start 2023 on a bullish note


U.S. stock futures rose as investors returned from the festive break in a generally bullish mood.How are stock-index futures trading S&P 500 futures ES00, +1.13% advanced 41 points, or 1.1%, to 3902 Dow Jones Industrial Average futures YM00, +1.03% gained 332 points, or 1%, to 33617 Nasdaq 100 futures NQ00, +1.27% climbed 122 points, or 1.1%, to 11144 On Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.22% fell 74 points, or 0.22%, to 33147, the S&P 500 SPX, -0.25% declined 10 points, or 0.25%, to 3840, and the Nasdaq Composite COMP, -0.11% dropped 12 points, or 0.11%, to 10466. The Nasdaq Composite fell 33.1% in 2022, the largest one year percentage decline since 2008. What’s driving markets After Wall Street’s S&P 500 benchmark dropped nearly 20% in 2022, equity investors appeared determined on Tuesday to start the new year of trading on a positive note.


 Activity in index futures was choppy, however, with the S&P 500 contract wobbling in a 55 point range in early-hours action — volatility that illustrated the uncertainty still pervading the market. “The calendar year may have changed, but the themes remain the same as the U.S. and U.K. markets reopen for 2023,” said Richard Hunter, head of markets at Interactive Investor. “Recessionary concerns will again top the agenda, underpinned by high inflation and rising interest rates. 


This in turn could point to a troubled January as investors search for positive indications that the tightening policies of the central banks may begin to ease given weakening economic data,” Hunter added. Indeed, the International Monetary Fund greeted the new year with a warning that a third of the global economy will suffer recession in 2023, a downturn that will likely trim corporate profits. In addition, a burst of fresh strength in the dollar DXY, +0.96% on Tuesday – a common reaction to global economic slowdown worries – was likely to further crimp earnings of U.S. multinationals. Still, Julian Emanuel , strategist at Evercore ISI, reckoned that such concerns don’t necessarily mean stocks can’t rally. “Forecasting an earnings recession in 2023 to accompany the economic recession that now seems inevitable, along with a 2023 year end S&P 500 price target of 4,150, would seem impossible,” he said in a note to clients. “Yet not only is there a long history of earnings down/stocks up years (1970, 1982 and 1985 stand out, but there is also the tendency for strong stock/bond return years to follow historically forceful tightening cycles (1982, 1985) particularly in years (1995) following ‘havoc being wreaked’ on a 60/40 portfolio such as 2022’s declines.” Emanuel added. U.S. economic updates set for release on Tuesday include the December S&P U.S. manufacturing PMI at 9:45 a.m. and the November reading of construction spending at 10 a.m., both times Eastern.
