Wall Street Week Ahead: Beyond earnings, buybacks to give market support

NEW YORK (Reuters) – It is a tossup whether the market found a bottom this week, but bulls could find some support as corporations, mostly on the sidelines as the market tumbled, step up their stock purchases in the coming weeks.

The equities selloff had its climax on Wednesday afternoon when the S&P 500 set its low for the week as concern over the global economy, conflicting views on the timing of the next policy move by the Federal Reserve, and headlines about the Ebola virus made investors even more skittish.

Analysis – Investors search for signs of end to stock market correction

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Measuring the point at which investors have exhausted their selling in a market downturn is an inexact science at best, and at its worst akin to sticking a finger in the air to judge shifting winds.

By some measures, the near 10 percent decline in the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index from a record high last month may already have flushed out much of the speculative money that helped propel a bull market in stocks beyond the average length.

Bonds rally, stocks fall as global economy fears mount

NEW YORK, Oct 15 (Reuters) – Stocks took a pounding on
Wednesday, although Wall Street managed to peddle back from its
steepest lows, and safe-haven government debt prices rose after
U.S. and Chinese inflation data fanned worries about a global
slowdown.

A key gauge of Wall Street anxiety hit its highest level
since November 2011 as investors rushed to buy protection
against further losses, and options activity surged as investors
reevaluated their strategies in light of the latest signs that
the global economy may be losing its footing.

Stocks slump, bonds rally as global economy fears mount

NEW YORK, Oct 15 (Reuters) – Stocks suffered their biggest
losses in years and the dollar slumped on Wednesday after the
latest inflation data from the United States and China fanned
worries about a global slowdown, driving investors into
safe-haven government debt.

The S&P 500 fell nearly 3 percent, putting it on track for
its worst day in nearly three years, while European equities
finished 3.2 percent lower and marked their biggest
one-day slide in almost four years.

Stocks slump, bonds rally as global growth fears mount

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stocks and the U.S. dollar slumped and safe-haven government debt rallied on Wednesday, as investors around the globe resumed their flight from riskier assets after weak U.S. and Chinese inflation figures.

Selling in stocks appeared panicky at the open on Wall Street, with major indexes down more than 2 percent early in the session. Markets cut losses in half but indexes remained at multi-month lows.

Oil crumbles, bond prices up on economy fears

NEW YORK, Oct 14 (Reuters) – Brent crude prices marked their
biggest decline in more than three years on Tuesday and U.S. and
German debt attracted buyers on lingering anxiety over world
economic growth.

Wall Street struggled to maintain gains, after rising more
than 1 percent earlier, as energy shares slid to enter a bear
market.

Bond prices rally on growth fears, oil down

NEW YORK, Oct 14 (Reuters) – Lingering anxiety over world
economic growth pushed investors into safe-haven U.S. and German
debt on Tuesday and oil prices tumbled, but Wall Street stocks
staged a rebound, buoying a measure of global equity markets.

Worries about a slowing global economy and fears of Ebola
have made investors skittish of late. On Monday, the CBOE
Volatility Index, or VIX, the equity market’s preferred gauge of
anxiety, hit its highest level since June 2012. With Wall
Street’s rebound on Tuesday, the VIX fell 9.3 percent to
22.35.
