Market Indexes: 3 out of 4 indexes fell this past week, with only the Russell small caps finishing in positive territory, 0.39%. The DOW was down over -2% so far in September, while the S&P was close behind, down -2%.

“World shares fell on Friday, pressured by concerns over China’s markets, the potential for a U.S. corporate tax hike and an update on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s tapering strategy next week. The Federal Reserve, facing a labor market that may be stalling or on the cusp of a surge, is expected next week to open the door to reducing its monthly bond purchases while tying any actual change to U.S. job growth in September and beyond.

“The big test comes as we move past the Delta wave – we will see how long it takes to loosen up the supply side of the economy,” wrote Bank of America economist Michelle Meyer. “Whether the supply constraints are fleeting or persistent matters for the Fed. The former allows for easy policy to continue.”

"The U.S. 10-year treasury note yield rose to touch a two-month high, and the dollar touched a three-week high.” (Reuters)

“OPEC said on Monday that demand for oil was expected to rebound above pre-pandemic levels next year.

In its Monthly Oil Report, the group said that it expected oil demand to average 100.8 million barrels per day in 2022, compared with just over 100 million barrels a day in 2019 before the pandemic took hold. China, for instance, is expected to consume almost 15 million barrels a day in oil next year, 1.5 million barrels a day more than it burned in 2019.

The pandemic slammed oil demand, which plummeted by around nine million barrels a day last year, or about 9 percent, OPEC said. Oil consumption has recovered strongly, but the emergence of the fast-spreading Delta variant has applied the brakes. Now, OPEC expects some of the recovery in oil demand previously forecast this year to be put off until 2022.” (NY Times)

That such a tiny amount could be the tipping point for a $355 billion behemoth with more than 1,300 developments across China and over $300 billion of liabilities shows how bad things are.
