The overall market is currently experiencing normal macro volatility.

Some of the largest moves in the market today include: US Dollar Index has experienced a very large move of +0.6%. Gold has experienced a large move of -0.8%. USD/CNH has experienced a large move of +0.4%. 

Recent market movements have been influenced by a combination of central bank policy, economic data releases, and geopolitical events. 

Firstly, stock benchmarks in two key Asian economies reached historic highs on January 15th while U.S markets were closed for Martin Luther King Day; this could reflect investor optimism or specific regional developments affecting those markets. 

Lastly, Germany’s economy experienced contraction last year which signals ongoing challenges that may affect broader European growth prospects as well as global demand dynamics.

AI-generated summaries of notable premarket ETF moves:

US DOLLAR INDEX | USDX/USD $103.29 +0.6%
The US Dollar Index has increased by 0.6% despite weaker manufacturing data in New York and geopolitical tensions causing a risk-off sentiment, strengthening the dollar. Hawkish comments from Atlanta Federal Reserve President Raphael Bostic have also supported USD strength.

GOLD | XAU/USD $2038.3 -0.8%
Gold’s price has moved -0.7% since the previous close, potentially influenced by changes in US monetary policy and geopolitical instability driving up demand for safe haven investments like gold during uncertain times or conflicts. The movement may also be related to a -0.53% return in EUR/USD, as there is some degree of correlation between these two securities’ movements (correlation coefficient of 0.58).

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc | TMO $519.00 -4.6%
Health Care, Life Sciences Tools & Services
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc’s price has declined significantly (-4.6%) since the previous close, potentially due to weakness in its sector and a correlated decrease in the Russell 2000 Index (US) of -0.93%. The two securities have a moderate level of correlation (coefficient: 0.62), suggesting some influence on Thermo Fisher Scientific’s stock performance today.

Morgan Stanley | MS $87.16 -3.4%
Financials, Investment Banking & Brokerage
Morgan Stanley’s stock moved -2.6% since the previous close, possibly influenced by their Q4 earnings report and comments made during their conference call. The company reported higher than expected EPS of $1.13 but missed estimates on net income due to one-time charges related to FDIC special assessments and legal charges. However, they reaffirmed long-term goals for wealth management growth and maintaining a strong capital position with commitment to dividend continuation being paramount. 

Tractor Supply Co | TSCO $216.17 -3.4%
Consumer Discretionary, Other Specialty Retail
Tractor Supply Co’s stock has moved -2.9% since the previous close, potentially due to its underperformance compared to sector peers and broader market movements. Recent articles highlight Tractor Supply’s resilience as an investment option but also mention Morgan Stanley’s “underweight” rating with a potential downside of 12.78%. 

Boeing Co | BA $211.00 -3.2%
Industrials, Aerospace & Defense
Boeing Co’s stock has declined -3.0% due to concerns over production and delivery delays caused by the FAA extending the grounding of Boeing 737 MAX 9 airplanes for safety checks after an incident with Alaska Airlines. Wells Fargo downgraded Boeing, citing increased risk in production/delivery impact. China Southern Airlines is also planning additional safety inspections on delivered aircrafts following the same incident that led to FAA grounding. 

Apple Inc | AAPL $182.18 -2.0%
Information Technology, Technology Hardware, Storage & Peripherals
Apple Inc’s stock price has moved down significantly since the previous close. This could be influenced by reports of weakening demand for iPhones in China, leading to rare discounts being offered on Apple products. Additionally, Microsoft surpassing Apple as the world’s most valuable company and potential legal requirements may have impacted investor sentiment towards Apple.
