Midday Market View

Europe’s auto stocks were on the skids again on Thursday after fresh data showed that the recovery in sales had gone into reverse in August. U.S. stocks are set to open sharply lower Thursday, with investors disappointed that the Federal Reserve decided against adding more stimulus to advance its goal of spurring inflation. Congress continues to struggle to reach a deal on a new coronavirus aid bill although President Donald Trump has injected some life into talks and thus some investors had hoped the Fed would carry out more of the heavy lifting by injecting more monetary stimulus. Oil prices fell Thursday, rebalancing after recent strong gains as producers in the Gulf of Mexico took steps to resume output in the wake of Hurricane Sally.
