sarah: it really has. very much so because we are seeing the individual names in the index outperforming. at the same time, when you think about u.s. and china the it makes you think is it affecting the underpinnings of the market. 500, butn the s&p still green. >> just barely. the nasdaq the out performer. we get fedex earnings later. earnings report took investors by surprise with that disappointing global outlook. joe: it will be interesting to hear what they say about trade. caroline: and they global bellwether as well. let's get the analysis. with so much action from
4:01 pm
investors today, higher earlier, then lower. just about flat now. let's look at the technicals. this is the s&p 500 last all-time high. thatchart would support range. if you extend this back when , but 2600 is well-founded the near-term range is well-founded. we have the monster rally reversing. level ofck below that resistance. we could see choppy trading towards 2700. we could move lower if that asgestion continues to hold it has. >> one of the biggest u.s. ipos last year flew under the radar.
4:02 pm
today, it is having its day, shares up 18%. it is the brazilian version of square. it sold shares to the public last october at $24, then fell below that ipo price. it has rallied off the lows it 70% from itser, up ipo price. i should also point out this company has some very big ,nvestors, berkshire hathaway walmartas the heris fortune, 3g capital, and ant financial. >> now does a market that does not have earning estimates going
4:03 pm
up, that can't get a trade war resolution, show strength and resilience? real yields keep falling. the three-month correlation realen five-year yields in the s&p 500 is at one of its most negative levels in history. can that persist tomorrow? that will be a big question. this relationship holds across asset classes, credit, gold, etc., and you have seen five-year you yields come off their lows and the stock market start to crack a little, especially in rate-sensitive sectors. caroline: fedex out with numbers, a miss, third quarter earnings at $3.03.
4:04 pm
that was down significantly from the previous year. revenue, $17 billion. that is a miss. earnings per share was set to fall. the market down 3.7%, almost 4%. joe: we have the quote "slowing global macroeconomic conditions" continue. they also cite costs as a factor hitting earnings. their outlook on the global economy is still not good. scarlet: this is the fifth straight quarter that fedex has fallen. this is just the first take. we will see what happens tomorrow. quarters, fedex has phone the day after it's reported its results four
4:05 pm
straight times. the previous time it plunged 4%. caroline: this is already down 28% in the last 12 months. many thought this was a buy. scarlet: canada forecasting a $15 billion.t of it sees its debt to gdp ratio by 2023,wn to 28.6% versus just under 31% in 2019. not much movement on the currency, stronger at the moment. caroline: let's bring in matt and the sarah. matt, your take on earnings, global bad weather' bellwether . >> earnings will be in a soft patch this quarter, especially
4:06 pm
companies that have exposure outside the u.s. when you look at companies with revenue outside the u.s., you could see double digits that will weigh on corporate earnings. we saw in the energy patch. we are seeing it now. our expectation is this is a soft patch and we will get through it. scarlet: isn't that everything in the s&p 500? exposurep 500 is inside the u.s.. outside the u.s., 30% on a revenue basis. many companies are globally exposed, but it is not the dominant exposure. joe: i mention the fund manager survey. it says one of the tail risks with china. that is confusing to me. we talk about that all the time.
4:07 pm
it is striking the concerns overseas are not going away. they are top of investor mind. when you think about what this survey did show, equity investors across the globe are this is seen as its own tailwind. bank of america are saying investors are underinvested, sitting on the sidelines. if you get what you need, that could boost markets as people feel comfortable to get back in, but what is that next catalyst going to be? scarlet: matt, how do you position? >> stay with quality companies in the u.s.. we think earnings will resume in the second half. you want to stay there and look to international markets as they bottom them in particular asia. equities over time.
4:08 pm
scarlet: thank you so much. we have fedex falling in after-hours trading after third-quarter adjusted eps in revenue both missing estimates. $15.10 --er share of $15.90. the stock falling in after-hours trading. that does it for the closing bell.

4:12 pm
let's bring in the senior fellow at the council on foreign relations. one of the interesting aspects of this administration as you will have different factions within the administration with different goals, different senses of what is going on. when you look at what is reported on what china has offered on things like intellectual property, can you see issues or concerns on the chinese side? i think the first and most obvious thing to note is .egotiations tend to stretch on without a scheduled summit, there will be more time to haggle. it is hard to know if china is really walking things back or if something not entirely clear remain so. what struck me most is there isn't yet clarity about the path
4:13 pm
to removal of u.s. tariffs, and i don't think it is realistic for china to put its best offer on the table unless they get a clear sign that the majority of the tariffs will roll back. romaine: do you have a vision of what a u.s.-china trade deal would look like? generalnk there is some consensus on the broad contours of the deal. there will be a large chinese purchase commitment at the center of the deal. that tends to be what the president cares most about. there will be some modest market announced,me already the relaxation of jv requirements in automobiles and financial services. there will be some tit-for-tat tariffs that are rolled back. as part of the purchase
