U.S. stock futures were little changed Tuesday after the Dow Jones Industrial Average surpassed 38,000 for the first time ever. Dow futures fell 47 points, or 0.1%. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures both rose around 0.1%. United Airlines rose more than 6% in the premarket after reporting strong fourth-quarter results. However, the airline operator said it expects a first-quarter loss from the grounding of Boeing 737 Max 9 airplanes, the model involved in the Alaska Airlines emergency earlier this month. Shares of other airline operators rose in tandem with United. American AirlinesSouthwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines all climbed more than 2%, while Alaska Air Group advanced more than 1%. Outside of airlines, General Electric and 3M dropped more than 3% and 6%, respectively, on the back of weak outlooks. Monday was a notable trading session for the major averages. The 30-stock Dow advanced more than 100 points, or 0.4%, to hit a new record and close above 38,000 for the first time. The broad S&P 500 rose 0.2%, also hitting a new all-time high. The technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite gained 0.3%. Those moves add to the S&P 500′s advance after the broad market index officially reached bull market territory on Friday, topping both its previous intraday and closing all-time highs from January 2022. But investors are deliberating how long the gains can persist, especially as the rally this year has centered around tech stocks such as Nvidia, while broader participation has continued to disappoint. This month alone, Nvidia is up 20%. In contrast, the small-cap Russell 2000 is lower by 2%. “The market is priced to perfection right now, I mean, we just hit all-time highs today,” Cheryl Young, private advisor at the Rockefeller Global Family Office, said on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Monday. “So, any kind of shocks could cause some pretty big pullbacks here. So, I still love most of these Magnificent Seven names, but I’m adding protection right now.” U.S. Treasury yields nudged slightly higher on Tuesday, as market participants await the release of key economic data points later in the week. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was nearly 4 basis points higher at 4.132%. The yield on the 2-year Treasury was up more than 3 basis points at 4.413%.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index jumped almost 3%, with tech stocks leading the charge. Bloomberg reported that Chinese authorities were considering a stimulus package worth 2 trillion yuan ($278.53 billion) to stabilize the country’s stock markets. Mainland China’s CSI 300 rose 0.4%, rebounding off a near-five year low, to close at 3,231.93. The Nikkei 225 slipped marginally to close at 36,517.58, while the Topix fell 0.11% to 2,542.07.

South Korea’s Kospi added 0.58% to 2,478.61, while the small-cap Kosdaq index was flat and ended at 840.11. Oil prices fell on Tuesday as investors monitored the war in Ukraine, the conflict in the Middle East and the restart of production at a major oilfield in Libya. The West Texas Intermediate contract for March fell $1.27, or 1.61%, to trade at $73.56 a barrel. The Brent contract for March lost $1.21, or 1.41%, to trade at $78.93 a barrel. Gold prices rebounded on Tuesday, helped by a weaker U.S. dollar, while investors looked forward to more U.S. economic data this week that could set the tone for the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting next week. Spot gold was up 0.3% at $2,026.95 per ounce. U.S. gold futures also rose 0.3% to $2,028.60. “The softer U.S. dollar is allowing spot gold to edge higher, despite diluted bets for a Fed rate cut in March,” said Han Tan, chief market analyst at Exinity Group.
