“The market has done well this year. It took a break in August and now investors are looking for clues as to what the end of the year will look like,” said Adam Sarhan of 50 Park Investments.

In this context, operators noted the drop in the Caixin index of activity in services in China, which fell to 51.8 points in August against 54.1 in July.

“Historically, China is often a good indicator of the global economy,” says Adam Sarhan. “So when China is slowing down, that’s an early sign.”

These poor macroeconomic figures come as the New York market emerges from a three-day weekend (Monday was a public holiday) to begin a week during which, on the American side, few indicators and company results are expected.

In addition, September has the reputation of being the worst month of the year for equities, which does not entice investors to commit.

For Adam Sarhan, the good course that stocks have had this year remains fragile, because it is essentially due to a handful of technological stocks boosted by the vogue of artificial intelligence.

Sam Stovall of CFRA Research notes that the movement has recently broadened to more sectors and stocks, and sees this as reason for optimism.

The lack of momentum in equities was also due to the recent rise in bond yields, which firmed up again on Tuesday. The yield on 10-year US government bonds stood at 4.24%, against 4.17% on Friday at the close.

On the stock market, the giant technological capitalizations were marking time, likeAmazon (AMZN, -1,30%), Nvidia (NVDA, -0.77%) or Apple (AAPL, -0,59%).
