    Trump administration to make August Obamacare cost-sharing payments

    The Trump administration plans to make the Affordable Care Act's cost-sharing reduction payments this month, a White House spokesman told MarketWatch on Wednesday. The news comes the day after a Congressional Budget Office report found that withholding the payments would increase the federal deficit by $194 billion between 2017 and 2026 and increase gross premiums for certain ACA plans. President Trump has previously threatened to not make the payments, which are scheduled for August 21. The cost-sharing reduction payments pay back health insurers for the increased cost of certain plans on the ACA's marketplaces.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Dow struggles to take flight as Wall Street focuses on earnings; Fed ahead

    The U.S. stock market opened slightly lower on Monday to start a week packed with corporate earnings releases and a midweek meeting of the Federal Reserve. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading less than 0.1% lower at 21,557, the S&P 500 index was off about 0.1% at 2,470. The Nasdaq Composite Index , meanwhile, was trading flat at 6,390. Wall Street investors were paying attention to weakness in the dollar , and conversely strength in the euro . A weaker dollar tends to give a boost to multinational companies selling goods and services abroad, while a strengthening euro can provide a headwind to European companies selling outside of the eurozone. Market participants also watched a meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries for signs of any further moves to limit a glut of crude oil, which has weighed on futures prices . In corporate news, the market was watching the tumble in Hibbett Sports Inc. , which was sinking after it said it expected second-quarter sales to slump. Also, Shares of WebMD Health Corp. soared on news that KKR & Co. was looking to take the health-care information company private. Looking ahead, Google-parent Alphabet Inc. is set to report after the close of trade on Monday. Further out, the Fed kicks off its two-day policy meeting on Tuesday, with the central bank not expected to lift interest rates further, but clues about its policy plans and the state of the U.S. economy will be closely tracked in its updated statement. In economic news, the IHS Markit flash purchasing managers index, a key business survey, came in at 55.8--lower than the 56.2 analysts had expected, and a six-month low for the index. A reading above 50 indicates economic growth. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.
