Good Morning Traders!
It is Friday 23rd of June, here are some things to look out for.
As hawkish signals from the Federal Reserve and other major central banks reignited fears of a recession, US equity futures fell, with the benchmark index on track for its worst week since March.
As of 5:19 a.m. in New York, S&P 500 contracts were down 0.5%, bringing the index's weekly loss to 1%. Futures for the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 index fell 0.7%.
After Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell reiterated the need for further tightening and a global risk-off mood fed into further upside for the greenback, the dollar strengthened against all G-10 currencies, putting it on track for its first weekly gain this month. Treasuries rose across the yield curve, joining a broad-based rally in European bonds, as weak euro-zone PMI data re-emphasized the threat of recession.
Money markets increased their bets on further Federal Reserve tightening, pricing in a 100% chance of a 25-basis-point hike by July, up from a 100% chance by September yesterday.
