Morning Preview: June 10, 2022

Early Look

Friday, June 10, 2022









S&P 500










Stock futures in the U.S. are looking lower as inflation remains front and center ahead of the U.S. CPI later this morning (8:30 AM), the next key risk event for the traders with yesterday’s ECB meeting now merely a distant memory. After trading in a roughly 100-point range for the last 2-weeks, stocks finally broke in a direction, unfortunately to the downside, caving the last 2-hours of trading on Thursday to settle at its lowest levels since May 26th ahead of today’s crucial CPI inflation report. The estimate for CPI is to rise +0.7% m/m for May and +8.3% y/y, while on a core basis (ex food & energy), CPI expected to rise +0.5% m/m and +5/9% y/y. If the readings are not in-line to slightly lower, more pain may be in store as it raises the spectre that Fed’s work on rising rates is likely just starting. Amid ongoing worries about the economy and interest rates, the Nasdaq plunged nearly 3% on Thursday, closing at the lows (11,753) while the Dow posted a decline of more than 600 points. Communication Services and Info Tech both dropped the most, down over 2.7%, while Energy, Financials, Health Care, Materials, Real Estate and Utilities all declined more than 2% in the broad-based retreat. Heading into today’s inflation print, economists see a 50 bps rise in June and July, with a 50% probability of a 50-bps hike in September. The median probability for a similar move in November and December was 30% and 25%, respectively. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index tumbles -422 points or 1.49% to 27,824, the Shanghai Index rises 45 points or 1.42% to 3,284 as President Xi urges efforts to balance Covid Zero with the needs of the economy, and the Hang Seng Index slips -62 points to 21,806. In Europe, the German DAX is down -1.43% falling just below 14,000, while the FTSE 100 is down -1.2% to 7,385.
