Good Morning

There is quite a change in the focus on rates – hikes are mainly off the table and the big question is when we see cuts – peak rate futures are seen in November but with less than 50% chance (implied 11 bps) and a full cut is priced in in June 2024.

10 Year Rates rose to 4.25 on Fed Governor Christopher Waller stating the Fed may not change rates soon. Rising oil prices will fuel inflation – at least in certain metrics. To add confusion, US Factory Orders declined – albeit less than feared.  while Goldman Sachs lowered the probability for a recession.

Weak PMI in Europe further weighed on risk sentiment and global Indexes fell while the USD gained.

The Dow fell 0.56%, the  S&P 0.42% and the Nasdaq 0.08%, the USD Index rose to 104.80, EURUSD 1.0733, GBPUSD 1.2577 and USDJPY 147.20. Gold broke below  the 50 day simple moving averaes and are trading at 23.55 and 1927, Bitcoin fell below 26k. Tesla gained on reported higher deliveries in China, Airbnb and Blackstone will join the S&P 500 and rise 7 and 3.6% respectively.

Today we are awaiting US Trade data, the Canadian Rate decision, S&P PMI and the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI. Comments by Collin and Logan will be closely watched


In  an unclear macro environment, technical levels are watched closely.
