Podcast: Equities climb wall of inflation, yield rise worries
Saxo Market Call
Summary: Today we look at a market posting a strong session yesterday as it brushes aside the pressure from a fresh pop in commodity prices, especially crude oil, and the general rise in global bond yields. Market sentiment and the recently easing financial conditions and especially volatility face a key test today in the form of the latest US payrolls and earnings data and the May ISM Services survey. We also break down the OPEC+ meeting, which agreed on a production increase, but one that looks like political theater given that the cartel can't produce its current quotas. Copper popping higher, FX, earnings up next week and more also on today's pod, which features Peter Garnry on equities, Ole Hansen on commodities and John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.
