  • CPI Preview:  Good, Bad & Ugly

Futures are modestly lower again following a quiet night of news as investors focus on tomorrow’s CPI report and Fed rate decision.

Economically, the UK Labour Market Report showed higher than expected average earnings (5.9% vs. (E) 5.7%) and that’s pushing back slightly on expectations for a rate cut this summer.

European bond yields remained elevated as polling suggests France’s far-right party should win the election.

Today should be another mostly quiet day as investors await the two potentially major catalysts on Wednesday, although we do get one notable economic report today via the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index (E: 89.7).  However, it’d have to be substantially lower or higher than estimates to move markets.
