What’s in Today’s Report:
- ECB Preview
- Have Treasury Yields Bottomed?
Stock futures are flat while most international markets rallied overnight thanks to incremental progress on trade amid a continuation of the recent rotation into cyclicals.
There were no notable economic reports overnight.
China announced tariff exemptions for multiple U.S. imports o/n which is an incremental positive as both sides have made modest concessions in recent weeks.
The rotation from momentum to cyclicals is continuing overseas, a theme that will remain in focus today. Remember that because of the heavy weighting of big tech stocks in the major indexes, this rotation could remain a headwind on the broader stock market in the near term.
Today, there is one economic report to watch: PPI (E: 0.1%) and no Fed officials are scheduled to speak.
There is a 10-Yr Treasury Note Auction at 1:00 p.m. ET and depending on the reaction from the bond market, there could be an impact on stocks however investor focus has largely shifted forward to the ECB tomorrow which will likely keep stocks largely paralyzed for the next 24 hours.
