Market Multiple Table: April Update

What’s in Today’s Report:

  • Market Multiple Table: April Update

Futures are modestly lower with European markets while oil rallies and global bond yields move higher amid simmering geopolitical tensions and lingering inflation fears.

Economically, Final Composite PMI data was mostly better than expected in Europe overnight but price measures continued to rise, suggesting inflation has still not peaked.

Today, we will get two economic reports starting with International Trade (E: -$88.8B), but the ISM Services Index (E: 58.5) will be the more important release to watch shortly after the opening bell as a continued rise in the price measures could further stoke inflation/stagflation fears.

Additionally, there are multiple Fed speakers today: Kashkari (10:00 a.m. ET), Brainard (11:05 a.m. ET), Daly (12:30 p.m. ET), and Williams (2:00 p.m. ET). And if their tone is more hawkish than current market expectations, that could send yields to new highs and pressure high growth tech names which would drag the broad market lower.
