What’s in Today’s Report:
- One of Two S&P 500 3000 Conditions Met
- Why the Dollar and Bond Yields Have Decoupled
Futures are little changed following a night of no new trade news and slightly underwhelming economic data.
Global markets all rallied on momentum from the Thursday gains in the U.S., but nothing new occurred on trade overnight.
Economic data was slightly disappointing as EU Composite PMI (54.2 vs. (E) 54.3) slightly missed estimates while EU Manufacturing PMI (53.3 vs. (E) 54.2) badly missed.
Today focus will be on the U.S. September PMI Composite Flash (E: 55.1), and as always we’ll be looking for stability in the economic data to imply this strong economy isn’t losing momentum. Additionally, today is quadruple witching options expiration, so don’t be surprised by big volumes and an uptick in volatility into the close.
