Stock futures are lower and oil is up 3% as tensions in the Middle East remain elevated despite President Biden’s visit to Israel.
Chinese economic data topped estimates across the board overnight. But an imminent default by embattled property developer Country Garden weighed on sentiment in Asian markets.
In Europe, U.K. CPI came in hot as it held steady at 6.7% vs. (E) 6.5% in September. While the Eurozone HICP “Narrow Core” met estimates at 4.5%.
Looking into today’s session, there will remain considerable focus on the conflict between Israel and Hamas amid Biden’s visit to the region and if no progress is made towards a ceasefire, rising oil prices will continue to act as a headwind on risk assets.
