What Yesterday’s Rebound Means for Markets

What’s in Today’s Report:

  • Five Reasons Stocks Rallied Yesterday
  • What the Rebound Means for Markets

Futures are slightly higher as markets digest Thursday’s rebound amidst more positive news from the UK.

Support for the Truss spending/tax cut plan has totally eroded and markets are hopeful the plan will be scrapped entirely, and that’s helping global bond yields fall.

Today there are two notable economic reports, Retail Sales (E: 0.2%) and University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment (E: 58.8), but the key for markets will be the inflation expectations within Consumer Sentiment and if the five-year inflation expectations fall further below 3.0%, that’ll be a positive for markets.  We also get two Fed speakers, George (10:00 a.m. ET) and Cook (10:30 a.m. ET) but we don’t expect them to move markets.

Earnings season also unofficially starts today and key reports to watch include: JPM ($2.97), MS ($1.51), C ($1.55), WFC ($1.09), PNC ($3.66), USB ($1.17) and FRC ($2.19).  If results are better than expected, that can extend Thursday’s rebound.
