Stock futures are modestly lower and Treasury yields are testing YTD highs this morning amid new multi-month highs in oil and better-than-feared EU economic data.

Economically, the final EU Manufacturing PMI for March was revised up from 45.7 to 46.1 which is still in contraction territory but adding pressure to global bond markets.

Looking into today’s session, we will get data on Motor Vehicle Sales early (E: 16.0 million) but trader focus will be on two more important reports for the outlook for the economy and critically Fed policy: Factory Orders (E: 1.0%) and JOLTS (E: 8.8 million).

If either of the latter two reports come in “hot” expect the 10-Yr to extend pre-market gains and stocks to remain under pressure today.

Additionally, there are a few Fed speakers on the calendar with: Bowman (10:10 a.m. ET), Williams (12:00 p.m. ET), Mester (12:05 p.m. ET), and Daly (1:30 p.m. ET). Any pushback on the case for a summer rate cut and a total of three cuts in 2024 will add to hawkish money flows with yields rising and stocks likely extending the so-far-modest weekly declines.
