Good morning traders!
The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading above yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it…
On Tuesday, stock futures hold steady as investors anticipate inflation reports that could sway the Federal Reserve’s stance on interest-rate increases. Despite the stability in the market, a recent survey highlighted a seven-month peak in US business confidence in June, even amidst persistent worries about price pressures stemming from a constricted labor market.
Investors are also weighing the implications of comments from Fed officials hinting at potential further rate hikes. They are keenly awaiting consumer and producer inflation reports due to be released soon. Other key factors under scrutiny include China’s possible actions to strengthen its economy and the potential impact of Amazon’s Prime Day on the retail industry and consumer spending patterns.
In addition, investors are on the lookout for U.S. corporate profit reports to gauge the effects of inflation and a slowdown in consumer spending on businesses. Global markets in Europe and Asia exhibited mixed performance, while U.S. crude oil prices experienced a slight uptick. Minor gains were observed in the S&P 500, Dow Jones, and Nasdaq on Monday.
