Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Morning, Traders!
It is Friday the 10th of May, here are some things to look out for today.

Stocks rose in response to positive profit reports and US statistics that bolstered the case for interest rate reductions, and traders await the latest round of Fed speakers throughout the day.

The case for rate cuts was strengthened by higher-than-expected applications for US unemployment benefits on Thursday, which gave the market a further boost.
The rise that had been driven by tech giants is being broadened by the so-called value and cyclical sectors, as traders await a significant US inflation print due next week.
