Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Morning, Traders!
It is Wednesday the 15th of May, here are some  things to look out for.

US shares were poised to maintain gains from the previous session’s tech-led bounce, with traders betting that Wednesday’s critical US inflation report would not damage the argument for Federal Reserve interest rate reduction.

Futures contracts for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 were barely changed, while the MSCI All Country World Index continued its longest streak of gains since January. The S&P 500 climbed today ahead of US consumer price index data, despite Jerome Powell’s warnings that interest rates would remain high for a longer period of time and a mixed report on producer inflation.

Treasury rates fell, and the dollar index weakened ahead of the inflation data, which is expected to indicate a small reduction in price hikes.
