Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Morning, Traders!
It is Friday, the 17th of May. Here are some things to look out for today.

Stocks hovered below this week’s record highs, as lower bets on Federal Reserve policy easing prompted a retreat from riskier assets.

US futures contracts were little changed after Wall Street retreated from all-time highs the previous session, while Europe’s benchmark index fell. The dollar index edged higher, and Treasury yields advanced.

This morning’s caution reflected a revision of US rate cut expectations to only one in 2024, after policymakers stated that inflation may take longer to reach the 2% target.
