Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Morning, Traders!
It is Tuesday the 21st of May, here are some things to look out for today.

Global shares fell on Tuesday as investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of Nvidia’s results and a spate of Federal Reserve governors’ speeches.

Investors were vigilant as commodities prices for gold, silver, and copper hovered near all-time highs.
So far, the commodities spike has failed to undermine expectations that inflation would continue to fall, allowing the Federal Reserve and other major central banks to slash interest rates this year.

The key focus for markets right now is Nvidia, which has driven a significant portion of the S&P 500’s recent results. Nvidia’s stock, which has increased by more than 90% this year, climbed 2.5% in New York on Monday, bringing the Nasdaq 100 index to another new high.
