Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Morning, Traders!
It is Wednesday the 5th of June, as US employment report week continues, and the Bank of Canada announces the result of its latest policy meeting.
Here are some things to look out for today.

Stocks rose slightly this morning on speculation that a cooling economy would allow the Federal Reserve to lower interest rates this year. Treasuries halted a rally that had resulted in the largest two-day drop in yields this year.

Markets are shifting their focus to a slew of labor-market readings this week, including Friday’s US jobs report, for more clues on when the Fed will cut interest rates.
Private payroll figures and the most recent reading on the US services sector are scheduled for release today.
