Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Morning, Traders!
It is Friday the 7th of June, the day of the much anticipated US Nonfarm Payrolls employment report.
Here are some things to look out for today.

A global equity rally faltered ahead of key US jobs data, which could cement bets on when the Federal Reserve will begin to ease monetary policy.

While traders were wary of placing large bets this morning, global stocks are poised to end a two-week losing streak.
Rate-cut expectations have risen in the last week, boosted by a slew of weaker-than-expected US data, as well as easing by the Bank of Canada and the European Central Bank.
