  • US futures, European stocks rising as investors focus on the economy, ignoring potential policy changes
  • Treasury investors await clarity
  • Oil rebound continues

Key Events

US contracts on the Dow Jones, S&P 500, NASDAQ and Russell 2000 all jumped on Thursday, along with European stocks as traders decided to ignore the Fed's inflation debate—and what it might mean for monetary policy—opting instead to stick with the recovery narrative, ahead of a slew of US data, including GDP and Initial Claims, to be released later today.

Yields have been rising and oil climbed.

Global Financial Affairs

S&P 500 futures accelerated overnight, even after the underlying benchmark index fell during Wednesday's Wall Street session. But the contracts hit a snag toward the end of the Asian session, though they found new life with the European open, reaching their highest level since its June 14 record.

The futures completed a falling flag, bullish after the preceding sharp rise, having provided an upside breakout, a pattern retest, and a new high. The flag could provide the contract with sufficient momentum to strike a fresh record.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index rebounded from yesterday, lifted by banks and retail stocks, including automobile producers. The pan-European benchmark was unchanged earlier in the week as confused traders were looking for direction, not knowing what to make of the Fed’s mixed messages on inflation and its effect on the recovery.

Earlier this morning, the Asian session was listless as investors remained cautious ahead of today's US data. Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 and China’s Shanghai Composite treaded water. South Korea’s KOSPI and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng edged higher.

Australia’s ASX 200 was the only regional benchmark to finish in the red, -0.2%, pressured by a double-digit rise in COVID cases amid an outbreak of the delta strain, threatening renewed lockdowns.

Yields, including for the 10-year benchmark note, have been rising for four hours, completing a bullish pattern This not only reflected but threatens to move the trajectory of interest rates.

Rates have completed an hourly H&S continuation pattern, supporting the bottom of a larger bottom.

Now, the price is struggling against the bottom of a descending triangle, a pattern that demonstrates that Treasury demand is overtaking supply. A downside breakout for the Treasury yield would likely boost the sovereign bonds further, pushing the yields lower still.

The dollar is down for the day.

The USD might be producing an hourly H&S bottom, which would help it complete a falling flag, bullish after the preceding nearly 3% jump in a week.

Gold could be forming a rising flag, bearish after its 7.6% crash in a week.

The precious metal is nearing a long-term uptrend line, and might also be forming the right shoulder of a H&S—after having returned into its falling channel since the August record high.

Bitcoin retreated from a two day rebound.

The cryptocurrency is likely to meander as long as the inflation debate endures. We can see it ranging with a downward tilt, after having topped out. A fall below $29,000 will likely see a continued downtrend.

Oil climbed for the second day on shrinking US inventories, after the EIA released data showing last week saw the fifth week of drawdowns.

WTI has been struggling after clearing an Evening Star, as the price mostly actualized a bullish triangle’s implied target. Two catalysts continue to fuel this rally.

Up Ahead

Bank of England is scheduled to issue an interest rate decision Thursday.

Also on Thursday, the Fed releases the results of stress tests on the largest U.S. banks

U.S. Wholesale Inventories, Initial Jobless Claims, GDP and Durable Goods Orders also print on Thursday.

On Friday, U.S. personal income and spending, as well as University of Michigan consumer sentiment are announced.

From trillions overseas to newly minted trillions here enjoy the last bill market. It all ends badly UNLESS rates rise and fast. J Powell doesn't buy gasoline or food shop in NYC. I will say we have inflation and it's not transitory. Who knows how long this can continue but Hary Dent and Ray Dialio I believe in somewhat. Investing up here is loke walking on thin ice...you may make it or not. Stay off the ice

Pinchas, have you bought a sheet of plywood in the last twelve months? People are steeling it here in FL from job sites and even walking right out the door at home improvement stores. On the up side, I believe companies such as Cemex are going to climb. It is was it is and it is inflation. Signs are different this time from early 2000's where it was literally signs at every intersection that read "we buy foreclosure's". Now it is $400 sign on bonus at Circle K.

Install Expert  Nope, I haven't bought a sheet of plywood. However, as expensive as somethig is at any one point, it doesn't necessitate that the price will continue to be high in the long-term, especially considering the biggest economic disruption we just went through in our lifetimes, compounded by Fed market manipulation.

When amateur retail investors and pro investors simply ignore bad data and news over and over again like now has been happening for months, it's inevitable a big flash correction comes in some form and a lot of investors will be crushed for not being cautious, even a little bit, despite signs and warnings were there for months.
