Markets are looking to rebound following the worst first half for stocks in 52 years. But inflation, the major culprit behind that weak performance in equities markets and other sectors, didn’t appear to be abating at any meaningful rate. Indeed, futures were down Friday morning, ahead of the long weekend, as investors gird for a potentially rocky earnings season. U.S. stock markets will be closed Monday for the Fourth of July.
U.S. 10-year Treasury yields fell to a near one-month low in early morning trading Friday, before recovering somewhat. Investors are weighing the potential for a recession. Bond traders will chew over more economic data Friday morning, with ISM manufacturing data and light vehicle sales for June, along with construction spending for May, set to be released at 10 a.m. ET.
Surging prices are taking their toll on other major economies as well. The European Central Bank on Friday said year-over-year inflation rose 8.6% in June. The ECB is expected to raise rates for the first time in 11 years later this month, and is projected to follow through with another increase in September. Earlier this week, ECB President Christine Lagarde said the central bank would move even faster if inflation didn’t improve, although she still expects growth. The ECB’s rates have been negative since 2014.
U.S. futures are lower, European stocks are mostly higher and Asian markets ended lower.
