Market Update – June 1st -Stocks higher after bill vote.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Yesterday’s dovish Fedspeak, a mixed Beige Book, a weak Chicago PMI, and easing concerns over a default supported yields. Month-end demand and a little risk aversion underpinned too. The market also continued to correct from some of the heavy losses since May 11 resulting from hotter data that opened the door for a June rate hike. Implied Fed funds futures dive and Treasury yields have followed suit after Fed Governor Jefferson touted skipping a June hike in order to see more data. The June implied rate has fallen to 5.198% and July has downshifted to 5.288%.

Today, Stocks edged higher after the House voted 314-117 on Wednesday in favour of a bill to raise the US debt ceiling. The bill will pass through the Senate next. German retail sales rose 0.8% m/m in April & UK house prices fell 0.1% in May as rate concerns persist.

*Stocks – US100 was down -0.63% and the US500 off -0.61%, unwinding some of the enthusiasm from Nvidia. The US30 slid -0.41%.

*Commodities – USOil remained under pressure below $69 after weaker than expected official PMI reports for China added to growth concerns and weighed on the demand outlook. Comments from Russian officials damped speculation that OPEC+ could announce deeper output cuts at the June 4 meeting.
