09/05/23 Briefing

Updated: May 10, 2023

The S&P 500 futures are down 15 points and are trading 0.4% below fair value. The Nasdaq 100 futures are down 66 points and are trading 0.5% below fair value. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are down 125 points and are trading 0.4% below fair value.

The stock market is poised for a lower open after yesterday's flattish finish. Continued softness in regional bank stocks coupled with nervousness about the debt ceiling have contributed to the negative bias this morning. This comes ahead of President Biden's meeting with Congressional leaders about the debt ceiling today at 4:00 p.m. ET. JP Morgan (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon warned that a Congressional mistake could result in default, according to CNBC.

Market participants are also digesting some tepid trade data out of China. The trade surplus rose to $90.21 billion in April (expected surplus of $71.60 bln; prior surplus of $88.19 bln) with imports falling 7.9% year/year (expected -5.0%; prior -1.4%) while exports rose 8.5% (expected 8.0%; last 14.8%).

Treasury yields are little changed from yesterday's settlement levels. The 2-yr note yield is unchanged at 3.99% and the 10-yr note yield is down three basis points to 3.49%. The U.S. Dollar Index is up 0.3% to 101.66.

Energy complex futures are giving back some of yesterday's gains. WTI crude oil futures are down 1.1% to $72.31/bbl and natural gas futures are down 0.8% to $2.40/mmbtu.
