15/11/22 Briefing


The S&P 500 futures are up 40 points and are trading 1.0% above fair value. The Nasdaq 100 futures are up 180 points and are trading 1.6% above fair value. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are up points and are trading 0.6% above fair value.

Equity futures are moving higher this morning as market participants react to positive earnings news from Dow component Walmart (WMT) and a further drop in Treasury yields.

The BofA Fund Manager Survey reflected an elevated cash position (6.2%), which is seen as a contrarian indicator that is encouraging buying interest.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index increased 4.1% after China reported weaker than expected economic data, including retail sales and industrial production. The takeaway for market participants is that China may be apt to step in with more stimulus or back down from the zero-covid policy.

Treasury yields are moving lower. The 2-yr note yield is down five basis points to 4.35% and the 10-yr note yield is down six basis points to 3.81%.
