25/01/23 Briefing

The S&P 500 futures are down 32 points and are trading 0.8% below fair value. The Nasdaq 100 futures are down 151 points and are trading 1.2% below fair value. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are down 213 points and are trading 0.6% below fair value.

Equity futures indicate a lower open primarily driven by renewed valuation concerns following Microsoft's (MSFT) disappointing cloud growth expectations and fiscal third quarter guidance. An earnings miss by fellow Dow component Boeing (BA) has added to the weakness and the sense that the market might have gotten ahead of itself with the January rally.

Treasury yields are moving lower, but that has not offered support to the equity market. The 2-yr note yield is down five basis points to 4.14% and the 10-yr note yield is down five basis points to 3.42%. The U.S. Dollar Index is up 0.1% to 102.01.

Energy complex futures trade in mixed fashion. WTI crude futures are flat at $80.14/bbl and natural gas futures are down 2.9% to $2.97/mmbtu.
