Equity futures are mixed ahead of the latest inflation reading this morning, the August PCE Price Index, out at 8:30 a.m. ET. A slight drop in Treasury yields is providing a modicum of support. The 10-yr note yield is down six basis points to 3.69% and the 2-yr note yield is down two basis points to 4.15%. 

Global recession/inflation worries are in play this morning after the Eurozone CPI showed a record 10.0% increase year-over-year in September versus 9.1% in August. The latest reading is solidifying expectations that the ECB will raise rates by 75 basis points at its October meeting. The Reserve Bank of India voted 5-to-1 to raise its repo rate by 50 basis points to 5.90%, as expected.

In other central bank news, San Francisco Fed President Daly (non FOMC voter) said that the Fed needs to slow the U.S. economy to bring down inflation but does not need to trigger a recession, according to Reuters. She thinks getting to 4.50%-5.0% and holding there through the end of 2023 could get inflation in check.

Separately, Russian President Putin will formally annex 18% of Ukraine today, according to CNN.

Hurricane Ian is expected to make a second landfall in South Carolina later today.
