The overall market is currently experiencing normal macro volatility.

Some of the largest moves in the market today include: Copper has experienced a move of -2.1%. Bitcoin has experienced a move of -1.9%.

The HCOB Germany Services PMI fell to 53.5 in June, indicating a slowdown but still strong growth driven by new business from abroad and job creation despite slower hiring; services inflation remained high. The Manufacturing PMI dropped sharply to 43.4, pointing to significant contraction with declining production and export sales alongside continued employment shrinkage. Consequently, the Composite PMI decreased to 50.6 due to weak manufacturing offsetting robust service sector performance.

European stocks traded lower on disappointing private activity data while regional bond yields declined amid poor PMIs for France, Germany, and the Eurozone reported on June 21st; crude oil futures stayed above $81 per barrel as gold rose over $2,375 with U.S Treasury yields slightly downwards influenced by these developments.

In Asia-Pacific regions like Hong Kong and South Korea saw declines following Wall Street’s lackluster overnight performance coupled with weak domestic economic reports impacting investor sentiment negatively across major Asian indices except Australia which bucked this downward trend.

AI-generated summaries of notable ETF and macro asset moves:

IBB [+1.4%]
The iShares Biotechnology ETF experienced significant movements in its holdings, with top contributors including SRPT, GILD, AMGN, ARGX, and VRTX. Sarepta Therapeutics received FDA approval for Elevidys in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy leading to a surge in stock price while Gilead Sciences saw an increase after positive Phase 3 trial results of lenacapavir for HIV prevention injection.

EWU [-0.9%]
The iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF likely decreased due to U.K. private sector growth easing, with service sector slowing offsetting stronger manufacturing performance in June. Weaker-than-expected retail sales data for May and a slight slowdown in business activity across sectors within the UK may have influenced market sentiment around EWU. The negative movement aligns with the broader trend seen in the S&P 500 Index declining slightly during this period, indicating a potential impact of global investor sentiment on various regions and sectors simultaneously.
