The overall market is currently experiencing high macro volatility.

Some of the largest moves in the market today include: Bitcoin has experienced a move of -2.8%. US 10Y Treasury has experienced a move of -0.5%. Ethereum has experienced a move of -2.5%.

The market is currently being influenced by several key events. First, the the U.S. nonfarm payrolls report came in stronger than expected at 303K with implications for Fed policy.

Second, geopolitical tensions between Iran and Israel have escalated following attacks that may lead to broader conflict in the Middle East—this has caused crude oil prices to surge due to potential supply disruptions.

Lastly, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s visit to China aims at easing economic tensions and addressing concerns over excess manufacturing capacity—a topic closely watched given its implications for global trade relations. These stories represent significant developments likely impacting currency markets through shifts in risk sentiment and influencing commodity prices amid heightened geopolitical risks.

USO $82.48 +0.3%
Oil prices surged on geopolitical tensions and supply concerns, driving Brent crude above $90 per barrel. Escalating conflicts in the Middle East between Israel and Iran threaten disruptions while Ukrainian drone attacks on Russian refineries impact fuel output. Optimism about global demand growth amid economic recovery further boosted oil prices. Traders eye a gap fill towards $92 for United States Oil Fund LP ($USO) based on social media chatter indicating rising interest despite technical issues hindering access to details.

IEF $93.20 -0.6%
The iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF may have been influenced by a strong employment report and cautious Fed comments on rate cuts. Global geopolitical tensions are impacting investor sentiment, while correlations with US 2Y Treasuries suggest shorter-term movements can affect longer-duration bond ETFs like IEF.

APO [+2.4%] Apollo Global Management Inc’s stock experienced a positive movement after Deutsche Bank raised the price target to $123 with a Buy rating, showing confidence in Apollo’s performance. Ongoing merger talks involving MidCap Financial Investment Corporation and two other funds related to Apollo hint at strategic expansion efforts by the company. Additionally, it appears that Apollo is outperforming its sector peers and leading the sector since the previous close. 

HUBS [+2.1%] Alphabet considering acquiring HubSpot and Canaccord Genuity raising the price target to $750 reflect positive market sentiment towards HubSpot Inc. Analyst recommendations highlight growth potential, making it an attractive investment opportunity. Market factors show HUBS moving more than its Information Technology sector peers on various macro events like Non Farm Payrolls and Unemployment Rate. Overall, recent stock increase aligns with upbeat company-specific news and industry dynamics.

ENPH [-3.5%] Enphase Energy Inc’s Chief Commercial Officer, David Ranhoff, will step down for personal reasons effective June 30. Two senior vice presidents will take over his position. This leadership change coincides with a stock downgrade to Neutral by Citi due to slow inventory reduction and underperformance compared to sector peers since the previous close.

BK [+0.7%] Deutsche Bank raised the price target on Bank of New York Mellon to $59 while maintaining a Hold rating. This positive sentiment from an analyst can influence investor perception and potentially contribute to the stock’s recent movement upwards, coinciding with outperformance compared to the S&P 500 Index over this period.

CTAS [+1.0%] Cintas Corp’s stock price moved alongside significant macro events such as the United States Unemployment Rate, Non Farm Payrolls, Average Hourly Earnings YoY and MoM, Participation Rate, and Government Payrolls. These events typically impact CTAS more than its sector Industrials.
