The overall market is currently experiencing normal macro volatility.

Some of the largest moves in the market today include: Nasdaq 100 Index (US) has experienced a move of +0.6%. Oil (WTI) has experienced a move of +1.2%. Gold has experienced a move of +0.5%.

US private businesses added 152K workers in May, below forecasts of 175K and down from April’s revised 188K, indicating slowing job gains and pay growth. Mortgage applications fell by 5.2% last week amid concerns over persistently high mortgage rates above the 7% threshold for nearly two months; refinancing applications dropped by another significant margin while new home purchase applications also declined.

Recent market movements are primarily driven by anticipation of key economic data releases and central bank policy decisions with US labor market data expected to significantly influence trading sentiment as investors look for clues on future Federal Reserve actions.

In Europe, final readings on Services PMIs and Eurozone PPI reports did not cause major shifts but attention remains focused on broader inflation trends within the region.

Unexpected election results in India caused a notable drop in the Nifty 50 index despite an overall positive growth outlook amidst political uncertainty.

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

USD/MXN [-1.0%] The Mexican Peso (MXN) may be moving due to the Finance Minister’s intervention to prevent further depreciation following election-related declines, reassuring investors about fiscal discipline and investment continuity. Additionally, market sentiment towards risk influences MXN performance during periods of turbulence or stability. Economic data showing unexpected slowdowns in Gross Fixed Investment post-election could also impact MXN valuation as it reflects potential legislative changes that might affect the economy negatively. Analysis of global currency returns, points to MXN movement as the main driver of the cross.

USD/JPY [+0.6%] The USD/JPY asset may be moving due to falling U.S. government debt rates signaling slowing economic activity, potential interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve later in the year, mixed Asian market performance with Japan’s Nikkei down on strong wage data fears, and expectations of a hawkish ECB interest-rate cut at its upcoming meeting. Additionally, anticipation surrounding key economic reports like private sector employment data and service sector activity could impact trading sentiment for this currency pair as well. Analysis of global currency returns points to JPY movement as the main driver of the cross.

Additionally, HDFC Bank Ltd appears to be outperforming its sector peers post-previous close along with the broader market movement.

GME [+0.8%] GameStop Corp is set to announce Q1 FY2024 earnings, with estimates showing improvement from the previous quarter.
