US Market View

U.S. stocks are seen opening marginally higher Friday, continuing the previous session’s rebound ahead of housing data and key business surveys. Despite gains, the Dow is on track to see its fourth negative week out of the past five weeks and the S&P 500 is on pace for its second negative week in a row. The Nasdaq Composite, on the other hand, is positioned to break a 4-week losing streak.

Friday’s data slate includes existing home sales for April at 10 AM ET, which are expected to show a slight improvement as the spring selling season gets going, as well as May PMI data, 15 minutes earlier. PMI releases from Europe earlier in the session showed the region’s services sector coming back to life as manufacturing cooled.

Investors have been fretting this week over the minutes from the April Federal Reserve meeting which showed that the FOMC members had started discussions about potentially tapering the central bank’s asset purchase programs.

The dollar traded lower in early European trade Friday, heading for a weekly loss as concerns eased over Federal Reserve members discussing potentially tapering back bond buying. The dollar has given back a bounce it made after a mention of possible future tapering discussions, in minutes from the Fed's April meeting, prompted fears of early rate rises. Data released on Thursday showed that U.S. initial claims fell to 444,000 over the past week, a new post-pandemic low, adding to evidence of a steady recovery in the labor market. That said, the number of continue claims, which are measured with a one-week time lag to initial ones, rose by over 100,000, suggesting the recovery still has some way to go.
