US Market View

U.S. stocks are seen opening lower Monday, with the highly valued tech sector likely hard hit as investors fret over higher Treasury yields and potential inflation in the wake of the Covid-19 relief bill passing through the Senate. Both Federal Reserve Chairman Powell and Treasury Secretary Yellen have downplayed the rise in long-term Treasury yields, saying they are a sign of expectations for a stronger recovery, not of increased inflation concerns.

President Joe Biden's passed $1.9 trillion covid relief plan on Saturday, one of the largest stimulus packages in U.S. history. The bill will now move to a vote in the House on Tuesday, and then to Biden, who hopes to sign the bill before enhanced jobless benefits expire on March 14. This followed Friday’s surge in US employment, and adds to fears that this package will overheat the economy, leading to inflation and to the Federal Reserve tightening policies more quickly than had previously been envisaged.

The price of oil spiked above $70 after Houthi rebels in Yemen launched a strike against various oil industry facilities in Saudi Arabia. The news reassured a market that is already at elevated levels, prices having hit their highest in over a year last week after OPEC and its allies surprisingly decided against a rise in output in April.

US Key Point

  • Oil turns to losses as early gains fizzle.
  • US equities look set for another bumpy day later.
  • BOE's Bailey supports that negative rates contingency planning implies nothing about our intentions in that direction.
  • AUD/USD nears the Friday low as dollar gains extend.
  • USD/JPY keeps more buoyed as Treasury yields hold higher so far on the day.
  • GBP/USD consolidates in a range below mid-1.3800s.
  • USD/CAD edges higher toward 1.2700 as WTI retreats from multi-year highs.
  • BoE's Bailey supports that we will see a rise in inflation in the short term.
