US Market View
U.S. stocks are seen opening higher Friday, continuing to rebound after a difficult start to the week ahead of the release of key retail sales data. This week’s volatility has largely been as a result of a surge in inflation, with consumer pricing rising at the fastest rate since 2008 and producer prices posting the biggest gain in over a decade.
However, Federal Reserve officials have been at pains to state that the central bank’s accommodative monetary policies will not be changing any time soon. At the same time, the economic outlook is improving and the earnings season has been stronger than expected, suggesting more equity gains are possible.
Market nerves over inflation will be tested again by the release of U.S. retail sales data for April at 8:30 AM ET (1230 GMT), which are expected to slow markedly after household stimulus checks fueled a nationwide binge in spending in March.
Overall sales are expected to have risen 1.0% in the month, while core retail sales are expected to have risen 0.7%. Anything markedly stronger than that may revive concerns that the economy is already running too hot for comfort, despite largely soothing words from the Federal Reserve this week.
Oil prices rebounded Friday along with other risk assets as traders digested the return to operations of the largest fuel pipeline in the United States, the ongoing Covid-19 crisis in India, the third largest oil consumer in the world, and a broadly positive assessment of the outlook for demand growth from the International energy earlier in the week.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
