US Market View

 U.S. stocks are seen opening higher Wednesday, continuing the recent rally, after it stalled during the previous session, ahead of more retail earnings. The data slate is largely empty Wednesday, but investors will keep close attention on a speech from Federal Reserve Vice Chair Randal Quarles on Wednesday as concerns surrounding inflation and potential tapering continue.

Crude oil prices edged lower Wednesday, despite strong U.S. crude supply data, as traders digest the possible return of Iranian exports.

Tuesday’s U.S. crude oil supply data from the API showed a draw of 439,000 barrels for the week ending May 21, suggesting an improvement in demand after the 620,000-barrel build recorded during the week before.

Federal Reserve officials have been out in force this week, pushing the mantra that the U.S. central bank is going to look through the rising inflationary pressures, keeping the accommodative policies on hold for the immediate future.

The latest to speak Wednesday is scheduled to be Federal Reserve Vice Chair for Supervision Randal Quarles.

The market still has concerns surrounding inflation and potential tapering, and it will be interesting to see whether Quarles has changed his stance after he outlined a very dovish view in late March. 

Inflation has become the dominant theme, after the recent sharp jump in consumer prices. Federal Reserve officials have made it clear that they see these rising inflationary pressures as temporary, and thus the central bank’s ultra-easy monetary policies will remain in place for some time to come.

Crude oil prices edged higher Wednesday, helped by strong U.S. crude supply data, although gains are small as traders digest the possible return of Iranian exports.
