US Market View

U.S. stock markets are set to open mostly higher after a mixed day on Wednesday on which tech underperformed value stocks. It’s a data-driven day in the U.S., with retail sales and industrian production data for March due, as well as the weekly update on jobless claims. Industrial production, due 45 minutes later, is expected to have rebounded 2.8% after a 2.2% drop in February, when a week-long cold snap across much of the south paralyzed the energy complex and a suite of energy-intensive industries.

initial job claims, which rose to 744,000 in last week’s release, are expected to have fallen to 700,000, a number that would still reflect a high continuing rate of layoffs in the economy, over a year after the start of the pandemic. 

 The Russian ruble fell as much as 2% and the country’s stock market fell 2.4% in response to news that the U.S. will introduce new sanctions on the country due to its involvement in the SolarWinds hack and in past election interference.

Crude oil prices retreated overnight after making substantial gains in response to a faster-than-expected draw on US crude stockpiles last week.The drop in inventories reported by the Energy Information Administration was nearly twice was was expected. Crude prices hit their highest in nearly a month in response, already supported by two upgrades to world oil demand this week from OPEC and the International Energy Agency.
