US Market View
U.S. stocks are seen opening marginally higher Friday, remaining near record levels, with investors seemingly unconcerned about soaring inflation ahead of next week’s Federal Reserve meeting. Investors appear to have looked through this release, as the makeup of the index supported Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's repeated assertion that higher inflation will be transitory. Global equity funds faced big outflows in the week to June 9, as investors were wary ahead of U.S. inflation data, spooked by worries that an upside surprise could prompt the Federal Reserve to start tapering its massive stimulus.
At the same time the recovery in the labor market continued as the number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell to the lowest level in nearly 15 months. European shares scaled their latest record high and bond yields fell from the United States to the euro zone on Friday as investors shrugged off rising U.S. consumer prices and welcomed signs central banks will stick to loose policy, despite lingering concerns about longer-term inflation.
The U.S. consumer price index posted on Thursday its biggest year-on-year gain since August 2008 of 5%, following a 4.2% rise in April. Hefty contributions from short-term rises in airline ticket prices and used cars cast doubts on underlying inflationary pressures. The rise in the U.S. consumer price index reflected short-term adjustments related to the reopening of the economy, some economists say. As such, many investors are confident the Federal Reserve is deftly handling a rebound in economic growth - though its definition of "transitory" remains unclear.
Oil prices rose on Friday to fresh multi-year highs and were set for their third weekly jump on expectations of a recovery in fuel demand in the United States, Europe and China as rising vaccination rates lead to an easing of pandemic curbs.

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
