US Market View
U.S. stocks are set to open marginally lower Monday, consolidating near record levels after another positive week. G-7 deal on corporate taxation, Janet Yellen’s view on higher inflation and interest rates, Wall Street edging lower, lower crude prices and hot housing markets. Here's what's moving markets on Monday, June 7th. The Group of Seven advanced nations agreed over the weekend on a minimum global corporate tax of at least 15% as part of a broader deal on how to tax multinational companies such as Amazon. According to the communique after the London meeting, countries where big firms operate would get the right to tax “at least 20%” of profits exceeding a 10% margin. That would apply to “the largest and most profitable multinational enterprises.”
However, these multinational companies are unlikely to take major hits to their stock prices Monday as there are many hurdles still to be climbed before this accord comes into effect.
Focus will now shift to a July meeting of the Group of 20 finance ministers in Italy, as well as long-running talks between about 140 countries at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
The market focused last week on the U.S. labor market - this week it’s the turn of inflation to take the spotlight. All eyes will be on the May CPI due for release on Thursday, after a much stronger than expected inflation number sparked a selloff last month, as many worried rising price pressures could force the Fed to begin unwinding stimulus earlier than they had previously guided.
The annual CPI figure climbed to 4.2% in April, the sharpest climb since September 2008, as the U.S. economic recovery kicked into gear and energy prices jumped higher. May’s release is expected to show another substantial increase, up 4.7% on the year.One of the earliest beneficiaries of the Covid-19 outbreak was the U.S. housing market. Limited inventories, low interest rates and bidding wars quickly drove prices sky-high.
By some measures, the market is even hotter than it was during the peak prior to the financial crisis, to the extent that some homeowners are now becoming reluctant to sell for fear of getting involved in a bidding war for a replacement, limiting the available stock even more.
Crude oil prices weakened Monday, slipping from fresh multi-year highs as traders banked profits ahead of the restart of talks between Iran and world powers later in the week over a nuclear deal.

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
