Here is what you need to know on Monday, September 27:
Yields are back on the agenda now as the market looks for something new to worry about. Despite a decent surge, the yield on the US 10-year remains a modest 1.5%, but markets are nervous and VIX refuses to back down. All this leads us to believe bears are finally on the prowl for some decent losses this time. Worries over Evergrande are still evident, but the Fed did its best to calm markets last week. A repeat performance may be necessary as a host of Fed speakers hit the wire this week. The just-released Durable Goods orders were surprisingly strong, so how will that be taken? A positive? Or another chance for yields to pop and equities to drop?
The dollar is certainly gearing itself up for higher rates with a move to a fresh $1.16 handle now versus the euro, at $1.1697. Oil is higher still at $75.41, and Gold is at $1,750. Bitcoin has steadied itself at $43,500, while VIX and yields remain stubbornly high at 19 and 1.51% now, respectively.
European markets are higher: FTSE flatt, Dax +0.3% and Eurostoxx +0.1%.
US futures are mixed: S&P -0.3%, Dow +0.1% and Nasdaq -0.9%.
