July 27, 2022 Headlines

The flattening trend in the Treasury market continues this morning ahead of this afternoon’s FOMC meeting. Front-end yields are little changed, while long-end yields are down 2-4 basis points. The tech sector is leading a rally in U.S. equity futures ahead of the open following better than expected earnings reports and guidance from tech giants like Alphabet, Microsoft, and Texas Instruments. NASDAQ futures are up 1.5% (8:58am ET), and S&P 500 futures are up 0.91%. For today’s FOMC meeting, there isn’t expected to be a surprise regarding the size of the rate hike (75 bps), but any guidance for the rest of the year will be more closely scrutinized. The fed funds futures market is currently priced for close to a 50 bps hike at the September meeting (~3% funds rate).
