Treasury yields are roughly 2 bps higher across the curve following solid data out of Europe and after OPEC showed little desire to boost production after prodding from President Trump. US equity futures are pointing to a lower open after China canceled trade talks with American officials in response to new tariffs. The market will be focused on the Fed’s FOMC meeting this Wednesday with the Fed expected to raise rates another 25 bps.
