TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
economic calendar broken up by July 4th holiday tomorrow, the market will be all eyes on the ADP and ISM Services due later today. Although Friday’s NFPs will be the marquee event of the week, today’s releases will give a good glimpse at the state of labor demand and services activity in the U.S.
Credit markets have been very bearish in their assessment of U.S. growth with the 10Y yield slipping below the psychologically important 2% level yesterday to hit a low of 1.94% today. Therefore, the conditions are ripe for a short squeeze in rates if U.S. data proves to be relatively resilient. The markets are looking for a rebound to 140K in ADP from 27K previous which could temper the dramatic rate cut expectations currently priced in.
