US Equity Futures Rise As First Half Nears End

June 30, 2021 3:42 AM (Eastern Standard Time)

US equity futures rose on the last day of the second quarter, suggesting that the Nasdaq Composite and the S & P 500 could set new records.

S & P 500 futures rose 0.1% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average futures rose 0.1%. Nasdaq 100 futures have been added 0.2%. Changes in futures do not necessarily predict what will happen after the market opens.

In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 fell less than 0.1% in the morning trading. This is because profits in the materials and information technology sector were constrained by losses in the utilities and energy sectors.

In commodities, international benchmark Brent crude rose 0.2% to $ 74.40 a barrel. Gold fell 0.3% to $ 1,758.20 per troy ounce.

German 10-year bond yields rose to minus 0.165% and UK 10-year bond yields fell to 0.742%. Yields on 10-year Treasuries rose from 1.479% to 1.481%. Bond prices and yields move in opposite directions.

In Asia, the index was mixed as China’s benchmark Shanghai Composite Index rose 0.5%, but Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index fell 0.4% and Japan’s Nikkei 225 Index fell 0.6% during the session. It fell by 0.1%.
