June 16, 2021 3:41 am (Eastern Standard Time)

US equity futures shook near the flat line prior to the Federal Reserve Board’s policy decisions.

Futures on the S & P 500 remained unchanged, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average futures down 0.1%. The contract does not necessarily predict what will happen after the opening bell.

In Europe, Stocks Europe 600 is up 0.3% in the morning trading, the highest level in the year. The financial and healthcare sectors have driven profits, and the consumer staple and telecommunications services sector has declined.

Father Colruyt NV decreased by 8%, decreasing four times in a row.

The UK FTSE 100 rose 0.4%. France’s CAC 40 rose 0.3%, the UK’s FTSE 250 rose 0.5%, and Germany’s DAX rose 0.1%, so other European stock indexes also rose nearly.

The pound sterling rose 0.2% against the US dollar and the pound bought $ 1.41 while the Swiss franc and euro traded flat against the dollar.

In commodities, Brent crude was up 0.5% to $ 74.38 a barrel. Gold was also up 0.2% to $ 1,859.70.

Yields on German 10-year bonds fell to minus 0.233%, and 10-year UK government debt, known as gilt yields, was up to 0.768%. The US Treasury’s 10-year yield rose from 1.448% to 1.500%. Yields are inversely proportional to bond prices.

The Asian index fell most of the time as Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index fell 0.4%, Japan’s Nikkei 225 Index fell 0.5%, and China’s benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell 1.1%.

The trader worked on the New York Stock Exchange floor on Monday.
