[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +29.30. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +56.00.
The S&P 500 futures trade 29 points, or 0.6%, above fair value amid positive momentum and continuing hope that Russia and Ukraine can reach a ceasefire soon.
Negotiators from both sides will resume peace talks in Turkey today, meeting face-to-face for the first time in over two weeks, according to Reuters. Ukraine is hopeful for a ceasefire, but U.S. officials continue to express their doubts about Russia's intentions.
Strikingly, the 2s10s spread in the Treasury market has now compressed to within ten basis points, stoking speculation of a recession down the road should there be an inversion. That hasn't bothered the futures market, though, which is appearing more optimistic about the near-term outlook.
The 2-yr yield is up ten basis points to 2.44%, and the 10-yr yield is up four basis points to 2.52%. The U.S. Dollar Index is down 0.3% to 98.78 amid relative strength in the euro, which is up 0.5% to 1.1039 amid hope for a ceasefire. WTI crude is down 0.2% to $105.71/bbl.
