[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +26.80. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +27.80.The S&P 500 futures trade 27 points, or 0.6%, above fair value as the market tries to recover from recent losses amid another round of mostly better-than-expected earnings reports. The Nasdaq 100 futures trade 0.2% above fair value after being up as much as 1.4% above fair value.

The Nasdaq futures have been pressured by an earnings miss from Alphabet (GOOG 2286.80, -103.32, -4.3%), which has investors bracing for disappointing results from Meta Platforms (FB 175.90, -5.05, -2.8%) after the close.

On the bright side, Microsoft (MSFT 280.80, +10.58, +3.9%), Visa (V 211.66, +10.56, +5.3%), and T-Mobile US (TMUS 127.27, +2.31, +1.9%) are up nicely in pre-market action after topping EPS estimates.

While earnings reports, as a whole, have been decent, the market is still grappling with growth concerns attributed to the Fed's tightening plans, China's COVID lockdowns, Russia's war in Ukraine, inflation, and supply chain disruptions. The downside volatility has kept investors on edge.

The Treasury market is relatively calm after two days of gains. The 2-yr yield is unchanged at 2.55%, and the 10-yr yield is unchanged at 2.77%. The U.S. Dollar Index is up 0.4% to 102.72. WTI crude futures are up 0.3% to $101.93/bbl.

On the data front, investors will receive Advance International Trade in Goods, Retail Inventories, and Wholesale Inventories for March at 8:30 a.m. ET, followed by Pending Home Sales for March ( consensus -1.5%) at 10:00 a.m. ET. The weekly MBA Mortgage Applications Index fell 8.3% following a 5.0% decline in the prior week.
