27.76 last Wednesday Fed lows next major level if the weakness continues Positive bias ahead of the open 23-Jun-22 08:01 ET Market is Closed [BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +24.00. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +81.20.The S&P 500 futures are up 28 points and are trading 0.6% above fair value. The Nasdaq 100 futures are up 114 points and are trading 0.7% above fair value. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are up 163 points and are trading 0.6% above fair value. There isn't any specific news to account for the upward bias in the futures market. To be fair, there has been good news. Darden Restaurants (DRI) and KB Home (KBH) posted better-than-expected earnings results, yet they don't have the market-cap weight to move the market. Accordingly, there is a prevailing sense that the market is still entertaining the prospect of rebounding from deeply oversold conditions as we move closer to quarter end. The drop in long-term rates seems to be helping the effort. The 10-yr note yield, which scraped 3.50% on June 14, moved to 3.09% overnight. It is currently down two basis points at 3.13%. The downshift there has been linked to concerns about growth slowing appreciably due to aggressive rate hikes by central banks. The Norges Bank is part of that contingent, having raised its key lending rate by 50 basis points to 1.25%, versus an expectation for 25 basis points. That move followed Fed Chair Powell's contention yesterday that it will be challenging to achieve a soft landing, and it has been joined by reports this morning highlighting weaker-than-expected flash PMI readings for the eurozone, Germany triggering the alert level of its emergency gas plan, and Russia making inroads in taking over the Luhansk Province. Fed Chair Powell will be back on Capitol Hill, appearing at 10:00 a.m. ET before the House Financial Services Committee for day two of his Semiannual Monetary Policy Report. In corporate news:
