[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +2.00. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -28.00.
The S&P 500 futures trade roughly in-line with fair value, as investors await the January Consumer Price Index (CPI) at 8:30 a.m. ET and digest a big round of earnings news.
The Briefing.com consensus is projecting total CPI to have increased 0.5% month-over-month, leaving it up roughly 7.3% year-over-year and near a 40-year high. A hotter-than-expected report could fuel expectations for a 50-basis-point rate hike in March, which the CME FedWatch Tool currently has a 25.0% probability of happening.
The weekly Initial Claims (Briefing.com consensus 234,000) and Continuing Claims report will be released concurrently with the CPI report, followed by the January Treasury Budget at 2:00 p.m. ET.
In the meantime, investors have been busy reviewing better-than-expected earnings reports from the likes of Walt Disney (DIS 158.00, +10.77, +7.3%), Coca-Cola (KO 61.80, +0.76, +1.3%), Uber (UBER 42.50, +2.31, +5.8%), Twilio (TWLO 243.99, +41.98, +20.8%), and Mattel (MAT 25.26, +2.51, +11.0%).
The Treasury market, like the S&P 500 futures, are holding steady in front of the inflation data. The 2-yr yield is unchanged at 1.34%, and the 10-yr yield is unchanged at 1.93%. The U.S. Dollar Index is up 0.1% to 95.54. WTI crude futures remain elevated above $90 per barrel ($90.38, +0.72, +0.8%).
