All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On July 1

Asian stocks were mixed Thursday amid a firmer dollar as traders weighed concerns about the more contagious delta strain of Covid-19 and looked ahead to a U.S. payrolls report.

Shares fluctuated in Japan and Australia and edged lower in South Korea. While the S&P 500 eked out an overnight gain, rounding out one of the best first halves since 1998 for U.S. stocks, the recent spread of the virus variant is tempering some of the optimism around the global recovery. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 contracts were slightly higher.

The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, was little changed at 15,754 as of 7 a.m.

The dollar held an advance after completing its best month since March 2020 and Treasuries were steady. U.S. data showed surprise strength in pending home sales and an ongoing labour market recovery. The payrolls report due Friday will provide a key gauge of economic progress, helping to shape expectations of when the Federal Reserve might start tapering stimulus.

Elsewhere, oil retained a climb ahead of a meeting between OPEC+ producers on output policy and as a stalemate in Iranian nuclear talks drags on.
