All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On July 14

Asian stocks were mixed early Wednesday after Wall Street fell from a record and bond yields rose following a surprise U.S. inflation jump that stirred the debate on how long Federal Reserve policy can stay ultra-loose.

Shares fluctuated in Japan, dipped in South Korea and were steady in Australia. The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, fell 0.24% at 15,796.50 as of 6:50 a.m.

U.S. futures were little changed after the S&P 500 slipped for the first time in three trading sessions while the Nasdaq 100 ended little changed. Traders are digesting a release showing the highest U.S. inflation since 2008 as well as mixed earnings from JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

Investors are also monitoring the spread of the more contagious delta variant of Covid-19, which is hampering the recovery from the pandemic in some parts of the world. The unfolding earnings season is key too, with global stocks close to record highs on optimism over the bounce back from the health crisis.

Oil edged lower after touching the highest price in more than 2 1/2 years. The prospect of an imminent flood of crude exports from Iran and other major producers has waned, and the International Energy Agency has warned of a deepening supply crunch.
