All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On June 18

Asian stocks opened on a mixed footing Friday after U.S. technology shares rallied and Treasuries advanced, with investors unwinding some of this year’s dominant reflation trades.

Equities opened in the green in South Korea and Australia, while Japanese shares slipped. The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, rose 0.42% at 15,758 as of 7:15 a.m.

U.S. futures were little changed after a fresh bout of rotation from cyclical stocks pushed the tech-heavy Nasdaq gauge to another record. The benchmark S&P 500 ended the U.S. session flat.

Treasury yields steadied from a tumble amid speculation investors were unwinding bets on a steeper curve, after Federal Reserve officials signaled monetary-policy tightening could start sooner than previously thought, helping to rein in the risk that inflation might get out of hand.

The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index steadied after a fifth day of gains, the longest winning streak since March 2020. Its advance makes commodities that are priced in greenback more expensive, driving declines across the complex. Copper is headed for its worst week since the start of the pandemic and oil fluctuated Friday.
