All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On June 2

Asian stocks made a steady start Wednesday after U.S. equities inched lower as the tussle between economic optimism and inflation concern continues to play out in markets.

Japanese stocks fluctuated while Australia and South Korea posted modest gains. U.S. equity contracts were flat after the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 closed with small losses.

The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, was little changed at 15,628 as of 7 a.m.

Oil rose to a more than two-year peak, with the OPEC+ alliance forecasting a tightening global crude market and a nuclear deal with Iran still up in the air.

The dollar was steady in Asian trading. The lira fell to another record low against the greenback after Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan renewed calls for lower interest rates. The offshore yuan was little changed amid a push by the People’s Bank of China to temper its appreciation.

Meanwhile, Monetary Policy Committee starts meeting today and the decision to be announced on June 4.
