All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On May 14

Asia stocks climbed after U.S. benchmarks halted a three-day slide, with investors migrating to value from growth companies as signs of a strengthening labour market tempered inflation worries.

Indices in South Korea, Australia and Japan also gained for the first time in four sessions. The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, rose 1.2% to 14,683.50 as of 7:10 a.m.

Investors will be watching China’s open after MSCI Inc.’s index covering the country’s stocks fell into bear-market territory.

U.S. futures edged higher, following gains in the major benchmarks. Industrial and financial shares outperformed overnight, while energy producers joined a slump in oil.

Bitcoin pared some of the losses sparked by Musk’s comments, trading around $50,000

Treasuries rallied from the prior session’s weakness, with the 10-year yield easing to 1.66% despite a lacklustre auction of 30-year bonds. The Federal Reserve tweaked its purchasing plan to focus more on longer-dated Treasuries, while leaving the $80 billion monthly total unchanged.

Meanwhile, concerns about a possible pullback in Fed support have stalled the rally in commodities. Oil slumped the most in over a month as growing inflation concerns raise the spectre of a less accommodative central bank.
