All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On May 28

Asian stocks and U.S. equity futures rose early Friday after solid U.S. economic data and President Joe Biden’s federal spending plans spurred a rally on Wall Street in cyclical shares.

Japan led gains, jumping more than 1%, with South Korea and Australia also up. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures advanced. The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, rose 0.25% to 15,453 as of 7:15 a.m.

The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield advanced past 1.61% amid the growth optimism and focus on debt supply risks to fund spending.

A gauge of the dollar was steady and the yen declined amid month-end rebalancing. The yuan is in focus after China’s central bank said the exchange rate can’t be used as a tool to spur exports or to offset the impact of commodity price surges.

Elsewhere, oil climbed to a more than two-year peak and the Bloomberg Commodity Spot Index rose the most in about two weeks. Bitcoin continued to trade below the $40,000 level.
