- Wall Street extends bullish momentum despite weaker macro data
- US labor market remains strong
- C3.ai plummets after new revenue forecasts
- The House passed debt-limit legislation
S&P 500 futures showed minimal movement following the passage of debt-limit legislation in the House, a collaborative effort between President Joe Biden and Speaker Kevin McCarthy. The legislation aims to control government spending until the 2024 election and prevent a disruptive default by the United States. Traders are eagerly anticipating the resolution of the debt ceiling case and the release of the US Non-Farm Payrolls report tomorrow, as these events have the potential to influence the Federal Reserve's interest rate decision for June.
In May, private payrolls exceeded economists' projections, with ADP reporting a growth of 278k jobs compared to the estimated 180,000. Moreover, the number of jobless claims filed last week was lower than expected. These positive indicators highlight the continued robustness of the labor market, a key area of the economy. However, there are concerns that this sustained strength could lead the Federal Reserve to contemplate another interest rate hike at its upcoming policy meeting later this month.
