Let's get right over to Doug Kristen, Doug, the major benchmark appear to be somewhat stuck in the mud. How do you get out of the mud? I think you may have to wait for that CPI data here in the U.S. will get those numbers 8 30 a.m. tomorrow Wall Street time Bloomberg's survey is expecting the headline rate to come in at around 5%. Right now the market in Australia with that staggered opening is essentially flat, a little bit of weakness coming through for the nikkei were down about three tenths of 1%. The end showing some weakness of the end in New York trading was very little changed against the dollar essentially flat right now we're trading one 35 25 against the greenback and in Seoul right now the Cosby is down about three tenths of 1%. In addition to that critical report on U.S. retail inflation, this impasse over the debt ceiling in the U.S. seemed to weigh on sentiment just a bit. We drifted lower in the American session with the Dow the NASDAQ composite and the S&P 500 each down in the case of the NASDAQ comp off about 6 tenths of 1% today. Now we had the U.S. yields across the curve moving up just a bit to two year was up about two basis points. Here we are now at 4.04% and a ten year treasury at three 51, the dollar steady against the majors. In about 90 minutes from now we're going to get the opening of the market in Hong Kong and some reaction to a little bit of weakness that we saw in the NASDAQ golden dragon China index in the U.S. session. We were down more than 2.2%. Perhaps a reflection of that weak import data that we had yesterday for China, an unexpected decline by 7.9%. We'll take a closer look at market action for you in about 15 minutes Brian. Doug, I've been quoting the one month yield on the US Treasury and just dropped 6 basis points to 5.36%. A year ago today, it was at 49 basis points. 49 to 5 42 at the New York close. It shows you a lot of there is some angst being expressed about the debt ceiling discussions, particularly at the shortest of the ends. All right, let's take a look at the news flow here. The business news flow beneficials will have their eye on the key inflation data that Doug referenced a few moments ago. It comes out tomorrow morning, 8 30, Wall Street time, Bloomberg's Michael McKee with a preview. Higher interest rates have helped cut inflation in half over the past 9 months. Now economists say, for the hard part, rents and rising wages for hard to find employees, particularly in the service sector, will break progress towards the fed's goal of an average 2% inflation rate. The central bankers think progress will continue if slowly they will leave ray tied to ensure that happens and not worry too much about month to month inflation data, unless it unexpectedly jumps. The question is, what will investors think? Will they have the patience of fed officials or will we see a big rate reaction to the inflation data? Michael McKee Bloomberg daybreak Asia. Retail inflation is one of several issues that the fed is monitoring. New York president John Williams said that he's looking at strains in the banking sector and he also left open the possibility of leaving interest rates on hold next month. Here's William speaking at an event with the economic club of New York. I will be particularly focused on assessing the evolution of credit conditions and their effects on the outlook for growth, employment and inflation. We're going to get a lot of data between now and our June meeting. Williams also said that a rate cut is not his baseline forecast for this year. Last week, the fed hiked its key rate by a quarter percentage point and brought the target on the benchmark rate above 5%. It was then that chair Jay Powell hinted it could be the last increase for the time being. However, he did leave the door open for the fed to do more if inflation remains high. The fed meets next on June 13th and 14th. In some earnings news, here in the Asia Pacific, South Korea's ecommerce giant coupon, as reported sales that beat estimates in the March quarter. The story from Bloomberg's Joanne Wong in Hong Kong. Revenue rose 13% to $5.8 billion, exceeding the estimate of 5.6 billion operating profits was more than a $106 million and active customer grew 5% to 19 million. That's as a company's core delivery business grew exponentially during the pandemic. Coupon also managed to sustain growth in a post pandemic period. That's in part thanks to its fast delivery service, known for promises of Don delivery. Cooper's reportedly looking to expand market share among new initiatives, it's expanding its delivery business in Taiwan and Hong Kong Joan Wong Bloomberg de briga. 6 minutes past the hour let's get to global news. While the big story today, the summit on the debt ceiling ending apparently with no agreement and no movement had Baxter has the story and the rest of the news from the 9 60 newsroom in San Francisco Ed. All right Brian, House speaker Kevin McCarthy said he saw little movement. I would hope that he would be willing to negotiate for the next two weeks. So we could actually solve this problem and not take America on the brink. And now Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell says the government will not default. The United States is not going to default. It never has. And it never will. Yeah, and Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer majority leader says the GOP still holding the country hostage. Do you the risk of default? With all the dangers that has for the American people as a hostage and say it's my way or no way, or mostly my way or no way. It's dangerous. And now president Joe Biden says any threat of default has to be removed. He says the budget has already submitted, well, he said it already has cuts in it. I made it clear that we can cut spending and cut the deficit. For example, my budget cuts $200 billion in spending by strengthening Medicare's power to negotiate for lower prescription drug prices. In addition, that's on top of the $160 billion in budget savings. We pass last year by being able to reduce the price of insulin and other drugs for those on Medicare. So they will meet again on Friday and preparation staffs are supposedly meeting tonight. George Santos

"Say banking meanwhile the first phase of the mariupol evacuation is complete all women children and elderly are out U.S. House speaker Nancy Pelosi says the $33 billion Ukraine aid package has to be passed She says it will be but has stopped short of making any time table Meanwhile Lockheed Martin is working to almost double its production capacity for javelin missiles to 4000 a year CEO Jim to clutch says even if the war in Ukraine ends tomorrow there will be need We know that there's going to be increased demand for those kinds of equipment too because the threat between Russia and China is just going to increase even after the Ukraine war He says throughout the Asia Pacific South Korea reporting out North Korea appeared to have fired a submarine launch ballistic missile over the weekend to no one's surprise Hong Kong elections have confirmed that China backed John Lee will be the next executive secretary Lee then spoke and said his job calls for accountability to both Beijing and the city And doctor Anthony Fauci made a commencement address at the University of Michigan over the weekend telling graduates to fight a stamp out lies and miss information Lies become dominant and reality is distorted And then truth means nothing Integrity means nothing Facts mean nothing Fauci says more and more members of society have grown immune to the spread of untruths He calls it the normalization of untruths In San Francisco I met Baxter this is Bloomberg all right Brian All right thanks for Mitch 8 minutes past the hour as mentioned we have Katrina Elle with a senior economist at moody's analytics So a lot of conditions here a lot of the backdrop is negative really for equity and even bond investors and we have a treasury We have a bear market in treasuries now and in many parts of the equity complex Do you see anything that changes this in the short term Katrina Yeah I mean I think you really hit it on the head and that there is so many there's so much downside risks and so many adverse economic conditions at the moment that are really hitting financial market sentiment And I think near term that pressure is really going to remain I mean just looking at Asia Pacific China's zero COVID policy is a huge having a huge and deep economic impact and it's really putting a cap on China's economic recovery and we've seen the most recent data coming out of China being incredibly weak and until that zero COVID policy is those headwinds are going to remain and really remain at a significant hit to global growth and also regional growth right now That's it isn't it ultimately Katrina isn't it Because it's not just about China is it And it's also about the second round effects of these supply bottlenecks we saw last year coming back and perhaps coming back arguably in a more insidious manner Yeah exactly right This year was supposed to be the year that economic conditions improved because the pandemic wasn't going to be such a cap on growth because we were seeing most countries and most policymakers rather really embracing endemic living whereas China is really doubling down on their commitment to maintain their zero COVID policy and what that means is that the supply chain disruptions and the supply chain stress is really hanging around much more than what we expected And then overlaid by that is of course Russia's invasion of Ukraine which is also having significant and severe impacts on supply chains as well Well at some point big institutions react Saudi for instance lowering prices for oil to Asia We may see at some point central banks pull back on the brakes a little bit Was there anything in the jobs report that gives you a really strong conviction or was it just too mixed Yeah I mean overall what the key takeaway from the jobs report would be for the U.S. was that the labor market is still tight in America And so really does necessitate that ongoing monetary tightening continuing in addition to obviously their inflation being about that 40 year high So what we really need to see going forward is and what would be a good forward indicator of whether central banks can pull back a little bit would be whether we start to see some easing off in inflation expectations.
