Tech Stocks Fall Along with Treasuries; Bitcoin Rebounded

The Market opened today's session with treasuries lower across all maturities. The 10-year Treasury yield is currently at 1.5721, 1.87 bps higher than prior closing of 1.5534.

US stocks fluctuated and Treasury yields rose as investors weighed inflation risks and the potential impact of a minimum corporate tax. The S&P 500 Index fell 0.1% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 Index fell 0.2%, with losses in megacap tech stocks such as Apple, Amazon, and Facebook. Biogen rallied as the Food and Drug Administration was set to decide on Monday if its Alzheimer’s drug will be approved. Tesla fell after Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk tweeted on Sunday the Model S Plaid Plus is officially canceled. Bitcoin rebounded above $36,000 after a volatile  weekend amid a cryptocurrency crackdown in China. Underperformance by the tech-heavy Nasdaq suggested investors were looking beyond pure growth narratives to sustain gains. European stocks advanced with a 0.3% increase in the Stoxx 600, with carmakers and consumer-products companies outperforming. While newly found inflation has sparked a debate on whether the Federal Reserve will start tapering stimulus, recent data including Friday’s payrolls report seemed to justify the central bank’s dovish stance. Coming up this week, Apple will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference through June 11, announcing new hardware and software. On Thursday, Iran nuclear deal talks reconvene in Vienna and the US consumer price index is released. On Friday, the Group of Seven summit starts in Cornwall, England.

The curve has bear-steepened with the UST 10-Year yield up 1.87 bps.
