PREMARKET WORLD NEWS

Jun E-mini S&Ps are little changed, up +0.04%, as they consolidate Wednesday’s rally in the S&P 500 to a 4-1/2 month high. European stocks fell back from a 3-1/2 month high and are down -0.21% on long liquidation ahead of the results of today’s ECB meeting and press conference from ECB President Draghi immediately after. Losses were contained as mining stocks and energy producers moved higher as the price of copper climbed to a 4-week high and the price of crude rose to a 5-1/4 month high. Asian stocks settled mostly higher: Japan +2.70%, Hong Kong +1.82%, China -0.66%, Taiwan +0.64%, Australia +1.09%, Singapore +0.37%, South Korea +0.86%, India +0.14%. Japan’s Nikkei Stock Index posted a 2-1/2 month high as exporters rallied after the yen fell to a 2-week low against the dollar and on speculation that the BOJ may expand asset purchases at next week’s policy meeting.

The dollar index is down -0.05%. EUR/USD is up +0.13%. USD/JPY is down -0.09%.

Jun T-note prices are down -3.5 ticks at a 3-week low as they were pressured from a fall in German bund prices to a 4-week low.
