Stock futures in the US rose as investors await the Federal Reserve’s next policy decision.

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures added 17 points, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures increased 0.03 percent and 0.02 percent, respectively.

The broad market index and Nasdaq both ended the previous trading week in the red, marking their second straight week of losses.

The Dow managed to end the week 0.1% higher.

Investors are expecting the Fed to hold interest rates steady, but traders will be closely watching the central bank’s stance on inflation.

European Markets

European markets closed slightly higher on Friday due to the European Central Bank’s suggestion that its latest hike may be its last.

The Stoxx 600 index rose 0.2%, with most sectors and major bourses in positive territory. Household goods led the gains, up 1.4%.

Luxury stocks saw a boost from Chinese retail sales figures. The ECB increased interest rates by 25 basis points, taking its main rate to a record high of 4%. Staff revised inflation forecasts for this year and next slightly higher, but nudged its 2025 forecast lower. Staff also revised economic growth expectations for the euro zone lower.

  Asian Markets

Asia-Pacific markets experienced a drop on Monday due to a week of central bank decisions. The U.S. Federal Reserve’s decision is expected early Thursday, while Australia’s central bank will release its policy meeting minutes on Tuesday. The Bank of Japan will conclude its monetary policy meeting on Friday, and the People’s Bank of China is expected to release its loan prime rate decisions on Friday.

Markets in Japan are closed for a public holiday.

Oil Prices

Oil prices reached a 10-month high on Friday and posted a third weekly gain due to supply tightness, primarily driven by Saudi Arabian production cuts, and optimism around Chinese demand to lift crude. Brent crude futures rose by 0.3% to settle at $93.93 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate futures rose by 0.7% to close at $90.77 a barrel. Oil prices are on track for their biggest quarterly increase since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in Q1 2022. Supply concerns continue to drive prices, as Saudi Arabia and Russia announced an extension of their combined supply cuts of 1.3 million barrels per day to the end of this year. China’s better-than-expected industrial output and retail sales data have also boosted oil prices, with Chinese oil refinery processing rising by nearly 20% from a year earlier.

Dollar Index

The Dollar index closed 0.06 percent lower in futures at 103.12, while the dollar’s value was near Rs 83.02.

Gold Prices

Gold rose by 1% on Friday due to a weaker dollar and safe-haven buying after the United Auto Workers union ended strikes at Detroit automakers. Gold futures also gained 0.9% to $1,949.70. Spot gold was up 0.9% at $1,927.79 per ounce, while US gold futures rose 0.9% to $1,949.70. The dollar slipped 0.3% against its rivals, making gold less expensive for other currency holders.

News Updates

Monetary policy to dominate commodity market sentiments this week

Global markets saw a boost as Chinese regulators boosted domestic consumption, while US inflationary pressures limited gains elsewhere. The US dollar reached a six-month high of 105.43, driven by persistent US inflation. The US Consumer Price Index rose by 0.6% in August, the largest monthly increase since May 2022. Core inflation moderated for the fifth consecutive month to 4.3%, aligning with market expectations. Retail sales also exceeded expectations, demonstrating consumer resilience. This leaves room for potential interest rate hikes in November or December, following an expected pause this month.
