US Futures Drift Near Overnight Lows, Jobless Claims Spike

Long
TVC:DXY   U.S. Dollar Currency Index
US Futures are hovering near yesterday's lows after a shaky start to the overnight session saw us reverse the Powell driven buying spree that started around 2:45PM when he said to take the dot plot with a "pinch of salt." Powell is now essentially saying that the Fed doesn't know what it's doing, so don't really listen to what the members think. I mean, this guy is a complete idiot imo. After rallying to erase essentially all of the afternoon losses, futures tanked shortly after the close, and we tested new session lows, to then drift marginally higher.

As of Thursday morning at 9AM the S&P was trading down -0.31% to 4,200, the Dow was down -0.23% to 33,828, with the Nasdaq down -0.38% to 13,918, and the Russell down -0.32% to 2,302.60. The Vix rose 2.5% to 18.61, while the dollar continued it's spectacular bounce to 91.81, up 0.46%. The US10Y yield also rallied hard after the FOMC minutes - but we're cooling lightly here before the open and sitting at 1.557%.

Gold is crashing and is down over 4% on the day. We're sitting at 1,785 and losing the 100DMA at 1,797. We're back in the descending channel , and looking at further downside as we approach the end of the trading week. Oil continues to rise, and is sitting just below a 72 handle, up 0.39% on the day.

Lastly, we saw jobless claims come in higher than expected moments ago. Initial claims rose to 412k vs the 350k expected, while continuing claims remained flat at 3.518MM (3.517 prior). Needless to say, investors are finally considering the fact that the cost of servicing debt is going to rise soon putting pressure on (debt fueled) asset prices, and in short order (by June 26th), roughly 1.5 million Americans will lose unemployment benefits. In September, apparently another 9 Million or so will lose benefits. Stagflation here we come...
