Not much direct news overnight. Goldman Sachs warning that profit margins that are currently priced in markets may be too excessive, putting stocks at risk of more declines when Wall Street analysts downgrade their expectations. “While rotations within the equity market have signaled expectations of slowing growth, index valuation does not appear to be providing a buffer for the uncertainty around the path of future earnings,” strategists led by Ben Snider wrote.

The European Central Bank will activate the bond-purchasing firepower it’s earmarked as a first line of defense against a possible debt-market crisis on Friday, according to President Christine Lagarde. The ECB worrying about a potential panic over how reinvestments from the ECB’s 1.7 trillion-euro ($1.8 trillion) pandemic bond-buying portfolio are allocated is aimed at curbing unwarranted turmoil in government bonds as interest rates are lifted from record lows to curb unprecedented inflation. The ECB annual meeting taking place in Portugal this week. While describing the risk of a recession in the 19-member euro area as “non-trivial,” Governing Council member Martins Kazaks said rates can be raised “quite quickly” and called front-loading hikes -- including a possible July move beyond the planned quarter-point -- “reasonable.” Tomorrow Jerome Powell is scheduled to speak at the European Central Bank (ECB) Forum on Central Banking 2022, Sintra, Portugal
