Stock futures traded slightly higher Tuesday evening as investors looked ahead to a key monetary policy decision from the Federal Reserve.
The debate over inflation could make for an interesting policy update from the Federal Reserve this week.
World stocks hit yet another record high on Tuesday, with European stocks poised for their longest winning streak since 2019 as investors bet likely "transitory" inflation pressures will stay the U.S. Federal Reserve's hand from signalling a shift in policy settings. A majority of investors surveyed by BofA said inflation was transitory, a marked change from March, when worries about more sustained price rises had sent U.S. 10-year Treasury yields surging to nearly 1.8%. With the yield now pinned below 1.5%, BofA expects the Fed to signal a dial back in stimulus by September.
