The Trading Room

UPDATED 7:10 am ET

STOCKS – U.S. stock-index futures were little changed, with equities heading for the longest stretch of quarterly gains since 1998, as investors assessed valuations before data that may show the economy is improving.

BONDS – Treasuries rose in the first half of 2014 to almost erase last year’s losses as the U.S. economy contracted while conflict in Iraq and Ukraine fueled demand for the safest securities.

COMMODITIES – Brent crude declined, trimming its biggest monthly gain since August amid speculation that continuing violence in Iraq won’t disrupt supply from OPEC’s second-largest oil producer. West Texas Intermediate also fell.

CURRENCIES – The options market isn’t convinced European Central Bank President Mario Draghi will succeed in his aim to weaken the euro.

ECONOMIC DATA – CAD GDP m/m due at 8:30, US Chicago PMI at 9:45, Pending Home Sales m/m at 10:00, CNY Manufacturing PMI at 21:00, CNY HSBC Final Manufacturing PMI at 21:45 ET.
