S&P 500










U.S. futures are looking modestly lower as investors put a rough 1H of the year behind them and look to start the 2H fresh, though the outlook remains murky with several more interest rate hikes on the horizon from the Fed. Heading into H2, many are worried that central bank actions could push the global economy into a downward spiral. Also weighing on sentiment remains cautious outlooks from several companies talking about slowing demand and orders in upcoming quarters. Micron (MU) said last night industry demand environment has weakened and TSM said they have seen its major clients adjust downward their chip orders for the rest of 2022. That followed cautious outlooks from BBBY and RH in the consumer space this week. Stocks come into the day putting a brutal month, quarter and 1H in the books.

For the first half of 2022, the S&P 500 fell -20.6%, the Dow fell -15.3% and the Nasdaq fell -29.5%.
