North American Morning Briefing: Stock Futures -2-

06/30/2021 | 06:09am EDT

The commission on Tuesday said this is the first such charge against a provider of an order and execution management system. It said Neovest agreed to pay $2.75 million in penalty, though the company didn't admit or deny the SEC's findings.


Treasury Yields Signal Investors' Waning Economic Exuberance

The recent drop in U.S. Treasury yields reveals some investors' doubts about how strong the economy will be in the coming years, even as inflation pushes to its highest level in more than a decade.

Yields, which fall when bond prices rise, have surprised many by sliding in the second quarter of the year. That marks a reversal from the sharp rise of the year's first three months, when markets generally rode a wave of optimism that stimulus and reopenings would spur a roaring '20s type of acceleration.


Biden Weighs New Executive Order Restraining Big Business

The Biden administration is developing an executive order directing agencies to strengthen oversight of industries that they perceive to be dominated by a small number of companies, a wide-ranging attempt to rein in big business power across the economy, according to people familiar with the plans.

The executive order, which President Biden could sign as soon as next week, would direct regulators of industries from airlines to agriculture to rethink their rule-making process to inject more competition and to give consumers, workers and suppliers more rights to challenge large producers.


China's Economy Flashes Hints of Weakness

BEIJING-Expansion in China's factory sector slowed in June, as export demand weakened while supply bottlenecks held back production, official data showed Wednesday.

Equally worrying, China's services sector, a persistent laggard in the country's post-pandemic rebound that Beijing policy makers are eager to see drive more of the economy, softened as recent coronavirus outbreaks again hindered consumer spending.


Eurozone Inflation Dips in June

Eurozone consumer prices were higher in June compared with a year earlier but rose at a slower pace than in the previous month, the European Union's statistics agency said.

Inflation in the currency area dipped to 1.9% in June from 2.0% in May, in line with that forecast by economists in a Wall Street Journal poll.


German Jobless Claims Fell More Than Expected in June

German jobless claims fell considerably more than expected in June, the Federal Employment Agency said Wednesday.

Jobless claims fell by 38,000 on the month after declining by a revised figure of 19,000 in May. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal had forecast a decline of 20,000.


Biden, in Wisconsin, Touts Job-Creating Potential of Infrastructure Deal

President Biden hailed his infrastructure deal as a job-creating economic boon, while progressive Democrats signaled they would give the president wiggle room on selling the plan, which they want paired with a wide-ranging antipoverty proposal.

Mr. Biden visited a transit station in La Crosse, Wis., offering a detailed rundown of the roughly $1 trillion agreement reached with a bipartisan group of lawmakers to modernize aging roads, bridges and broadband networks, eliminate lead from water pipes and build new charging stations for electric vehicles.


Supreme Court Declines to Lift National Eviction Moratorium

WASHINGTON-A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to lift a national moratorium on the eviction of tenants who have fallen behind on their rent during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The court rejected an emergency request by landlords and real-estate companies to clear the way for evictions after a federal judge in Washington ruled last month that the moratorium was legally unsupportable. The judge who issued that ruling stayed the effect of the decision, while litigation continues.


Kim Jong Un Warns of Grave Covid-19 Situation in North Korea

SEOUL-Kim Jong Un said North Korea's Covid-19 situation has become grave and admonished senior officials for lapses in the fight against the disease.

Mr. Kim, speaking at a Politburo meeting, didn't specify what had gone wrong. North Korea has reported zero Covid-19 cases and tested more than 31,000 individuals, according to the World Health Organization's latest figures.


California's Drought Leads to Cutbacks in Marin County but Not in San Diego

SAN DIEGO-At the southern end of California, residents have been assured their water supplies are secure and plentiful despite the state's severe drought.

In Marin County, 500 miles north, lawn sprinklers are allowed only two days a week, washing a car at home is banned, and decorative fountains can't be refilled. The orders are part of an effort by the local water district to cut usage by 40% after a precipitous fall in the local reservoirs.


Schools Weigh Discipline After Supreme Court Ruling on Student Speech

Mondays are usually when Bill Ziegler hears about the latest drama unfolding at the suburban Philadelphia high school where he is a principal. That is when social-media posts uploaded by students over the weekend spill into chatter on campus and have the potential to snowball into a disruptive force.

Dr. Ziegler's training and 14 years as a principal instruct him to intervene when social-media posts become a hindrance to educational activity. He would meet with the students involved and investigate the claims, including what was posted, where, and whether online comments were created on a school device. He sometimes takes disciplinary action.
