Stocks plunged in Europe, dragging Wall Street’s futures lower, amid concerns related to the spread of the coronavirus Delta variant and signs of slowing global growth. Treasury yields are sharply down to multi-month lows, indicating a strong appetite for safety.
Meanwhile, the European Central Bank has shifted to a symmetric inflation target of 2% contrary to a ceiling at that level, allowing higher inflation to compensate for previous undershooting. President Christine Lagarde is set to offer a speech and explain the decision ahead of Wall Street’s opening.
