US index futures are up in Monday’s pre-market, staging a recovery and digesting data from Europe and China, following a week in which U.S. interest rate concerns left investors apprehensive and fueled a global risk-averse sentiment.

By 6:48 AM, Dow Jones (DOWI:DJI) futures were up 105 points, or 0.30%. S&P 500 futures were up 0.43% and Nasdaq-100 futures were up 0.55%. The 10-year Treasury yield was at 4,298%.

In Germany, the producer price index recorded a monthly drop of 1.10% in July, beating expectations of -0.20%. In annual terms, there was a decrease of 6.0%, indicating a positive scenario amid the restricted conditions of the largest European economy.

In Asian markets, lack of direction prevailed due to growing concerns about China. Evergrande, the real estate giant, has filed for creditor protection in the US. The People’s Bank of China (PBoC) cut the one-year lending rate to 3.45%, down from 3.55% previously, while the five-year rate remained at 4.20%. Despite expectations of a bigger cut to boost sectors, the PBoC implemented measures to mitigate financial risks in the face of concerns about contagion in the real estate sector.

In commodities markets, West Texas Intermediate crude for September was up 1.05% to trade at $82.10 a barrel. Brent crude for October was up 0.88% near $85.55 a barrel. Iron ore futures traded in Dalian, China, were up 0.91% to $106.18 a tonne.

At Friday’s close, the Dow Jones rose 25.83 points, or 0.07%, to 34,500.66 points. The S&P 500 was broadly flat, or -0.01%, at 4,369.71 points, while the Nasdaq ended up losing 26.16 points, or 0.20%, at 13,290.78 points. Anxieties related to rising interest rates worldwide continue to influence risk aversion sentiment, and increases in yields hit technology and finance companies hardest.

The increase in long-term interest rates in the United States, in part, seems to be linked to the idea that the probability of an imminent recession is now less likely, and a mild slowdown scenario seems to be taking shape. In any case, the fall in asset values ​​over the last few days found a point of stability on Friday, as US stocks, except for the technology sector, showed a day of appreciation.

Ahead of Monday’s corporate results, traders are watching reports from Zoom Video (NASDAQ:ZM) and Nordson (NASDAQ:NDSN).
