10 things you need to know before the opening bell

Published by Business Insider on Tue, 05 Jul 2016

Here is what you need to know.The Bank of England takes action. The BOE's Financial Policy Committee cut its countercyclical capital buffer for UK banks to zero from 0.50%, according to the latest Financial Stability Report, which was released Tuesday. The committee says the buffer will remain in place for at least the next year as the UK economy deals with "uncertainty" following the vote for a British exit from the European Union, or Brexit.The British pound is at a 31-year low. The Bank of England's Financial Stability report calling Brexit "the most significant near-term domestic risks to financial stability" pressured the British pound to a loss of 1%. Tuesday's weakness has the currency down to 1.3150, its weakest since September 1985. Australia's central bank kept rates on hold. The Reserve Bank of Australia held its key interest rate unchanged at 1.75%, as expected. The RBA said it would be watching both growth and inflation data closely. "The absolute MacDaddy release will be the Q2 CPI print on 27 July," said Chris Weston, chief markets analyst at IG Markets in Melbourne. "The CPI print will absolutely solidify rates expectations and another low ball print seems to be likely and in my view be the nail in the coffin for an August rate cut." The Australian dollar is down 0.5% at .7500.European PMI data was disappointing. Manufacturing and services data in Europe suffered as a result of the uncertainty over the Brexit vote. Data for June, which was collected before the UK decided to leave the European Union, showed that Britain's industry suffered its worst quarter in more than three years, printing 52.3. Additionally, Germany's services reading dropped to 53.7, and France's sank back into contraction with a reading of 49.9. "The lack of any sign that the upturn is picking up speed will worry policymakers, especially as 'Brexit' uncertainty looks likely to subdue growth in coming months," Markit's chief economist, Chris Williamson, said in the release.Italy's 3rd-biggest bank could get a capital injection. The Italian government is considering a plan that would boost the finances of the Italian lender Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA. According to Bloomberg, citing the Italian newspaper La Stampa, the plan being considered would include the sale of convertible bonds to the Italian government and the injection of at least 3 billion euros ($3.3 billion). Monte Paschi shares are down more than 7% on Tuesday and have crashed more than 75% this year, Bloomberg says. Warren Buffett wants to exceed the 10% limit in Wells Fargo. Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway wants to own more than 10% of the banking giant Wells Fargo. Berkshire was required to file a disclosure with the Federal Reserve after its stake increased at 10.012% of Wells as a result of the company's share-buyback program. "Berkshire does not have any present intention to acquire additional shares of common stock of Wells Fargo," the filing said. "However, Berkshire routinely assesses market conditions and may decide to purchase additional shares of common stock of Wells Fargo based on its evaluation of the investment opportunity presented by such purchases."Tesla missed its delivery target. On Sunday, Tesla announced the delivery of 14,370 cars in the second quarter of 2016, missing its 17,000-car target. Deliveries were down from the first quarter's total of 14,820 cars, and they are on track to fall well short of the 80,000 to 90,000 cars the company forecast to deliver this year. "Due to the extreme production ramp in Q2 and the high mix of customer-ordered vehicles still on trucks and ships at the end of the quarter, Tesla Q2 deliveries were lower than anticipated at 14,370 vehicles, consisting of 9,745 Model S and 4,625 Model X," Tesla said in a statement.Brexit could delay the UK selling its stake in RBS. The UK government's planned sale of its stake in RBS could be delayed "at least a couple of years" as a result of the Brexit, CEO Ross McEwan told LBC Radio. The government still owns 73% of the bank after a taxpayer bailout eight years ago.Stock markets around the world are mostly lower. Germany's DAX (-1.4%) lags in Europe after Hong Kong's Hang Seng (-1.5%) trailed in Asia. S&P 500 futures are down 10.25 points at 2,086.00.US economic data flows. ISM New York will be released at 9:45 a.m. ET before factory orders and durable goods cross the wires at 10 a.m. ET. The US 10-year yield is lower by 7 basis points at 1.38%.Join the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: An exercise scientist reveals how to get six-pack abs
