Futures are up slightly as the markets remain focused on the war between Russia and Ukraine — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
Peace talks between the two countries are ongoing but “hard,” according to Ukrainian presidential advisor Mykhailo Podolyak.
While concerns regarding the war are dominating market action, it’s not all investors are worried about. Investors still anticipate interest rate hikes in light of rising inflation. And now COVID-19 has resurfaced in China, bringing more pain to supply chain issues.
Beijing paused production in the manufacturing hub of Shenzhen, home to companies such as telecom equipment-maker Huawei Technologies and Foxconn, which supplies Apple and other electronics brands.
Foxconn announced its factories will be closed until it receives government approval to reopen.
