View on market: Stay Cautious, be with quality business:

U.S. futures rose and oil dropped sharply on signs that the Biden administration is considering a massive release of crude from U.S. reserves to combat inflation. A slide in Chinese technology stocks weighed on Asia.   Shares weakened in China and Hong Kong following data showing contraction in Chinese manufacturing, while Japan’s equities steadied, with the yen pulling back after two days of gains. Earlier, the S&P 500 closed lower for the first time in five days and the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 dropped as talks between Russia and Ukraine stalled.  Reports that Washington is preparing a plan to release roughly a million barrels of oil a day helped reverse a rebound in crude. The news comes ahead of an OPEC+ supply meeting later Thursday, where the cartel is expected to stick with its strategy of a modest output boost in May. Chinese stocks are under pressure as output data reflect the damage of renewed lockdowns in technology and factory hubs. Further denting sentiment, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s chief tamped down speculation that a deal is brewing to keep about 200 Chinese stocks from losing their listings. Meanwhile, China’s central bank vowed to boost confidence and provide more effective support to the economy.  Treasuries added to gains across the curve, while a portion of the curve has pulled out of a brief inversion that raised concerns about an impending recession. The dollar held a retreat.
