U.S. equity futures climbed with European stocks on Monday as markets regained a measure of calm following volatility spurred by the Federal Reserve‚Äôs surprise hawkishness. Contracts on the S&P 500 advanced after spending most of the Asia session in the red. The Stoxx 600 Index also rebounded from an earlier loss, with U.K. grocer Wm Morrison Supermarkets Plc surging 32% after rejecting an unsolicited takeover bid, sending shares of peers Tesco Plc and J Sainsbury Plc higher.
Earlier, speculation that faster-than-expected policy tightening by the Federal Reserve would sink the reflation trade spurred caution across markets. The 30-year U.S. Treasury yield dropped below 2% for the first time since February. Asian markets slumped, with the Nikkei 225 down 4% at one point.
