One hundred years ago, this was one of the longest losing streaks in American history. Businesses such as Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) and Chewy will be releasing their financial results throughout these four days. Since the EU secured an agreement Monday to prohibit approximately 90% of Russian oil imports by 2013, oil prices have continued to soar.

As bond rates rise in direct opposition to bond prices, the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yield stands at 2.8%. Preliminary data for May suggests that yet another round of record-high inflation struck Europe, and oil prices have risen in tandem with an EU agreement to restrict Russian oil, both of which contributed to the most recent surge. China will also eliminate the limitations on coronavirus in Shanghai, China’s most populated city, on Wednesday, two months after they were initially introduced.

According to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Home Price Index, home prices rose 20.6 percent from a year earlier. Also, this would be larger than the 20% increase in February. According to the report, increased mortgage rates did not slow down March’s rise in house prices. Phoenix, Tampa, and Miami have the most significant yearly growth rates. As the number of homes on the market continues to decline, prices are expected to begin to drop in the months to come.
