    • Brexit fears and worries about the implications of global interest rates plummeting even deeper into record-low territories make for good excuses as investors sell stocks on Monday.
    • Shanghai and Tokyo slid more than 3% overnight, and Hong Kong 2.5%. Europe's down 1.6% at midday. The pound (NYSEARCA:FXB) is down another 0.7% vs. the dollar and nearly 1% vs. the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE).
    • U.S. stock index futures are all off about 0.45%.
    • Back to interest rates: The German 10-year Bund yield looks set to join that of Japan and Switzerland in negative territory - it's down to 0.018% today. Meanwhile, it's "what, me worry" at the Fed, which this week meets to maybe hike rates, though markets don't expect that bold of a move. Instead, the policy statement, new set of economic forecasts, and Yellen press conference will be parsed for clues about whether a July hike is coming.

    • Stocks and bond yields remain modestly higher after Janet Yellen surprised few by taking note of the weak Friday jobs number, but reminding the Fed won't be swayed by one report. While the soft print bears watching, the economy remains on track, as does the central bank's plan to hike rates again at some point.
    • S&P 500 (SPY +0.4%), DJIA (DIA +0.5%), Nasdaq (QQQ +0.3%).
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is up 2 basis points to 1.72%. TLT -0.4%, TBT +0.8%

    • Look for the week of June 5 to be the week where Fed hawks and currently hawkish-leaning moderates explain away Friday's weak jobs numbers as nothing to be concerned with.
    • Top of the list is today's speech by Janet Yellen set for 12:30 ET. Look for the Fed chair to continue to push the idea of a rate hike in the coming months (though certainly not in June), and to put a lid on thoughts of further accommodation.
    • Ahead of Yellen, futures are marginally higher. Asia was modestly lower overnight and Europe is currently flat.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is up 2.5 basis points to 1.72%, gold is flat, and oil is up 1% to $49.109.

    • Alongside just 38K jobs added to payrolls in May (vs. 164K expected), April's 160K gain was revised lower by 37K jobs, and 22K jobs were cut from March's originally-reported 208K gain. That adds up to 59K in downward revisions for those two months.
    • The unemployment rate is looking great though - falling to 4.7% from 5% - thanks to the labor force participation rate dropping to 62.6% from 62.8%. The participation rate is now down by 40 basis points in the last three months.
    • The broader U-6 unemployment fell was unchanged at 9.7%.
    • The average workweek was unchanged at 34.4 hours. Average hourly earnings increased by a nickel to $25.59. On a Y/Y basis, earnings are up 2.5%.
    • Looking at the job totals in more detail, employment in information fell 34K in May, with the Verizon strike pulling 35K workers off company payrolls.
    • U.S. stock index futures (SPY, QQQ, DIA) have turned modestly lower following the headline miss, but the real action is in the bond market, where the 10-year Treasury yield has tumbled seven basis points to 1.73%. TLT +0.75%, TBT -1.5%

    • Oil had another big month in May, but it's starting off June -1.2% to $48.51 per barrel. U.S. stock index futures are lower by 0.3%.
    • The Nikkei fell 1.6% overnight, but other Asian markets were only modestly lower. Europe's Stoxx 600 is down 1% at midday.
    • There's a bit of money moving into Treasurys, with the 10-year yield down 1.5 basis points to 1.83%. Gold is little-changed.
    • Up at 10 ET is the PMI manufacturing report for May. The Chicago PMI fell back into contraction zone yesterday, and consensus for this morning's print is for a small decline to 50.4.
