Today's G7 agenda: arms, aid and oil

It's the final day of the G7 summit in Germany, with the meetings expected to focus on keeping critical military and economic aid flying to Kyiv as the battle for eastern Ukraine intensifies and Russia steps up its attacks on innocent civilians. Meanwhile, the economic consequences of war and sanctions are on full display in Russia, with Moody's ruling Monday the country is formally in default for the first time in more than a century. The White House says that's proof that western sanctions...


Shockwaves continue from SCOTUS Roe ruling

Friday's Supreme Court decision overturning the constitutional right to abortion in the United States is reverberating across the world. Major US firms from Disney to JPMorgan and Apple are promising to provide financial support to workers who may need to travel for health care in other states. But what about small or business employees who are clearly hearing warnings about the economic impact of that Supreme Court decision? One study suggests denying women access to abortion will be...


Ukraine begins withdrawal from Severodonetsk

Ukrainian forces are withdrawing from the key city of Severodonetsk, effectively ceding the city to Russia and putting the eastern Ukrainian region of Luhansk almost fullyunder Russian control following months of grueling and bloody fighting.

Will summer solstice provide investors solace?

Wall Street seemed set to begin this short trading week with solid gains on the first day of summer in the northern hemisphere. That would certainly provide solace for investors still reeling after last week's precipitous drops, not to mention the continued recession warnings from the likes of Goldman Sachs and Elon Musk. The latter opined that a recession is more likely than not. And US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warns prices will remain unacceptably high through the rest of the year....


Liquidity fragility

US stock markets are closed Monday in honor of the Juneteenth holiday, providing investors a brief but perhaps welcome respite from last week's wild ride.

Digesting what the Fed said

As expected, the US Federal Reserve yesterday implemented a king-size rate hike of .75%. The European Central Bank is following suit with a queen-size .25% increase. US stocks rallied after the Fed's move. Is that confirmation that the Fed is now serious about tackling soaring prices? CNN's Christine Romans joins the show to discuss.

Monetary marathon day

A cornucopia of central bank action is taking place today. The main event: a rate hike decision from the Federal Reserve followed by a news conference by Chairman Jerome Powell. He's expected to confirm what the Fed strategically implied to a few select reporters earlier this week: a rate rise of .75%. Not to be outdone, the European Central Bank has announced an emergency meeting at which they will "apply flexibility and is working on an instrument to address rising bond yields in some...


How far will the Fed go?

Following a miserable Monday that finished with the S&P 500 in bear market territory, all eyes are on the Federal Reserve. Goldman Sachs says they expect a three-quarter percent rate hike at tomorrow's meeting. If that prediction is correct, it would be the biggest one-day hike in borrowing costs since 1994. And that, of course, is going to have a clear impact on consumer activity and market mentality. Julia and her guests have it all covered in today's show. To learn more about how CNN...

While for many around the world, summer is just around the corner. But for US consumers, the heat is already on.

CNN's Rahel Solomon walks us through the numbers. To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit


ECB to hike interest rates

Why the battle over Severodonetsk matters

Ukrainian officials say Severodonetsk in eastern Ukraine is almost entirely decimated but still not under the control of Russian forces. As this episode of First Move opens, CNN reporter Salma Abdelaziz explains why the battle over what has essentially been turned into a wasteland is vitally important. Also on today's show: how the war in Ukraine, China's Covid lockdowns, and rising prices are all weighing on the global economy. To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit...


Intense fighting continues in eastern Ukraine

British PM's future hanging in the balance

Britain's embattled Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces a confidence vote today. That's where lawmakers from his own Conservative party will decide if they still want him as leader. It requires 180 votes -- a simple majority -- to oust Johnson. CNN's Nada Bashir joins the show from Downing Street to explain the process and discuss what is likely to happen.

What the latest US jobs numbers really mean

Today's show begins just moments after the US Bureau of Labor Statistics released the latest jobs report -- a crucial piece of information for economists looking at signs of slowing growth as the Fed begins hiking rates. 390,000 jobs were added last month, a bit higher than anticipated, showing that the US job market remains very healthy but may be beginning to ease a bit. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate held steady at 3.6%. We take a deep dive into the numbers with CNN's Rahel Solomon. To...


JP Morgan chief predicts economic 'hurricane' is coming

Jamie Dimon, CEO of America's largest bank, issues a stark warning, saying it's time to brace yourself for an economic "hurricane. We just don't know if it's a minor one or Superstorm Sandy. You better brace yourself." Dimon adds that that JPMorgan Chase is preparing for a "non-benign environment" and "bad outcomes." His dire forecast comes amid a turbulent time for investors increasingly worried about a recession. Our in-depth analysis of Dimon's remarks begins with CNN global business...


Russia takes control of key Ukrainian city

A Ukrainian official says Russian forces now control 70% of Severodonetsk in the country's east, and that evacuations have been suspended as it's become impossible to import humanitarian aid. A thick orange cloud was visible over the city following an explosion at a chemical plant. Local militia claim the cloud contains nitric acid and blamed Ukrainian forces. Our coverage begins with CNN's Melissa Bell in Zaporizhya. To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit...

Russian forces advancing on eastern Ukraine
