Yahoo Finance's Ines Ferre joins the Live show to break down how stocks are moving in early trading.

Video Transcript

BRIAN SOZZI: Now let's get over to our very own Yahoo Finance's Ines Ferre. Ines, good to see you in person as well. Hey.

INES FERRE: Good to see you. It's great to be here. And let's check out what's happening on our YFi Interactive Board. The Dow flat right now, NASDAQ down about 4/10 of a percent. Looking over at the sector action, just taking a look under the hood, we're seeing that energy is the leader right now. And we're looking at healthcare, consumer discretionary that are lagging. We are about halfway through the month of April, a little bit more than that.

But these are the last 10 trading sessions, which are the days that are included in April. And you can see that energy for the month of April up 5-- more than 5%. XLK down more than 7%. And this kind of goes with the theme that we've seen throughout the year. So we're looking at energy, a whopping up 46%. XLK down 15% for the year. Back on our intraday chart, we are seeing the NASDAQ 100. Nvidia in the green, flipping between green and red territory throughout the session. We've got Microsoft now in the green as well, Alphabet as well.

Looking at the Chinese ADRs, wow, a lot of movement to the downside here. You can see Didi down 15%, but it was down about 20% earlier. And this is after more details about its delisting plans and a wider than expected loss. Looking also at the cybersecurity companies, we have been seeing some pressure on some of these. Datadog is down. Crowdstrike is down as well.

And then finally, I just want to mention what's happening with the commodity space because we are seeing WTI, Brent crude also higher, but I want to mention a couple of movements that we're seeing. Natural gas up more than 5% right now. These levels haven't been seen since in about 13 years. And then also, taking a look at corn futures, [? hud ?] hitting $8 a bushel. And these levels haven't been seen since 2012. And this is because of the war in Ukraine and more demand for corn from the US.

JULIE HYMAN: It looks like that Big Mac Index is going to be going up even more. Thanks so much, Ines. Appreciate it.
