Here is a snapshot of the global markets across stocks, currencies, bonds, commodities and cryptocurrencies.

Market mayhem subsided as panic surrounding the Omicron variant was deemed overdone amidst reports that Moderna's vaccine booster dose offered some protection against the Omicron variant. Asian benchmarks closed with strong gains. European stocks too have rebounded comfortably. American stock futures are well into positive territory. The Dollar remained muted against major currencies. Ten-year bond yields hardened as risk-on behavior gradually returned to world markets. Oil benchmarks too staged a relief rally. Gold rallied mildly as the Dollar retreated. Cryptocurrencies surged ahead. Bitcoin and Ethereum are up around 5 percent.
