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

The aggressive Fed stance revealed in the FOMC minutes and the unrest in Kazakhstan continued to influence world markets. Nervousness persisted ahead of the release of the crucial non-farm payrolls data from U.S. on Friday. Asian equity markets moved mixed. European stocks mostly trod positive territory. American stock futures are mildly positive. The Dollar Index has declined. Bond yields too moved mixed, but remained largely elevated in anticipation of the interest rate hiking cycle. Oil prices spiked as unrest in OPEC+ member Kazakhstan fueled supply concerns. Gold edged up despite the high bond yields that made the non-interest-bearing yellow metal unattractive. Cryptocurrencies have declined further by one percent. Bitcoin is down 1 percent whereas Ethereum is down 3 percent.
