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

Anxiety over interest rate hardening, exacerbated by earnings disappointment and unease over political tensions between the U.S and Russia, rattled investor sentiment across Asia and Europe. Asian stocks mostly closed in the red. European stocks are also in deep negative territory. American stock futures appear to extend further on Thursday's losses. The Dollar Index declined. Bond yields eased across tenors and across geographies. Crude oil prices cooled off amidst data that showed U.S. crude oil inventories increased by 0.515 million barrels in the recent week versus market forecasts of a 0.938 million drop. Gold declined despite falling bond yields and a weaker Dollar Index. Cryptocurrencies dropped drastically over reports that the Russian Central Bank mooted a crypto ban. Bitcoin and Ethereum are down more than 7 percent.
