Global market sentiment was heavily impacted as an aggressively hawkish Fed resolved to hike interest rates, end monetary stimulus and shrink its balance sheet to tame the raging inflation which was at a 40-year high. Asian stocks closed deep in the red. European stocks are mostly negative. American stock futures however edged up. The Dollar Index surged by almost a percent. Bond yields mostly hardened, in alignment with the imminent interest rate hike expectations. Crude oil prices moved higher amidst persisting geopolitical risks and despite a larger-than-expected expansion in U.S. inventory. Non-interest-bearing Gold dropped as Fed appeared inclined to increase interest rates as much as required to tame inflation. Cryptocurrency market shed around 3 percent.
