Asian markets mostly closed with gains. European markets are trading in positive territory. Wall Street futures are also trading in the green zone. The Dollar Index retreated as risk appetite increased. Bond yields increased amidst persisting inflation fears. Crude prices moved higher amidst the push for an E.U. ban on Russian oil and progress in China's Covid-19 situation. Gold edged up amidst the Dollar's weakness. Cryptocurrencies rallied.
