Asian and European equity markets rallied at the start of the week. Wall Street Futures are in green zone. The Ifo Business Indicator in Germany touched a three-month high, adding to the sentiment in the European bourses. The Dollar Index retreated further, as risk-on sentiment increased with progress in China's Covid-control initiatives. Bond yields hardened across regions. Crude prices increased modestly amidst hopes that oil demand would soon pick up. Gold too gained as the Dollar retreated. Cryptocurrencies also gained.
