stock oct08 24may22 lt

Hawkish comments from the ECB and Snapchat's warnings on future earnings as well as revenue influenced equity market sentiments in Tuesday's trade. Caution also prevailed ahead of the release of the FOMC minutes on Wednesday.

Asian and European equity markets plunged. Wall Street Futures too are trading in the red zone. The Dollar Index retreated further. Bond yields eased across regions. Crude prices edged down as potential oil demand and likely supply concerns did not suffice to revive sentiment. Gold rose modestly as the Dollar retreated further. Cryptocurrencies plunged again.
