stock oct28 24jun22 lt

Markets worldwide on Friday tracked the positive sentiment at Wall Street the day earlier. The fall in commodity prices and the capital infusion into the banking system by the People's Bank of China also buoyed sentiment. Stocks in Asia and Europe as well as the Wall Street Futures are trading in positive territory, setting aside the fears that strong central bank action to raise interest rates could trigger a recession.

The Dollar Index retreated. Bond yields mostly eased. Oil prices edged up amidst traders trying to balance supply concerns and the dim demand outlook. Gold edged down. Cryptocurrencies extended gains.

Here is a snapshot of the world markets at this hour across stocks, currencies, bonds, commodities and cryptocurrencies.
