World Market Trends

stockmarkets dec12 29sep22 lt

World markets remained in bearish sentiment on Thursday amidst fears that persistent inflation and strong central bank action would trigger a painful recession. Data showing Eurozone economic indicator plunging to a two-year low also dampened sentiment.

Asian stocks finished on a mixed note. European stocks are trading with deep losses amidst caution ahead of release of inflation readings from Germany. Wall Street Futures too indicate losses on opening.

The Dollar resumed its climb after falling after the surprise easing measures announced by the Bank of England. Bond yields hardened again. Crude oil and gold traded lower amidst a rising Dollar. Cryptocurrencies however, rebounded.
