stockmarkets dec31 07oct22 lt

Sentiment in world markets remained muted ahead of the release of the non-farm payrolls data from the U.S., an important ingredient of the Fed's monetary policy decision making. Markets also weighed the likely impact of the recent output cut by OPEC+ on inflation.

Asian stocks finished with losses. European stocks are trading mixed. Wall Street also appears set to open with mild losses.

The Dollar Index weakened mildly. Bond yields mostly hardened. Gold is hovering closed to the flatline. Crude oil prices continued to surge in the backdrop of the output cut by OPEC+. Cryptocurrencies are trading in negative territory.
