Asian stocks finished mostly lower. European benchmarks too traded largely lower. Wall Street futures imply losses on opening.

Dollar strengthened, lifting the Dollar Index mildly higher. Bond yields moved mixed. Crude oil prices dropped amidst data that showed an increase in crude oil inventories in the U.S. Gold weakened with the Dollar's strength. Cryptocurrencies dropped heavily.
