World Market Trends

stockmarkets dec19 19jan23 lt

Renewed recession fears amidst weak economic data from the U.S. dampened sentiment across world markets. Data released on Wednesday had shown retail sales and producer price inflation declining more than expected in December. Investors also weighed hawkish comments from central bank officials as well as most recent corporate earnings.

Asian stocks finished mixed. Major European benchmarks are trading in negative territory. Wall Street Futures indicate losses on opening.

The Dollar Index continued its bearish sentiment. Bond yields moved mixed. Crude oil prices slipped as industry data from the U.S. showed an unexpected build in inventories. Gold edged higher. Cryptocurrencies declined.

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