World Market Trends

stock feb15 07feb23 lt

World markets recovered from Monday's sell-off but are waiting anxiously for forward guidance from Fed Chair Jerome Powell as well as key officials from Bank of England and European Central Bank.

Asian stocks finished on a mixed note. Major European benchmarks are trading higher, but the DAX declined amidst a steeper-than-expected decline in industrial production in Germany. Wall Street Futures appear directionless.

The Dollar Index edged lower. Bond yields moved mixed. Crude oil prices gained on continued hopes of a demand boost from China. The earthquake in Turkey impacting oil exports also stoked supply concerns. Gold extended gains after a painful sell-off in the previous week. Cryptocurrencies recovered.

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