In Asia today, the Nikkei closed up 1.78%. Hong Kong HSI is down -0.24%. China Shanghai SSE is up 0.04%. Singapore Strait Times is up 1.33%. Japan 10-year JGB yield is down -0.0119 at 0.032. Overnight, DOW rose 1.05%. S&P 500 rose 1.40% to 3380.35, just inch below record high of 3393.52. NASDAQ rose 2.13%. 10 year yield rose for another day, by 0.012 to 0.670. It remains to be seen if the rebound in yield is there to stay on not.
For the currencies market, European majors turn slightly stronger today. The EUR appears to be supported by news that US is refraining from tariffs hikes on Airbus subsidies retaliation. Though, except against the JPY, EUR’s strength is not too convincing yet. The USD did turn soft following strong rally in US stocks overnight. But surprisingly, commodity currencies are not riding on solid risk-on sentiments at all. Even a set of positive job data from Australia is not able to lift the AUD. Focus will now turn to jobless claims from US later in the day.
As for Gold and in the international markets, spot gold prices witnessed their biggest single-day drop in over seven years on Tuesday as stocks surged and the USD strengthened. Amid other cues, uncertainty over stimulus by US Federal Reserve played truant for investor sentiment for gold. The fall that took gold below $1,900 has flushed out a lot of weak longs and it looks like now the price is going for a bit of consolidation and gold is preparing for another move higher.
