U.S. Equity Market
U.S. equity markets posted gains as corporate earnings were not as bad as initially forecasted with gains in select heavyweight corporates. Better than expected economic data also helped boost risk sentiment with consumer sentiment up and industrial data revised to show better figures. On average, U.S. equities were up 0.41%.
Asian Stock Market
Most Asian equity markets moved higher on Monday on the dearth of any significant events that would alter risk sentiment. Stocks in Indonesia and China were gaining on anticipation for the implementation for stimulus from respective governments. Comments from Chinese officials lifted shares in Hong Kong and Shanghai as they declared that the recent correction in the stock market was "almost over". Bucking the trend were stocks in India as foreign players booked gains in the local equity market. On average, stocks in Asia gained by 0.71 percent.
Currency Markets
Asian currencies were mostly stronger with foreign flows in respective equity markets boosting currencies. Risk sentiment remains with markets expecting the first rate hike would be in 2016. The SGD weakened ahead of the policy meeting of the Monetary Authority of Singapore with some analysts betting on some form of easing. The INR was also weaker ahead of trade data to be reported later in the session. Overall on the average, the US Dollar depreciated against global currencies by 0.12 percent.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields were up 2 basis points as dealers rotated back into the equity market on better earnings and improved economic data. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield moved up 2 bps while the average yields for Treasuries were marginally higher.
