U.S. Equity Market
U.S. equity markets continued to surge on Thursday with the Dow posting its steepest 2-day gain since the GFC. Risk sentiment improved after stocks in China were up while better-than-expected U.S. GDP figures boosted confidence in the economy. On average, U.S. equities jumped by 2.38 percent.
Asian Stock Market
Asian equity markets surged as investors returned to the market with Wall Street's rally fueling a similar gain in Asia. Stocks in China also held on to strong gains, enticing erstwhile timid investors back to risk assets. Stocks in Indonesia jumped significantly on reports that the government was set to unveil a set of measures to prop the sagging currency and boost investments. Bargain hunting dominated the session although some investors refrained from taking overly aggressive bets with the U.S. set to report 2Q GDP later in the session. On average, stocks in Asia surged by 2.63 percent.
Currency Markets
Most Asian currencies were stronger on Thursday as risk sentiment improved considerably with foreign players snatching up beaten-down stocks. The IDR was up on stimulus hopes while the Korean Won gained as exporters continued to unload trade receipts to pick up the Won. Meanwhile, the THB was trading weaker in reaction to the contraction in trade data. On average, the US Dollar appreciated by 0.05 percent on Thursday.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields closed the session mostly flat although yields for the belly inched higher in reaction to the strong growth and housing data. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield inched up a basis point while the average yields for Treasuries were marginally higher.
