U.S. Equity Market
U.S. stocks declined on Tuesday, with the energy sector posting the biggest loss sending the S&P lower, as the fall in world crude prices affect energy stocks. Disappointment was also found economic data, with consumer sentiment falling to 86 from 93.4 in August, missing expectations at 92.8 and as Chicago PMI fell to 60.5 in September from 64.3 in August. On average, stocks pulled back by 0.24%
Asian Stock Market
Asian stocks traded lower as sentiment in Asia was dampened by the on-going protest in Hong Kong and the lower Chinese HSBC Manufacturing PMI. The Hang Seng fell by 1.30% as protestors and police continued to clash. The Singaporean equity index STI also dropped, as shares of a commodity trader declined on news that a Chinese fund planned to sell the stock. On average, equity indices in Asia dropped by 0.17%.
Currency Markets
The US Dollar continued to appreciate against most currencies on Tuesday although pared some of its gains as trading patterns signalled that the greenback had reached overbought levels against 10 major peers. The Euro slid further and weakened to 1.2597 at the close of the Asian session as Euro zone inflation slowed in September, boosting expectations of more stimulus from the ECB. On average, the U.S. Dollar appreciated by 0.20%.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields rose by another basis point to close its worst month in 2014 ahead of all important jobs reports as investors shuffled their holdings as the quarter ended. Bonds continued to trade with a hawkish tone, with long-end notes climbed higher 3 basis points on average, with the benchmark 10-year note yield rising by a basis point at 2.49%.
