U.S. Equity Market
U.S. equities continued to gain on Tuesday although trading was choppy as markets continued to sell-off technology shares. Investors rotated into defensive shares and dropped high beta shares. On average, U.S. stocks gained by 0.50%.
Asian Stock Market
Asian equities saw mixed trends as select markets bounced back on Tuesday while others were weighed by both domestic and geopolitical concerns. The Nikkei gained on Tuesday as better U.S. data sparked some optimism for exporting corporates as the world's largest economy continues to recover. Retreating however were the Hang Seng and Shanghai indices who were both negatively affected by the report on money supply which ground to its slowest pace of expansion in more than a decade. The Indian Sensex edged lower on the back of profit-taking after previously gaining on election optimism. On average however, Asian stocks traded lower by 0.44%.
Currency Markets
Most Asian currencies retreated on Tuesday as the Dollar regained some luster in the wake of the strong retail sales report. Risk sentiment also took a hit as geopolitical tension spiked with Russian fighter jets "buzzing" a U.S. warship and as pro-Russian protestors continued attacks on Ukraine government buildings. The AUD fell by 0.36% as the minutes of the most recent RBA meeting failed to give traders any fresh leads. Investors also opted to stay defensive ahead of a speech by Fed Chair Yellen later on Tuesday while other markets waited on the release of 1Q GDP figures from China. On average the U.S. Dollar appreciated by 0.09%.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields showed mixed movements with the curve flattening as the Ukraine tension sparked a safety bid. The yield for the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury decreased by 2 basis points and on average yields for U.S. Treasuries closed marginally lower.
