U.S. Equity Market
U.S. equity markets saw choppy trading throughout the session and ended lower as concerns over the escalating tension in Yemen forced dealers to the sidelines. Positive economy data helped limit gains as well as the sharp recovery in oil. On average, U.S. equity markets were still down by 0.25 percent.
Asian Stock Market
Asian shares traded mostly lower as escalating tensions in the Middle East and overnight losses in Wall Street hurt investor sentiment. The Indian Sensex index tumbled to a 10-week low, down by 1.39 percent, on concerns over foreign outflows. The Vietnam Ho Chi Minh index also tumbled and saw its fourth-straight day of foreign selling. The South Korean Kospi shared the same losing fate, lower by 0.99% as investors suspected that foreign exchange authorities were intervening in the market to buy the greenback. Meanwhile, stocks in China continued to outperform its peers, lifted by a surge in energy shares after a rebound in oil prices. On average Asian shares were higher by 0.29 percent.
Currency Markets
The Dollar traded mixed as the weaker USD trend from overnight was met by risk aversion on the back of geopolitical concerns in Yemen. The Japanese Yen strengthened by 0.84% on safe haven demand, while the Korean Won tumbled tracking losses in the South Korean bourse. On average, world currencies appreciated against the USD by 0.18.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields moved higher as the yield curve steepened as fresh supply drew tepid demand. Meanwhile, initial jobless claims fell once more, showing signs of a robust recovery in the labor sector. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield was higher by 6 basis points while on the average yields for Treasuries were 4 basis points higher.
