U.S. Equity Market
U.S. stocks bounced back on Friday as economic data continued to point to a robust economic recovery as housing data gained and consumer confidence continued to peak. The positive economic data sparked a rotation back into the equities market as risk sentiment improved. On average equities managed to gain by 1.30%.
Asian Stock Market
Asian equity markets traded mixed, as investors digested weaker data from the Euro zone against dovish comments from Fed’s James Bullard. The Indonesian equity index posted the highest gains, up by 1.56% on reports that President Jokowi plans to raise subsidized gasoline & diesel prices in a bid to reduce the country's budget deficit. Meanwhile, stocks in South Korea declined by 0.95% as investors cut risk exposure on fear of slowing global growth. On average, equity indices in Asia recovered by 0.24%.
Currency Markets
Most Asian currencies rebounded slightly against the USD, with the average dragged upwards by the strengthening of the Indonesian Rupiah. The JCI saw buying interest, pulling in flows that boosted the IDR. On the flip side, the Korean Won depreciated by 0.39% as funds dumped Korean stocks on risk aversion. On average, the U.S. Dollar depreciated by 0.19%.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields moved higher as strong economic data spurred risk taking activities as equities bounced back. Consumer confidence and housing data proved positive as the economy continues to gain despite market volatility. The yield for the benchmark 10-year Treasury increased by 4 basis points while on average yields for treasuries closed higher by three basis points.
