U.S. Equity Market
U.S. equity markets pulled back on poor economic data and concerns over the Greek crisis. Weaker-than-anticipated non-farm payrolls numbers coupled with a stern warning from the IMF forced dealers to book gains ahead of the long weekend. On average, U.S. equities slipped by 0.09 percent.
Asian Stock Market
Asian stocks continued to inch higher, taking heart from the rally on Wall Street overnight. Gains were muted however ahead of the jobs report from the U.S. later in the session. Stocks in China continued their mercurial pattern, gaining in the morning session only to lose ground by the afternoon as investors continued to fret weak growth and the crackdown on margin financing. The Thai SET returned from a holiday on the backfoot with consumer confidence slipping. On average, Asian stocks sans Shanghai gained by 0.52 percent.
Currency Markets
Global currencies retreated on Thursday as investors shied away from making bets against the Dollar ahead of the jobs report later in the session. Market expects that the non-farm payrolls report will show an economy strongly rebounding, cementing the expectations for a September Fed rate hike. The South Korean Won was weaker for another session on poor economic data showing a smaller current account surplus. GBP was also weaker as disappointing housing and manufacturing data lessened the chances of an early rate hike by the BoE. Managing to gain on Thursday was the Indian Rupee as the central bank Governor indicated India could accommodate more foreign investment flows. On average, the USD appreciated by 0.11 percent.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields moved lower as labor data fell below expectations and safe haven demand remained elevated on the back of the Greek debt crisis. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield was 4 basis points lower while the average yields for Treasuries were down by 4 basis points.
