U.S. Equity Market
U.S. equity markets took a breather on Friday, retreating after bellwether stocks dipped on poor earnings reports. Economic data on the other hand provided some cushion with durable goods order printing on the upside although the fragile truce in the gaza strip dampened overall sentiment. On average, U.S. stocks fell by 0.57%.
Asian Stock Market
South East Asian stock exchanges were mostly weaker ahead of holidays in the coming week with profit-taking dominating. Shares in India were the biggest losers on Friday with poor corporate earnings dampening risk sentiment. Meanwhile, Singapore and Malaysia both retreated as dealers stayed defensive ahead of the three-day weekend. On the other hand, East Asian shares were big gainers with stocks in Shanghai and Hongkong gaining on hopes that the cross-border linking of the two stock exchanges would be completed soon. The Nikkei gained markedly as blue-chip shares were snatched up after positive earnings while foreign participation in the Korean Kospi continued to offset domestic selling. On average, prices of Asian stocks dipped by 0.03%.
Currency Markets
The Dollar continued to gain strength on Friday as strong U.S. labor numbers helped the Dollar regain some lost ground. The EUR retreated as German surveys on business expectations fell below market estimates. The IDR weakened on stock market woes and as corporates secured their Dollar requirements towards the month-end. The Japanese Yen also faced weakness on the back of softer inflation data, which could convince the BoJ to enact more easing measures. On average, the U.S. Dollar appreciated by 0.02%.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields headed south as investors rotated out from the equity market ahead of a busy week in the United States. Investors played defensive ahead of key policy meetings and data releases. Yields for the benchmark 10-year Treasury fell by 4 basis points while on average, the curve fell by two basis points.
