U.S. Equity Market
U.S. equity markets retreated for a fifth straight session as risk sentiment was absent after stocks in China plunged by 8.5%. Shares in China went into freefall on concerns that government-induced stimulus was dissipating and industrial profits contracted, forcing dealers to quickly unload assets. On average, U.S. equities dropped by 0.76 percent.
Asian Stock Market
Asian equity markets were on the retreat once more as risk sentiment was absent to start the week after stocks on Wall Street tumbled by more than 1% last Friday. Concerns about the the health of the global economy weighed on sentiment with tanking commodity prices pointing to slower growth in China and Europe. Market players also opted to keep to the sidelines ahead of market-moving economic releases and events with U.S. 2Q GDP and the FOMC meeting on deck in the coming sessions. Stocks in Shanghai plunged after government-led stimulus dried up with investors fretting the actual health of the economy in the wake of weaker PMI manufacturing numbers. On average, Asian stocks dropped by 1.89 percent.
Currency Markets
Global currencies were able to recover from steep losses in the previous week as Dollar strength eased on profit-taking. The Korean Won appreciated with exporters cashing in their export receipts although gains in the Thai Baht were pared as trade data fell below expectations. However, select Asian currencies remained pressured with the IDR continuing to slide in tandem with the fall in commodity prices and profit-taking whittled the INR to close down by 0.09%. On average, the US Dollar depreciated by 0.23 percent.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields slipped anew on risk haven buying as the global equity route ensued. A poor reading for core durable goods orders also dampened prospects for an overly strong 2Q GDP print. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield dipped 4 bps while on average yields for Treasuries were down 3 bps.
