U.S. Equity Market
U.S. equity markets came back to life on Wednesday as investors saw the recent sell-off as overdone. Major markets were up in a big way with the Nasdaq rebounding to settle at a record high. Gains were capped however as Greece continues to struggle to strike a deal with creditor. On average, U.S. equities jumped by 1.02 percent.
Asian Stock Market
Asian stocks were mostly weaker on Wednesday as risk sentiment took a hit after Wall Street's steep drop overnight. Risk assets in the region were broadsided by the heightened expectations for a Fed rate hike with heavy losses seen throughout the region. Managing to gain were stocks in Japan and Shanghai with the Nikkei posting its 9th session of gains on light volume while Shanghai continued to move higher boosted by positive industrial profits data. On average, Asian stocks plummeted by 0.63%.
Currency Markets
Select Asian currencies were on the run once more with strong U.S. data increasing prospects for a Fed rate hike in September. The Korean Won dropped by 0.41% as foreign players unloaded stocks in the Kospi. The Thai Baht retreated as exports contracted for a fourth straight month. Other currencies were able to gain on Wednesday as the Dollar's sharp rally was seen as overdone. On average, the USD depreciated by 0.10 percent.
Bond Market
U.S. Treasury yields saw mixed trends with the yield curve flattening on fresh supply and Greek concerns. The 5-year auction saw heavy demand while belly issues reacted to continued fears of a Fed rate hike in September. The long-end of the curve saw healthy buying on month-end demand and safe haven bids over the Greek crisis. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield was a basis point lower while the average yields for Treasuries were marginally lower.
