The global market witnessed mixed directions. The top U.S benchmark indexes continue to rally about 1 to 2% weekly gain on the positive weekly jobs report. The tech index Nasdaq-100 outperformed. However, the midcap index Russel-2000 declined below -1%. The S&P 500 hit its new high for 2021, adding to the positive momentum from the first half of the year with the performance-driven economic reopening, rising corporate earnings and policy support.
The pace of job growth accelerated in June. The economy generated 850K new jobs last month, exceeding most economists’ expectations for around 700K.
The European benchmark Indexes posted a modest weekly loss of about -0.18% to -1% on worries that inflationary pressures might increase interest rates. The core Eurozone government bond yields fell, reflecting growing fears about the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus in Europe.
Most APAC benchmark indexes closed lower about -0.6 to -3.5% as a weekly loss. The Hong Kong index HIS-50 underperformed. Chinese stocks fell for the week on profit-taking by domestic investment funds.
