U.S Stocks Fall Back! The Sentiment Turns Neutral!
U.S stocks fall back. Stocks in the United States have retreated for the week after a week of advances. The top benchmark indices in the United States fell by around 0.29 percent to -4.53 percent. Higher interest rate expectations weighed heavily on growth companies and the technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite, causing the implied discount on future earnings to rise to its highest level in nearly a year.
Furthermore, the U.S jobless rate dropped to 3.9 percent, while salaries increased at a 4.7 percent annual rate. The most recent yield increase is a significant increase over the previous week, when the 10-year Treasury’s closing yield was 1.51%.
The shares in European market advanced despite the worries that central banks may reduce asset purchases and raise interest rates at a faster pace to contain persistent inflation. The top European benchmark indexes closed higher for the week, about 0.4% to 1.36%. The core euro-zone bond yields climbed
In December, the euro-zone’s inflation rate increased to a new high, owing to increases in energy and food prices. Consumer prices increased 5% year over year, accelerating from the 4.9 percent rate recorded in November.
The leading APAC benchmark indices finished in a mixed bag. The Nifty-50, Hangseng, and ASX 200 indexes all ended the week with a gain of 0.12 percent to 2.64 percent. The Nifty-50 in India underperformed. The Kospi-100, Nikkei 225, and CSE-50, on the other hand, fell by roughly -0.765 to -1.65 percent on a weekly basis. The Chinese stock market has underperformed
