U.S Stocks Tumbled! The Sentiment Turns Neutral!

U.S stocks tumbled. Concerns about rising interest rates and economic growth pushed the S&P 500 Index to its largest one-year drop. The U.S Technology index Nasdaq-100 and small cap index Russel-2000 were dropped over -7% as a weekly loss.

For the week, a gauge of investors’ expectations for short-term volatility in the US stock market increased by more than 50%. The Cboe Volatility Index VIX has increased to roughly 29 from around 19 at the previous week’s finish. The employment numbers looked to result in the Treasury yield curve flattening.

The European benchmark indexes ended the week lower by between -0.65 per cent to -1.76 per cent. The critical elements were growing expectations that the European Central Bank (ECB) will increase interest rates this year and that the Bank of England would also need to tighten monetary policy. Core eurozone bond yields fell.

Most APAC benchmark indices declined for the week. The indexes Nikkei 225, ASX 200, Kospi 100 and Nifty 50 declined over -2%. The Nifty 50 index in India underperformed. On the other hand, the indexes HIS 50 and SSE 50 ended with a positive mark. Chinese markets gained ground last week as the government tightened monetary policy and pledged extra support for the country’s struggling property industry.
