- The USD Index closed at 106.389 but had tumbled to a low of 106.28 from an overnight high of 108.44. It’s down from 112.93 on the November 3 FOMC day. Stocks extended gains at the Friday close with another solid session, albeit in choppy action amid worries over the bankruptcy of FTX. Yields – 10-year Treasury yield is up 6.7 bp at 3.88%, EGB yields are correcting from the highs seen on Friday, however the ECB remains on course to tighten rates beyond neutral and start QT next year.
- EUR – above parity at 1.0320.
- JPY – sideways at 139.50.
- GBP – turned below 1.1800.
- Stocks – US100 to a 1.88% surge, while the US500 was up 0.92%. The US30 edged up 0.1%. The components of the US500 were mixed but a 3% pop in energy and a 2.46% jump in consumer discretionary sectors helped overcome losses in health care and utilities. Today, stocks struggled a bit and corrected some of last week’s gains, although China bourses got a boost from official directives aimed at supporting the ailing property sector, which added to the slight easing of virus restrictions that were announced last week. Hang Seng and CSI 300 are currently up 1.8% and 0.2% respectively, after Nikkei and ASX closed with losses of -1.1% and -0.2%, weighed down by financials data. GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.2% and 0.1%.
- Reuters reported that Chinese regulators have told financial institutions to extend more support to property developers to shore up the struggling real estate sector.
