Relief Rally Fizzles As Markets Fret Again Over Fed Fury

05/06/2022 - 06:46:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The euphoria of a Fed action on expected lines vanished from global markets amidst renewed fears of an aggressive action by the Fed to tame persistent inflation.

Asian and European stock markets tracked the Wall Street's massive losses on Thursday. Wall Street futures are also trading in negative territory. The Dollar Index has retreated modestly. Bond yields continued to increase to reflect the increased cost of borrowing. Crude prices continued to surge amidst supply concerns ignited by the E.U.'s proposed ban on Russian oil. Gold is trading in mild positive territory. Cryptocurrencies tumbled again.

Markets are awaiting April's Nonfarm Payrolls data, due Friday, to gauge the achievement on the Fed's maximum employment goal and to assess the impact thereof on the Fed's interest rate lift off plan.

Here is a snapshot of the world markets at this hour across stocks, currencies, bonds, commodities and cryptocurrencies.
