World Market Trends

World markets traded lackluster on Tuesday amidst renewed fears of a recession and anxiety about the demand outlook from China. Meanwhile, data showed German investor morale at an eleven-month high but did not suffice to lift sentiment at the European bourses.

Asian stocks mostly finished lower. European benchmarks are trading in negative territory. Wall Street Futures too portend losses on opening.

The Dollar Index rebounded from the seven-month low touched on Monday. Bond yields moved mixed. Crude oil prices remained clueless ahead of the monthly demand forecasts from OPEC and the International Energy Agency. Gold declined amidst the Dollar’s rebound. Cryptocurrencies extended the rally.
