Global Market Trends

Renewed fears of recession amid weak economic data in the United States dampened sentiment across the world markets. Data released on Wednesday showed retail sales and producer price inflation fell more than expected in December. Investors also weighed hawkish comments from central bank officials as well as the latest corporate earnings.

Asian stocks ended mixed. Major European benchmarks are trading in negative territory. Wall Street futures are showing losses at the open.

The Dollar Index continued its bearish sentiment. Bond yields evolved in a mixed way. Crude oil prices fell as U.S. industry data showed an unexpected rise in inventories. Gold rose slightly. Cryptocurrencies have declined.
