All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On September 24
Asian stocks rose Friday after U.S. shares rallied and sovereign bond yields surged on economic optimism and easing fears of contagion from China Evergrande Group’s debt crisis.
Equities climbed in Japan and South Korea and were steady in Australia. U.S futures edged up after the S&P 500’s biggest two-day gain since July. The Wall Street advance was led by economically-sensitive sectors like energy and financials, as investors embraced the view that a looming reduction in Federal Reserve stimulus shows confidence in the recovery from the pandemic.
The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, rose 0.17% to 17,857, as of 6:45 a.m.
The prospect of tighter monetary policy spurred a global selloff in bonds. Long-term Treasury yields surged the most in 18 months as traders brought forward their expectations for the first Fed rate hike to the end of 2022. The Bank of England opened the door to a 2021 rate increase, pushing down 10-year gilts. Yields also jumped on sovereign debt in Australia and New Zealand.
The dollar held a decline and oil sustained an advance. While the concerns about contagion radiating from Evergrande have receded somewhat, it remains unclear if Beijing plans to manage fallout from any potential default. The developer is buckling under more than $300 billion of liabilities amid China’s crackdown on property-sector leverage. Elsewhere, gold trimmed a slump and Bitcoin traded near $45,000.
