Markets Wait For Updates On Earnings, CPI

Market sentiment continued to be strong amidst the onset of the earnings season and ahead of the CPI update from the U.S. The recent dovish hints by Fed officials aided the Dollar’s retreat as well as the easing in U.S. bond yields.

Wall Street Futures are trading with gains. European benchmarks are trading on a positive note buoyed by the GDP growth readings from U.K. Asian stocks also continued to rise.

The Dollar’s retreat dragged the Dollar Index lower. Bond yields eased in the U.S. but hardened in Europe. Despite a large inventory build in the U.S., crude oil climbed up amidst support from Saudi Arabia and Russia. Gold extended gains, amidst Dollar weakness and lower bond yields. Cryptocurrencies extended losses.
