Markets Cautious Amidst Weak Data From China

Rating downgrades for 10 small and mid-sized banks in the U.S., double-digit decline in China’s trade numbers and anxiety ahead of the release of inflation numbers from China and U.S. dampened sentiment across markets.

Wall Street Futures are trading with losses. European benchmarks are trading near four-week lows, dragged down by the banking sector. Asian stock markets finished mostly lower, ahead of release of inflation readings from China.

Safe haven demand for the U.S. dollar lifted the Dollar Index. Bond yields declined across regions amidst fresh concerns about the banking sector. Crude oil prices weakened amidst disappointing trade data from China. Gold prices declined amidst the Dollar’s strength. Cryptocurrencies are trading mixed.
