Stock dispute in the midst of the risk-off mood; Bond Retreat: Markets Wrap
Tuesday saw a risk-off flavor for the markets as European equities struggled after a decline in Asia as investors worried about trade, growth and geopolitics. A bond sell-off deepened, the dollar rose higher and oil stabilized.
The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slipped a second day before packing the decline amidst mixed national benchmarks. Earlier stock benchmarks fell in South Korea and Australia and were barely changed in Japan. In China and Hong Kong, there were mixed stocks after data
slowed down. US futures retreated, while the greenback was slightly higher as Treasury yields climbed above 3% again. The euro was stable, although the German growth data disappointed.
