Markets Wait For CPI Update From The U.S.

2 min read

Anxiety ahead of the release of the CPI update for January from the U.S. on Tuesday dominated market sentiment across regions. Headline and core CPI are both seen recording declines. Nervousness ahead of speeches by officials of Federal Reserve, Bank of England as well as Reserve Bank of Australia later in the day, also dampened sentiment.

Wall Street Futures appear clueless. Major European benchmarks are trading mixed. Asian shares closed mostly lower in thin holiday trade.

The Dollar Index edged up. Bond yields eased across regions. Crude oil prices corrected after a strong rally in the previous week. Gold prices edged lower. Cryptocurrencies witnessed declines.
