The markets are in a risk-off mood on Wednesday as concerns about the economic outlook mount. The euro and pound sterling find themselves under pressure, while the dollar is strengthening. Treasury yields are also pulling back after hitting a new cycle high.
Market sentiment put in a decent bounce on Monday, with the Nasdaq futures continuing to grind higher (+0.40% at the time of writing). This is surprising given that US 10-year Treasury yields hit a new cycle high yesterday, and higher yields have been a key driver of recent negative risk sentiment.
The economic calendar is light today, with only US jobless claims and the Philadelphia Fed business index data scheduled for realase. However, even these minor data releases could have a big impact on the markets, given the current volatility.
