World Market Trends At 7 A.M. ET

Here is a snapshot of the global markets across stocks, currencies, commodities, bonds and cryptocurrencies.

Asian stocks finished in the red as Chinese property sector debt woes re-emerged. European stocks were mixed as earnings, inflation, supply chain etc. impacted sentiment. American stock futures appeared indecisive in an anxious wait for the Fed’s pronouncements on monetary policy review and stimulus tapering. Dollar Index remained resilient. Bond yields declined on hopes the Fed would downplay inflation in its current policy review. Reserve Bank of Australia’s status quo on rates too helped cool down yields.
