European stocks are expected to open higher on Tuesday as the U.S. dollar stood near a thirteen and a half year high and treasury yields continued to rise as traders anticipate President-elect Donald Trump's policies will stoke inflation. London's FTSE 100 is seen up 26 points at 6,780, the French CAC is called 25 points higher at 4,538, while the German DAX is expected to open 40 points stronger at 10,745. The dollar index – which measures the greenback against a basket of currencies – was around $99.879 in Asia trade. It had risen to 100.22 earlier. If it manages to break the 100.51 mark that it reached in December 2015, this would mark the highest level since 2003. U.S. 10-year Treasury yields also continued to tick up. More»

Asia markets traded mixed, with the Nikkei continuing its third straight session of gains, likely due to a boost from the weaker yen and better-than-expected Japanese economic data. The Nikkei 225 jumped 1.78 percent, following the release of Japan's third-quarter gross domestic product (GDP), which showed the economy grew 2.2 percent year-on-year, beating a Reuters poll estimate of 0.9 percent. The yen remained weak against the dollar early in Asia, with the dollar fetching 107.38 yen as of 11:25 am HK/SIN, compared with levels around 104 on election day in the U.S. last week. Down Under, the benchmark ASX 200 closed down 0.47 percent, or 25.04 points, at 5,345.7, weighed by its materials subindex, which was down 1.31 percent, and its financials subindex, which fell 0.53 percent. Australia's major banks Westpac and ANZ fell 3.17 percent and 1.45 percent respectively, as they traded ex-dividend. Major gold miners were also lower; Newcrest Mining was down 7.08 percent, Northern Star Resources slipped 9.16 percent and Evolution Mining shed 9.65 percent. The ASX Gold subindex was 7.94 percent lower as gold's appeal as a safe haven continued to lose traction post-Trump's win. More»

European markets are expected to open higher on Monday, shrugging off broadly lower trade in Asia, amid a tick-up in bond yields and the U.S. dollar that is stoking risk appetite. London's FTSE 100 is called up 49 points at 6,779, the German DAX is expected to open 75 points higher at 10,742, while the French CACis seen 31 points to the good at 4,520. The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of currencies, was trading around 99.579 on Monday, up 0.52 percent. It comes on the back of a sell-off in U.S. Treasuries, with yields on the 10-year note up 2.2 percent, their highest level since January. Chris Weston, chief market strategist at IG Index, said that sentiment towards being short U.S. Treasuries and emerging markets, but long the dollar has been driven by the "central thematic of reflation, nationalism and de-regulation" coming out of U.S. President Donald Trump's administration.

Stocks in Shanghai entered a bull market but other Asian markets stuttered on Friday as the rally in the dollar following Donald Trump's win in the U.S. presidential election dampened demand for emerging market assets. The dollar index traded down 0.12 percent at 98.664 as of 2:45 pm HK/SIN, but had touched 99.081, its highest level in more than two weeks, during U.S. hours. The dollar strength stemmed from the ongoing sell-off in U.S. Treasurys and the steepening of the yield curve after the U.S. election results. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note climbed to 2.1378 percent as of 1:45 pm HK/SIN compared to yields at around 1.8 percent earlier this week. The 30-year Treasury bond's yield was up to 2.9453 percent, its highest level since January 12. Chinese markets shrugged off weakness in many other Asian markets. The Shanghai composite ended up 0.78 percent, or 24.6 points, at 3,195.88, climbing more than 20 percent from the lows hit in January. The Shenzhen composite finished up 0.531 percent, or 11.14 points, at 2,108.03. Hong Kong's Hang Seng shed 1.45 percent in afternoon trade. More»

U.S. equities closed mostly higher on Friday, with the three major indexes posting their best weekly gains of the year on the back of a surprise Republican sweep. "I think you're seeing a transition from a government that had its thumb on growth to a free economy," said Bruce Bittles, chief investment strategist at Baird. "We're now looking at an economy that can reach its full potential." The Dow Jones industrial average closed about 37 points higher, with Goldman Sachs contributing the most gains. For the week, the Dow rose around 5.4 percent, marking its best weekly performance since December 2011. "The Republican sweep across Washington should pave the way for tax reform at both the individual and corporate level. America's largest multinational companies will almost assuredly have the opportunity to repatriate some of its foreign cash holdings for a modest penalty," said Jeremy Klein, chief market strategist at FBN Securities.

Asia markets soared on Thursday with the Nikkei jumping close to 7 percent, as traders reassessed the economic impact of Donald Trump's victory in the U.S. presidential election. The Nikkei 225 jumped 6.95 percent as the yen weakened against the dollar, trading at 105.62 as of 1:30 pm HK/SIN. The dollar/yen had plunged to 101 levels on Wednesday. "U.S. yields surged higher on the back of expected increased fiscal spending by Trump. This has helped the dollar rally sharply against other currencies but especially the low yielding yen and the euro," Anthony Darvall, chief market strategist at easyMarkets, said in a note on Thursday. "A weaker yen has helped propel Japanese stocks up...completely erasing yesterday's losses." More»

Asian stock markets tumbled and investors scrambled into assets perceived to be safe on nervousness over the outcome of the U.S. presidential election. Japan's Nikkei 225 tanked 5.36 percent, or 919.84 points, at 16,251.54, as the yen, regarded as a safe haven currency, strengthened amid nervousness over the vote.

The previous record was 1.53 million on 24 June when the U.K. referendum result was announced. "Markets are in all out panic mode that President Trump could become a reality. Trump has taken the key battleground states of Ohio and Florida. If Trump does win this election then the pollsters may have wrong-footed the markets once again," said Kathleen Brooks, research director at City Index, in a note on Wednesday. More»
