Inflation Spike Fuels Fed Fears- Dollar, Yields Surge; Stocks, Commodities, Cryptos Tumble

A surge in inflation in the U.S. to a fresh forty-year of 8.6 percent high spooked investor sentiment across global markets. The Covid situation in China, a slump in U.K.’s GDP readings, the Bank of England’s impending interest rate review, all dragged global markets lower.

Asian equity markets suffered heavy losses. European equity markets too are in a sea of red. Wall Street Futures imply a gap down opening. The Dollar Index surged as the Fed’s likely aggressive moves to combat inflation pushed the Dollar higher. Bond yields surged to reflect the increase in interest rate expectations. Crude Oil prices too declined as a spurt in Beijing’s Covid cases dashed hopes of a revival in oil demand. Gold dropped almost a percent amidst the surging Dollar. Cryptocurrencies plunged more than 10 percent overnight.
