US & European markets managed to close last week in positive territory, as Treasury yields consolidated and investors digested a number of economic data, which managed to slightly erase global concerns over the rising interest rate trend that is likely to last until the end of the year. The S&P Global Composite PMI (Feb.) released last Friday concluded that US economic is entering an expansionary zone at 50.1 ( an increase from the previous month’s 46.8); supported by high growth in Services PMI (Feb.) at 50.6 (exceeding forecast of 50.5 & Jan. data at 46.8). US Treasuries halted its rally as the 10-year yield left the 4%, dropping to 3.960%, from Thursday’s high of 4.091%. The 2-year yield, also contracted 4.3 bps to 4.859%.

The expansion in Eurozone business activity was also reflected in their Composite PMI (Feb.) figure, which crept up to 52 (vs. the previous 50.3); as was noticeable in PMI growth in France, Germany, and the UK. Germany’s Trade Balance (Jan.) managed to pocket a surplus of EUR 16.7 billion, much higher than the EUR 11 billion forecast or the previous month’s EUR 10 billion. However, Eurozone government bond yields are still hovering around yearly highs after their CPI data boosted market expectations that the ECB will bring the benchmark interest rate peak to 4%. The benchmark 10-year German government bond is at 2.688%, the highest level since 2011. Asian stock markets were also green on the back of optimism for China’s economic growth as reflected in the Caixin Services PMI data (Feb.) which rose to 55 (stronger than forecast 54.7 & Jan. position at 52.9). Japan managed to tame its Inflation rate to 3.3% YoY (Feb.) from 4.3% (Jan.), a 40-year high.
