US MARKETS: The U.S. dollar slid against most major currencies, weighed down by expectations that the Federal Reserve is done cutting interest rates and could start cutting them by the first half of next year.
In U.S. Treasuries, benchmark 10-year notes fell steadily during the day and were last down 9.9 basis points to 4.385%, from 4.484% late on Friday. Investors were also looking ahead to Thursday’s release of the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation or PCE index and euro zone consumer inflation figures, to potentially give markets direction.
Meanwhile, the latest economic data showed that Building Permits were slightly above expectations, while New Home Sales aka new family home sales in the US fell more than expected in October, likely as higher mortgage rates reduced affordability, but the housing segment remains supported by a shortage of previously owned properties on the market.
EUROPE MARKETS: From Europe, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde said the European Central Bank’s fight to contain price growth was not yet done as wage growth was still strong and the outlook was uncertain, but she did point to easing euro zone inflation pressure.
ASIA MARKETS: Indonesia recorded money supply growth of 3.4% YoY in Oct, compared to 6% in the previous month. Japan will soon announce Bank Of Japan Core CPI which is expected to stabilize at 3.4% YoY.
COMMODITIES: Oil prices also fell, with the Brent settling under $80 a barrel, as investors awaited this week’s OPEC+ meeting and expected curbs on supplies into 2024. In precious metals, gold hit a six-month high with a boost from the softer dollar and expectations of a pause in the Fed’s monetary policy.
