On Tuesday, US equity markets climbed significantly as a result of Russia’s determination to engage in talks with Ukraine and begin reducing troop operations surrounding the city of Kyiv. The S&P 500 index increased by 1.13 percent, the Nasdaq 100 increased by 1.62 percent, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased by 0.90 percent.
On the other hand, market players continue to be concerned about the potential of recession, owing to the higher short-term US bond yields relative to long-term US bond yields. While the 2-year yield on US Treasuries is technically equal to the 10-year yield, the intersection of the 5-year yield curve has exceeded the 10-year or even 30-year yield, as it did in 2006, precipitating the Great Recession in 2008.
This existence will undoubtedly weaken the US Dollar index in the future, but it will rebound again as a result of the Fed’s aggressive monetary policy this year. Commodity prices are beginning to fall as the Russian invasion of Ukraine subsides, putting pressure on the Australian dollar soon.
