Today’s Announcements & News

Asia

On Tuesday, Hong Kong stocks led the decline in Asia-Pacific markets, with the Hang Seng index closing 2.69% lower at 17,331.22. Earlier in the session, it had fallen by more than 3%. Meanwhile, in Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 traded down 1.28% to close at 6,943.4 after the central bank maintained rates at 4.10%, as expected. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 dropped 1.64% to close at 31,237.94. South Korean and Chinese markets were closed for holidays. In the U.S., the Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.22%, the S&P 500 inched up 0.01%, and the Nasdaq Composite rose by 0.67% in overnight trading.

US

On Tuesday, stocks experienced a significant decline as Treasury yields reached their highest levels since 2007. This raised concerns that higher interest rates could negatively impact the housing market and potentially lead the economy into a recession.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 454 points, representing a 1.3% decline. This was its largest drop since March. S&P 500 slid 1.4%, reaching its lowest level since June.

Nasdaq Composite saw a 2% drop, with growth stocks being particularly affected by the rising rates.

This decline pushed the Dow into negative territory for the year, while the broader S&P 500, despite the drop, remained up 10% for 2023.

Commodity

Oil prices saw a slight recovery on Tuesday after reaching a three-week low. Brent crude oil futures were down 10 cents, trading at $90.61 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude gained 37 cents to reach $89.19 per barrel. Prices had earlier fallen to $87.76, the weakest since September 12.

This recovery came as the U.S. dollar strengthened to a 10-month high against major peers, and economic data fueled expectations that the Federal Reserve might keep rates higher for a longer duration or even raise them further.

In the gold market, prices remained near a seven-month low, with spot gold down 0.3% at $1,822.42 per ounce and U.S. gold futures shedding 0.4% to reach $1,840.00 per ounce. These declines were attributed to a strong dollar and elevated bond yields, reflecting the belief that U.S. interest rates would remain higher for an extended period.
