NEWS


European stocks continued to make progress on Tuesday after some well received earnings added to the gains off the back of the passing of Joe Biden’s $1.9 billion stimulus bill. German stocks were leading the charge with the benchmark DAX index hitting a fresh record high.

 

The leaders and laggards flipped around on Wall Street with tech stocks rebounding from heavy losses on Monday, while cyclical stocks like Caterpillar dipped. Tesla led the charge with a massive 19% daily gain helped by famed fund manager Cathie Wood buying more Tesla stock for the ARK Innovation ETF.

 

The US dollar dropped back from a 3 ½ month high as US Treasury yields fell back under 1.6%. EUR/USD bounced to 1.19 while GBP hit 1.39 but both ended just off highs. Today key US CPI data for February could determine whether the rising inflation expectations that drove up yields and the dollar is considered justified or overdone.
