US stock futures have fallen, and Wall Street’s index shows an extension of this week’s volatile trading will pull back from yesterday’s gains.
S&P 500 futures fell 0.7% and Dow Jones Industrial Average futures fell 0.6%. Changes in futures do not necessarily predict what will happen after the market opens.
In Europe, the Stocks Europe 600 fell 1.1% in morning trading, driven by declines in the health and real estate sectors.
The UK’s FTSE 100, dominated by large international companies, fell 0.9%. France’s CAC 40 is down 1.3%, the UK’s FTSE 250 is down 0.7%, and Germany’s DAX is down 1.2%, so other European stock indexes are down nearly as well.
The Swiss franc, euro and pound sterling fell 0.1%, 0.2% and 0.4%, respectively, against the dollar.
Among commodities, Brent crude rose 0.6% to $83.07 a barrel. Gold was down 0.7% at $1,748.80 per troy ounce.
The German 10-year bond yield rose to minus 0.150% and the UK 10-year bond yield rose to 1.143%. The US Treasury’s 10-year yield has been raised from 1.528% to 1.566%. Bond prices and yields move in opposite directions.
Asian equities fell almost all the way through the session as Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index rose 0.6% and then fell 0.6%, and Japan’s Nikkei 225 index rose 1.4% and then fell 1.1%.
