US equity futures and global indexes fall

Texas News Today

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%.
