Japanese stocks rallied, while Hong Kong and China were more subdued as traders assessed the potential impact of Covid outbreaks in Shenzhen and Macao.

The fall in bonds led the 10-year benchmark yield to 3.30%. Further bond instability, in the wake of the Federal Reserve raising interest rates sharply to curb inflation, could shake global markets again.

Australia’s yields offset the rise – central bank governor Philip Lowe reiterated that further rate hikes were possible, but pushed expectations for a 75 basis point move in July.

The dollar fell and the yen fluctuated near the 24-year low, falling from the opposition between the super-Dobank Bank of Japan and the hawk Fed.

In commodities, oil has risen, while prices for metals such as copper have been hit by concerns about demand prospects amid weakening global growth.

“There may be a rumor that we have bottomed out, we are oversold, the Fed is taking inflation seriously and that may be slightly up in the interim,” Frances Stacy, Optimal Capital’s director of strategy, told Bloomberg TV.

However, investors are still facing a bad long-term outlook. St. Louis Fed Chairman James Boulard has warned that US inflation expectations could be “dampened without credible action by the Fed,” while former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers said the country’s unemployment rate should rise above 5% for a fixed period in order to reduce the price. pressures.

Earlier, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde reiterated officials’ intention to raise interest rates in July and September, signaling that concerns over financial market tensions were not derailing the fight against inflation.

Elsewhere, Bitcoin retained more than $ 20,000 after a turbulent period for cryptocurrencies.
