TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
With volumes low and markets skittish, global sovereign bonds have managed to extend their month’s gains ahead of July 4 celebrations stateside tomorrow on the back of weaker economic data. Equities have traded mixed in the overnight session as U.S ten-year Treasury note yields fall to their lowest yields in three-years on fading hopes over the Sino-U.S trade deal and the possibility of fresh tariff hostilities with Europe.
Providing strength to the markets ‘dovish’ tone is the nomination of Christine Lagarde to take the reins of the ECB later this year with many believing that she is willing to provide further market stimulus
