EU Market View
Asian equities traded with a mild positive bias following on from the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 notching fresh record highs. European stock markets are seen opening mixed Wednesday, largely continuing the positive global trend on the back of falling bond yields as U.S. inflation concerns eased, although other concerns over Covid-19 remain.

Wall Street ended mostly higher Tuesday, with the broad-based SP500 posting another record close, and Asian stock markets have largely followed suit as key U.S. Treasury yields fell to a fresh three-week low after data showed U.S. inflation was not spiralling out of control.
The U.S. CPI rose 0.6% in March, the biggest increase since August 2012, but the market had seemingly positioned for a higher figure as rising vaccinations and fiscal stimulus released pent-up demand.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop?
