EU Market View
Asian equity markets traded negatively following the tech sell-off in the US where the Nasdaq dropped 3% amid a jump in yields. European stock markets are seen opening largely lower Friday, following a sharp selloff in the tech sector on Wall Street while investors also fret about the increase in Covid-19 cases throughout the region. The tech index nasdaq closed 3% lower on Wall Street Thursday after a spike in U.S. bond yields on the back of the Federal Reserve’s dovish message prompted worries about owning these extremely highly-valued stocks that are likely to take a long time to generate meaningful amounts of cash.
The yield on benchmark 10yr Notes stood at 1.7% Friday, after spiking late Thursday to 1.75%, the highest since early 2020, a day after the Federal Reserve raised its growth and inflation forecasts but stated it would maintain its very accommodative monetary policies through 2023.
Looking ahead, highlights from macroeconomic calendar include Canadian retail sales, US-China meeting in Alaska, ECB's Panetta, WHO COVID-19 AstraZeneca update.

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?
