EU Market View
Asian equity markets traded mostly higher; Nikkei 225 outperformed on the back of the weaker JPY. A rally in Asia put global equities on track for a seventh day of gains as investors bet the U.S. will lead the world out of the COVID-19 crisis, with the focus turning to a multi-trillion-dollar spending boost by the Biden administration. The New York Times reported that President Biden will seek $6 trillion in federal spending for the 2022 fiscal year. Meanwhile, the number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits plunged to the lowest since March 2020, data Thursday on showed, with companies desperate for workers to meet higher demand unleashed by a reopening economy.
The dollar moves higher in early European trade Friday, helped by rising U.S. bond yields ahead of the release of key inflation data. The dollar jumped as U.S. President Joe Biden proposed a $6 trillion budget for 2022 on Friday as the country continues its economic recovery from COVID-19. Moreover, the dollar hit a seven-week peak against the yen and firmed on other majors as traders braced for what is expected to be a robust U.S. inflation figure on Friday. The yuan has been another outperformer and has been appreciated this week as China's central bank has not pushed back too hard against appreciation, while flows in to stock and bond markets continue.
Gold is trading lower this morning in Asia as higher dollar and rising U.S. yields pressured the yellow metal. Investors also await crucial U.S. inflation data that will be released later in the day. Looking ahead, highlights include the EZ Sentiment Survey, US PCE, Chicago PMI.

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? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
