Bloomberg.- Global equity markets remained fragile on Wednesday, with U.S. stock futures falling, European gauges rising and Asian shares paring a gain as measures of volatility hovered at double their levels of two weeks ago. Treasury yields eased and crude slipped.
Traders hoping for stability instead saw futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average swing in a 360-point range, while the MSCI Asia Pacific Index almost completely erased a gain of as much as 2.4 percent. The March contract on the S&P 500 was down 0.3 percent after earlier falling as much as 1.25 percent, and the Cboe Volatility Index stood at 29.44, little changed from yesterday.
Markets from Europe to Japan tumbled into oversold territory after the rout of the past week, which was triggered by rising bond yields and the prospects for a return of inflation and subsequent tighter monetary policy. Amid a slew of calls to “buy the dip,” investors will be watching Wednesday’s auction of 10-year Treasuries for clues on where markets go from here.
Elsewhere, oil gave up earlier gains and Bitcoin edged higher, rising above $8,000.
