    Stocks Signal Worries Easing; Yields Tick Higher: Markets Wrap

    Japanese stocks led gains in Asia and U.S. futures advanced as investors digested the recession-risk signals emanating from U.S. Treasuries that sparked a sell-off Friday. Korea’s benchmark was weighed down by a Samsung Electronics Co. warning on memory-chip prices, while Chinese shares declined and Hong Kong’s fluctuated. “It’s premature to talk about the yield curve meaning that we have to go into recession,” Philip Wyatt, a Hong Kong-based economist for UBS Group AG, said on Bloomberg Television.

    Global Markets: Asian shares tick up as U.S. bond yields come off late-2017 lows

    Asian shares drifted higher on Tuesday after two days of losses as U.S. 10-year Treasury yields edged up, but the outlook remained murky as investors weighed the odds of whether the U.S. economy is in danger of slipping into recession. European and U.S. equity markets were expected to follow Asia's lead, spreadbetters showed, with London's FTSE futures up 0.3 percent and E-minis for the S&P 500 tacking on one-third of a percent. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rebounded 0.2 percent after losing 1.4 percent in the previous session.

    Nikkei rallies on short-covering, buying before ex-dividend

    Japan's Nikkei bounced from five-week lows to close sharply higher on Tuesday as cyclical stocks rose on short-covering following a sell-off the previous day driven by fears of a sharp global economic slowdown. With the end of the business year looming on March 31 for a majority of listed Japanese companies, the market was also underpinned by investor purchases of stocks before they go ex-dividend later in the day. On Monday, benchmark 10-year Treasury yields fell to their lowest levels since December 2017, while the yield curve between three-month bills and 10-year notes inverted further as investors continued to assess last week's dovish pivot by the U.S. Federal Reserve.

    U.S. Treasury yields hit lowest since late 2017, global stocks fall

    Benchmark U.S. Treasury debt yields fell to their lowest since late 2017 on Monday and a gauge of world stocks dropped for a second straight session on persistent concerns over global economic growth. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield fell below 2.4 percent for the first time since December 2017. Investors were still digesting weak U.S. factory data last week that prompted an inversion of the U.S. Treasury yield curve, which is widely seen as an indicator of an economic recession.

    On Friday, the spread between yields of U.S. three-month Treasury bills exceeded those of 10-year notes for the first time since 2007.

"Insurers react negatively as it becomes harder for them to manage assets," said Eiji Kinouchi, chief technical analyst at Daiwa Securities.

    Here's How the Shake-Out Is Reverberating Around Global Markets

    As bond yields in Australia and New Zealand plumbed all-time lows in Monday trading, Asian stocks are heading for the biggest slide of 2019 and measures of market volatility are surging, albeit off low levels. MSCI’s gauge of Asia-Pacific shares was down about 2 percent as of 1:20 p.m. Monday in Hong Kong, set for the largest drop since October. The Nikkei Stock Average Volatility Index jumped as much as 31 percent, the most since October, and the equivalent gauge for Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index climbed 11 percent, though the low starting point highlights how placid things had become prior to Friday.

    Asian shares sink, tracking Friday's retreat on Wall Street

    Shares tumbled in Asia on Monday after Wall Street ended last week with a broad retreat, while Thailand's market saw a moderate loss following a general election that appeared likely to keep the incumbent, junta-backed prime minister in power. Thailand's SET dropped 0.9 percent after a military-backed party won the most votes in the country's first election since a 2014 coup after tilting the electoral system in its favor. The outcome is likely to add to nearly two decades of political instability in Thailand.

    Asian Markets Lower on U.S. Recession Concerns, but Fed’s Evans Says Economy is in Strong Position

    The major Asia/Pacific stock indexes are down sharply on Monday amid concerns over a potential recession in the United States. The move is being fueled by an inversion of part of the Treasury yield curve. Most importantly, Evans said it’s a good time for the U.S. central bank to pause and adopt a cautious stance even though the economy remains in a strong position.

    The Japanese yen hovered near a six-week high on Monday while Asian shares are expected to start lower as risk assets fell out of favor on growing worries about an impending U.S. recession, sending global bond yields plunging. Investors also kept one eye on the details of a nearly two-year U.S. investigation which found no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump's election team and Russia, in a major political victory for the U.S. President. U.S. stock futures were marginally higher during early Asian hours.
