The S&P 500 broke to 1-month highs yesterday, but printed its smallest daily range in over seven sessions – indicating that the recent rally is losing momentum.
While in Asia, stocks have been mixed with the Hong Kong’s Hang Seng dropping more than -1% and Japan’s Nikkei 225 bouncing +0.47%.
Russia is set to resume supplies of gas to mainland Europe today at reduced capacity following a 10-day maintenance break – easing fears of a retaliatory gas cut in response to Europe’s military support of Ukraine.
