Overly Complacent? Nvidia pulls markets higher exaggerate

Good Morning,

Welcome to the last trading day of the first Quarter and the finale of the Japanese fiscal year.

Equities and Risk on sentiment wavered yesterday and indexes fell. The lack of any real progress in Ukraine disappoints and there was little basis for optimism. Inflation is rising and calling for action. The Dow  fell 0.19%, the S&P 500 0.63%, and the Nasdaq 1.21%, the USD Index fell to below 98, yields fall 20 bps from Mondays high to trade at 2.35 (10 Year) EURUSD is trading at 1.1167 and GBPUSD 1.3130.

Bitcoin is holding at 47k and Ethereum at 3390 Bitcoin has recovered 42% off the quarters low. Gold and silver receded to 1923 and 24.60.

Over the last few days, risky assets saw massive inflows of funds and made up for a decent part of the quarters losses, it will ne interesting to see how today plays out. Goldman Sachs continues to expect massive inflows to the equity markets as there is USD 15 Trillion in cash on the sidelines.

The US is considering releasing up to 180 million barrels of oil over several months driving oil lower to 108 in the UK line.

European Goverments are advising their citizens to reduce energy consumption to get ready for a suspension of Russian energy deliveries.

Chinese PMI contracted in March for the first time 2020, adding to the urgency for more policy intervention to stabilize the economy.

Negotiations in Ukraine are set to continue tomorrow so economic data and unscheduled news from Urkaine should be the key market movers along with quarter end moves.

Economic data today is the Swiss Retail Sales at 8:30, the Official Reserves at 9:00, German and EU Unemployment at 9:55 and 11:00 and US Employment and PCE data at 14:30. Lastly he Chicago PMI at 15:45.
