U.S. Equity Markets closed mixed following a volatile trading session in which the S&P had a 130 Handle range. Although the Small Cap Russell 2000 closed 1.60% lower the NASDAQ 100 rebounded ending yesterday’s session with a small 0.79% gain. Investors poured into the safety of gold and government bonds following the SVB collapse, sending yields plummeting. Additionally, market expectations for the Federal Reserve’s interest-rate path dramatically dipped, with investors now seeing a terminal rate below 4.75%. This is almost a full 100 basis points lower than the rate expectation that followed Jerome Powell’s speech last week. A joint statement by the Fed, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the U.S. Department of the Treasury noted all SVB depositors will have full access to their funds. The U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics is scheduled to release February’s Consumer Price Index (“CPI”) figures this week, providing a key update on the state of inflation. Within the S&P 500 Index, four of the 11 sectors finished lower. European Markets got slammed. The European Central Bank (“ECB”) is expected to raise interest rates during its March policy meeting on Thursday, as it attempts to battle a fragile economic landscape and persistently high inflation. Euro-Zone  bond markets rallied as yields dropped due to a massive adjustment in the rate outlook following the SVB collapse. HSBC announced that it will buy the U.K. arm of SVB as it attempts to boost confidence in the financial system that was plagued with volatility over the weekend. U.K. Business Confidence reached its highest level since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, according to a survey by Accenture and S&P Global.

Japan’s Fourth Quarter Business Sentiment Index declined for the first time in a year as manufacturers were hit by higher materials and energy costs. China’s February Credit grew faster than expected as the Money Supply expanded at the quickest pace in nearly seven years, supporting the nation’s economic recovery. China unexpectedly broke from tradition as President Jinping retained both Yi Gang, as governor of the People’s Bank of China, and Lie Kun, as Finance Minister, despite both reaching official retirement age. Elsewhere, Oil fell 2.92% while Gold surged 2.70%.
