(MENAFN- Emirates News Agency (WAM))
NEW YORK, 25th June, 2022 (WAM) -- Stocks on global markets rallied on Friday and registered strong gains for the week as a recent slide in commodity prices eased worries about inflation and the rate hike outlook, Reuters reported.
The S & P 500 climbed 3.1% in its biggest daily percentage gain since May 2020, and the MSCI global index rose 4.8% for the week, snapping three straight weeks of declines.
US Treasury yields edged up from two-week lows.
Investors have been worried that aggressive interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve and other major central banks to combat inflation could cause a recession, which would reduce demand for commodities and other items.
