Major world stock markets rose and government bond yields fell on Tuesday as a combination of strong corporate profits, steady global growth and low inflation provide scant alternatives for investors other than equities. Stocks markets from Asia to Europe to the Americas rose, with technology stocks boosting the Nasdaq Composite index to a record intra-day high.

The U.S. dollar fell and was poised for its worst week in more than a year while world stock markets edged up on Friday amid some calm following declines earlier in the week spurred by uncertainty relating to Donald Trump's U.S. presidency. The U.S. dollar slipped 0.7 percent on Friday and was down about 2 percent for the week, its worst week since April 2016. It has been the most eventful week of the year so far for investors, with leading world equity markets scaling record highs and then plunging in one of the sharpest cross-asset routs in years.
Wall Street rebounded on Thursday from its biggest sell-off in more than eight months, helped by strong U.S. economic data, but uncertainty over U.S. President Donald Trump's agenda kept an index of global equity markets near a three-week low. The U.S. dollar reversed early losses against a basket of major currencies after stronger-than-expected U.S. economic data put the focus back on a widely anticipated increase in interest rates by the Federal Reserve.
Stocks rose on Wall Street on Thursday, capping a wave of declines in major world equity markets triggered by uncertainty over U.S. President Donald Trump's agenda, with the U.S. dollar also recovering slightly after five days of losses. Reports that Trump had tried to intervene in an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in last year's U.S. presidential election, and that his aides had numerous undisclosed contacts with Russian officials, kept market tensions high a day after the S&P 500 posted its largest drop since September. The Justice Department on Wednesday named former FBI chief Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow.
