Stocks and Bonds: World


The S&P and Dow were weaker on Friday as tensions in Ukraine escalated and investors got few clues about the course of interest rates from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen. Ukraine declared on Friday that Russia had launched a "direct invasion" of its territory after Moscow sent a convoy of trucks across the border into eastern Ukraine.

US stocks ended higher on Thursday, with the S&P 500 at a record after a flurry of positive economic data, as investors hoped for signs from an annual meeting of central bankers that interest-rate hikes are not imminent. The S&P 500 broke two records during Thursday's session, climbing past its previous intraday all-time high of 1,991.39 and ending above its previous record close of 1,987.98. Both had been set on July 24. Investors are anticipating that the benchmark index will touch the 2,000 level, which it has yet to breach.
Tokyo stocks fell 0.30 percent Friday as caution prevailed ahead of a key speech by US Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen. The Nikkei 225 index lost 47.01 points to 15,539.19 after nine consecutive days of gains. The Topix index of all first-section issues was down 0.40 percent, or 5.12 points, at 1,286.07. The Tokyo market opened higher after the S&P index logged another record close on Wall Street.
Britain's top equity index slipped off three-week highs on Friday, with mining stocks among the worst performers as weak metals prices weighed on the sector. The blue-chip FTSE 100 index closed down by 2.41 points - flat in percentage terms - at 6,775.25 points. The London stock market is closed for a public holiday on Monday. Gold and silver miner Fresnillo was the worst-performing FTSE 100 stock in percentage terms, falling 1.8 percent as the price of gold remained stuck near a two-month low.
European shares fell on Friday after a brisk two-week rally, hurt by a ratcheting-up of tensions in Ukraine, although traders said a dovish tone in a speech by US Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen limited losses. Souring the mood, Ukraine declared that Russia had launched a "direct invasion" of its territory after Moscow sent a convoy of aid trucks across the border into eastern Ukraine where pro-Russian rebels are fighting government forces.
The cheapest valuations in almost a decade relative to the rest of Europe are failing to attract investors to Germany's stock market as confidence ebbs in the region's largest and most stable economy. Germany's DAX, the euro zone's best-performing stock market in the five years since Lehman Brothers collapsed, is lagging all other major markets so far this year.
India's NSE index rose on Friday to a record high for the fourth time this week as software stocks gained after upbeat US and German data raised optimism about the sector's business outlook, while higher global shares also helped. US data, including a jump in existing home sales and a drop in initial jobless claims helped push the S&P 500 to a record high on Thursday. European shares also gained in the previous session after better-than-expected German private sector growth figures.
