Stocks and Bonds: World


US stocks fell on Tuesday as early gains evaporated when momentum shares once again lost ground, overshadowing a jump in Coca-Cola and Johnson & Johnson after their quarterly earnings. The Nasdaq slid more than 1 percent, weighed down by another downturn in momentum names. In recent weeks, momentum names - stocks seen by investors as having high growth potential - have been under pressure after a meteoric rise in their prices took valuations to levels that appeared to be unsustainable.

US stocks closed higher on Monday as Citigroup's earnings and strong retail sales gave investors reasons to buy equities despite a resurgence of geopolitical uncertainties. Equities opened higher as strong results from Citigroup and bullish retail sales data lifted sentiment, though shares lost ground in the last hour of trading. Both the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 briefly turned negative, though they subsequently returned to positive territory.
Tokyo stocks rose 0.62 percent Tuesday after a rally on Wall Street and as the yen weakened against the dollar in response to upbeat US economic data. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 86.65 points to finish at 13,996.81, while the Topix index of all first-section shares climbed 0.29 percent, or 3.33 points, to 1,136.09. After heavy losses last week all three main indexes on Wall Street rallied Monday as traders welcomed a solid earnings report from Citigroup and encouraging retail sales data.
Britain's top shares sank to their lowest close in three weeks on Tuesday, hit by mining companies on concern about demand, while the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and doubts about corporate earnings hurt broader sentiment. Miners came under pressure alongside base metals after data showed Chinese money supply grew at the weakest pace in more than a decade in March, another sign of softening economic momentum in the world's top metals consumer.
European stocks sank on Tuesday, resuming last week's sell-off as worries over escalating tension in Ukraine and weak updates by bellwethers including Nestle spooked investors. Renewed concerns over the pace of growth in China ahead of GDP figures due on Wednesday also weighed on sentiment, with mining giants BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto losing 2 percent ant 3.1 percent respectively.
India's broader NSE index fell for a second consecutive session on Tuesday, marking its biggest fall since March 3, as interest-rate sensitive shares such as Housing Development Finance Corp fell after wholesale inflation accelerated more than expected. The wholesale price index (WPI) in March rose a much faster-than-expected 5.70 percent from a year earlier, marking a three-month high and coming well above the 5.30 percent increase forecast by economists.
Hong Kong and Chinese shares fell on Tuesday as investors ignored a rally on Wall Street ahead of the release of Chinese first quarter growth data. The benchmark Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong lost 1.60 percent, or 367.54 points, to 22,671.26 on turnover of HK$63.61 billion (US $8.20 billion). Wall Street provided a positive lead after last week's heavy losses on concerns about tech plays. The Dow rallied 0.91 percent and the S&P 500 gained 0.82 percent, while the Nasdaq, which lost more than three percent last week, added 0.57 percent.
