Stocks and Bonds: World


US stocks eased on Wednesday as a pair of weaker-than-expected economic indicators spurred concerns over economic growth ahead of Friday's jobs report. Leading the decline were some of the sectors with the strongest gains in the first quarter. The S&P health care sector fell 1.6 percent. It was the strongest sector in the first quarter, appreciating 6.2 percent.

US stocks fell on Tuesday as energy and healthcare shares retreated, but the S&P 500 and Nasdaq registered their ninth straight quarterly advance. The S&P's 500 quarterly winning streak was its longest since 1998, while the Nasdaq's was its longest ever. The Dow registered a slight loss for the quarter.
Tokyo stocks fell 0.90 percent on Wednesday after a disappointing business confidence survey showed Japanese firms are increasingly pessimistic about a rebound in the world's number three economy. The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange dropped 172.15 points to finish at 19,034.84, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares gave up 0.92 percent, or 14.12 points, to 1,528.99.
Britain's top share index bounced back on Wednesday, with data showing the country's manufacturing sector grew at the fastest pace in eight months, prompting investors to buy equities on the first trading day of the quarter. Online fashion retailer ASOS gained after saying its strategy of cutting prices in international markets was building momentum.
European shares began the quarter with gains on Wednesday, after data showed manufacturing activity across the euro zone accelerated faster than previously estimated last month. Markit's final March manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) reached a 10-month high of 52.2, beating a preliminary reading of 51.9 to provide another sign the bloc's economy is recovering.
Indian shares rose on Wednesday, posting their first weekly gain in four and the biggest since January 23 week, as banks rallied ahead of the central bank's policy review, while Sun Pharmaceutical Industries and Ranbaxy Laboratories surged ahead of a planned merger.
Chinese stocks jumped to fresh seven-year highs on Wednesday on hopes that the country's troubled factory sector was regaining traction, and as retail investors continued to flock to Asia's best performing market betting on further gains. An official factory survey showed activity expanded in March for the first time in three months, although growth was marginal and orders remained weak, reinforcing calls for further policy easing by the government to bolster a slowing economy.
