Stocks in Asia opened higher today on Tuesday with the aid of boosted U.S. vaccination drive that has eased some anxieties over the economic impact of the delta strain. The dollar fell, commodities surged, and oil mounted. It is oil’s most significant hike in the past nine months, reacting to the reflation trade associated with the resurrection from the pandemic.

- Markets this week will be optimistic instead of the doubts over the recovery, unlike last week. Market participants are awaiting Jackson Hole for signs on the Federal Reserve plans to narrow its asset-purchase program. With the increased risk due to the delta variant, there is a question about policymakers’ hold off from signaling a timeframe for narrowed plans. Investors are also watching President Biden’s $4.1 trillion plan.
As per the managing director of trading at E*Trade Financial, amid one more record high on Monday, it’s unusual that the start of the week is on the upside. The gains in the last week were inadequate to make up for the losses resulting from the Fed’s intentions to narrow down its purchasing program. Investors will look for direction in Powell’s speech.
