Consumer prices rose 3.4% from March and 55.8% from a year ago, according to government figures published Wednesday. Argentine bond investors welcomed the news, with dollar bonds due 2028 falling as much as 16 basis points to 11.02%, according to prices compiled by Bloomberg. Argentine central bank President Guido Sandleris said Wednesday that April inflation represented "a significant drop" from the previous month and that he expects inflation to continue to slow.
Yields as measured by the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Treasuries Index have risen from this year’s low of 1.15 percent in late March to 1.27 percent on Tuesday. In a sign of just how pessimistic the bond market is on the economic outlook, government bonds globally rallied unusually hard after a small miss in a second-tier German economic report on business sentiment, with yields on that nation’s 10-year bonds dropping back below zero. Bond yields throughout the euro zone fell as well.

U.S. stocks rose to a new record on Thursday, prompting President Donald Trump to mark the occasion with a tweet that, in part, said "Congratulations USA!" That's all well and good, but what investors really care about is relative performance, as in how one asset, security or market is performing or valued relative to others. In that sense, U.S. stocks are suddenly falling short. Although the S&P 500 Index has gained about 1.50 percent since Sept. 11, the MSCI All-Country World Index of equities excluding those from the U.S. has jumped 3.71 percent.
The selloff pummeling emerging market currencies shifted to stocks as contagion concerns weighed on risk assets and President Donald Trump threatened to impose tariffs on an additional $267 billion of Chinese goods.
Argentina has a new refrain: 30 — it’s a magic number. Just after President Mauricio Macri completed 30 months in office, inflation looks set to jump to a staggering 30 percent by the end of the year. It’s all an unfortunate confluence for Macri, who swept to office in 2015 vowing to jump-start the economy by enticing foreign investment and slashing inflation.
