(Bloomberg) -- Stocks and bonds sold off after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell underwhelmed markets by refraining from pushing back more forcefully against the recent spike in Treasury yields.The S&P 500 erased its gains for 2021, while benchmark 10-year bond rates topped 1.5% as Powell said he’d be “concerned” by disorderly markets, but stopped short of offering specific steps to curb heightened volatility. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 extended its losses from a February peak to 10%, and the Russell 2000 of small caps tumbled more than 4%. The dollar climbed.The recent spike in Treasury yields has roiled global markets amid concern that bets on stronger economic growth could fuel an increase in consumer prices. For Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group, the Fed has put itself in a “tough situation,” and the only way out is if inflation doesn’t rise any further, remaining below the 2% target.“We are again seeing a market that is taking control of monetary policy from the Fed,” Boockvar said. “Long rates are rising right now because Powell is again very dovish. The more dovish they get in the face of market expectations of higher inflation, the more financial tightening we’ll see.”Read: Powell Says ‘Disorderly’ Market Conditions Would Concern HimDespite the lingering uncertainties about the impacts of rising bond yields, such fears are “misplaced,” according to Candice Bangsund, portfolio manager of global asset allocation at Fiera Capital.“As long as the back-up in bond yields reflects stronger growth expectations (versus tighter monetary policy), then the long-term bull market will not be at risk,” she said. “The latest normalization in bond yields should be viewed as an encouraging sign that growth is healing, while the prospect for a hawkish turn from the Federal Reserve is clearly not in the cards today.”Some key events to watch this week:The February U.S. employment report on Friday will provide an update on the speed and direction of the nation’s labor market recovery.These are some of the mains moves in markets:StocksThe S&P 500 fell 2.4% at 2 p.m. New York time.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index fell 0.4%.The MSCI Asia Pacific Index dipped 2.6%.The MSCI Emerging Market Index declined 2.8%.CurrenciesThe Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index climbed 0.7%.The euro decreased 0.8% to $1.1969.The Japanese yen depreciated 0.8% to 107.89 per dollar.BondsThe yield on 10-year Treasuries rose seven basis points to 1.55%.Germany’s 10-year yield fell two basis points to -0.31%.Britain’s 10-year yield decreased five basis points to 0.731%.CommoditiesWest Texas Intermediate crude gained 4.2% to $63.83 a barrel.Gold depreciated 1.1% to $1,692.23 an ounce, the weakest in nine months.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Carnegie Learning launches new brand expanding its groundbreaking K-12 education technology solutions and services to new subject areas.
(Bloomberg) -- The rout in technology shares sent the Nasdaq 100 Index toward a correction as investors fled stocks that powered last year’s pandemic-induced rally.The gauge, heavily weighted toward the biggest tech companies, slid as much as 2.8% on Thursday, bringing its loss since a Feb. 12 record past 10%. Tesla Inc., Peloton Interactive Inc. and Zoom Video Communications Inc. are among members that have lost at least 20% in that span. The Nasdaq 100 is now 4.3% lower for the year after rising as much as 7.1%.The gauge is suffering as investors ditch companies that thrived in the work-from-home era in favor of last year’s laggards, betting that vaccinations will end Covid lockdowns and fuel economic growth that aids cyclical stocks. The latest bout of weakness came after a spike in yields raised concern that companies trading at high valuations may have trouble living up to expectations if borrowing costs surge.“We’ve seen the overvalued megacap tech space assume the brunt of the weakness here,” said Candice Bangsund, portfolio manager of global asset allocation at Fiera Capital. “These sectors are having more trouble digesting the environment of higher bond yields.”That was evident Thursday as Treasury yields climbed toward a one-year high after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell stopped short of pushing back on the recent increase in long-term borrowing costs. The 10-year rate added as much as 6.6 basis points to 1.55%.The correction in the Nasdaq 100 -- typically defined as a 10% pullback from a peak -- comes as investors scale back bets on the market’s speculative fringes. The mania in special purpose acquisition companies is showing signs of hitting a saturation point, with an index tracking blank-check flyers down about 23% from its peak. Cathie Wood’s flagship exchange-traded fund, the Ark Innovation ETF, has gone negative for the year and is now 25% below its all-time high on Feb. 12.The pullback isn’t a surprise given the outlook for a more normal economy to return, and could represent a buying opportunity in a bull market that still has legs, according to Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer at Independent Advisor Alliance.“It may take some time for this to play out, but I don’t believe the bull market will be derailed by this and ultimately any pullbacks are normal and can be bought,” he said.Nonetheless, the rotation away from tech stocks seems to have taken hold and market leadership is likely to change, according to Matt Stucky, portfolio manager at Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Co.“It’s kind of been the reverse of what we saw over the summer,” he said. “Some of the biggest tech companies are certainly under pressure and a lot of that has to do with the backup of long-term interest rates and what that means for longer duration equities.”(Adds more commentary after fifth paragraph, updates index levels.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

The North America medium voltage cable market is expected to grow from US$ 3,689. 8 million in 2019 to US$ 5,220. 7 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5. 70 % from 2020 to 2027. Rise in renewable energy generation across North America is expected to escalate the North America medium voltage cable market.New York, March 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "North America Medium Voltage Cable Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Installation Type and End-Users" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06027842/?utm_source=GNW Various governments across North America are prioritizing the generation of renewable energy owing to increasing energy demand and rising environmental concerns.For instance, over 250 mayors in the US have pledged to procure 100% renewable energy for their respective cities by 2035.Such initiatives in the region are resulting in increased investments in new renewable power plants, which are boosting the demand for medium voltage cables.Regardless of the COVID-19 outbreak, the renewables are expected to account for 95% of the total increase in North America power capacity by 2025.Keeyask Hydropower Generating Station in Canada is one of the ongoing major renewable energy projects in North America.The development of renewable power plants is propelling the North America medium voltage cable market as these cables are significantly used as a primary connection between the renewable energy system and the power network. Thus, investment in renewable energy generation across North America are expected to increase the demand for medium voltage cable, which will drive the growth of the North America medium voltage cable market during forecast period.Furthermore, in case of COVID-19, North America is highly affected specially the US.In the North American region, a slight decline in the demand for medium voltage cables was witnessed owing to a halt in the construction industry.In Canada, construction projects deemed nonessential were shut down, and the essential projects were subjected to public health guidelines.However, positive demand from power distribution as well as energy & infrastructures, particularly in on-shore wind, were noticed.Additionally, demand was accelerated due to the expiration of tax incentives and credits offered by the US government for renewable energy projects.In December 2020, the government passed the COVID-19 relief bill, extending tax incentives timeline for industries, such as renewable energy.The renewable energy industry in the US, including wind and solar power, has witnessed growth during the COVID-19 outbreak so far. Further, the US government support for an infrastructure package worth US$ 2 trillion will moderate the impact on demand for medium power cables used in infrastructure projects.Based on installation type, the overhead cables and accessories segment led the North America medium voltage cable market in 2019.Majority of the overhead cables have been traditionally used for transmitting and distributing the electric power.The configuration of overhead cables is simple.These cables are commonly commissioned using poles and towers.The bare wire conductors in these lines are usually made of aluminum as the key material; however, certain medium voltage wires made of copper are used for distribution to customer premises.Overhead wires are continuously exposed to open atmosphere.Thus, there are many concerns associated with their safety and reliability. Adverse environmental conditions, such as heavy rain, snow, wind, and humidity as well as salt contents in the atmosphere can deteriorate the lifecycle of these cable systems and raise concerns regarding electrical safety. Yet, these cable systems are less expensive as compared to underground cables and are also easy to maintain owing to clear visibility. Further, the cost of installation is less. These advantages of overhead cable systems coupled with other advantages, such as higher lifespan and smaller size of conductors, are boosting their deployment. These cables are the most preferred cable systems for medium voltage electricity transfer and distribution. Advantages of overhead cables and accessories such as less expensive, easy to deploy, and require less maintenance etc. are expected to increase its demand in coming years, which will drive the North America medium voltage cable market.North America medium voltage cable market size has been derived using both primary and secondary sources.To begin the research process, exhaustive secondary research has been conducted using internal and external sources to obtain qualitative and quantitative information related to the North America medium voltage cable market.The process also serves the purpose of obtaining overview and forecast for the North America medium voltage cable market with respects to all the segments pertaining to the region.Also, multiple primary interviews have been conducted with industry participants and commentators to validate the data, as well as to gain more analytical insights into the topic.The participants who typically take part in such a process include industry experts such as VPs, business development managers, medium voltage cable market intelligence managers, and national sales managers along with external consultants such as valuation experts, research analysts, and key opinion leaders specializing in the North America medium voltage cable market.Alpha Wire; Furukawa Electric Co.Ltd.; General Cable Technologies Corporation; LEONI AG; LS Cable & System Ltd.; Nexans; Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. are among a few players operating in the North America medium voltage cable market.Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06027842/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.

16 dogs rescued from “key” slaughterhouse in Cambodian dog meat trade Cambodia, Skun | 2021 03 03 | A FOUR PAWS team during a mission to Skun, Slaughterhouse to shutdown it's operation © FOUR PAWS/Kim Chhay Cambodia, Skun | 2021 03 03 | A FOUR PAWS team during a mission to Skun, Slaughterhouse to shutdown it's operation © FOUR PAWS/Kim Chhay Boston, March 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Cambodian dog meat trade has received another blow: A dog slaughterhouse in Skun Province, estimated to have killed over one million dogs since it opened, was closed by FOUR PAWS today. The global animal welfare organization also rescued all 16 dogs onsite, dismantled cages and demolished the ‘drowning tanks’. The slaughterhouse was considered a key supplier of dog meat in the region. Since opening the facility in 1995, the owner claimed to have drowned up to 200 dogs per day and supplied raw meat to dog meat restaurants in and around Cambodia's capital city, Phnom Penh. FOUR PAWS took the rescued dogs to their local partner and is now preparing them for adoption. In Cambodia, an estimated three million dogs, many of which are stolen pets, are killed for their meat every year. FOUR PAWS warns not only of rampant animal cruelty, but also of the risks to public health. As part of its investigations into the dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia, FOUR PAWS has discovered several high-volume slaughterhouses and hundreds of dog meat restaurants across Cambodia, most of them located in Phnom Penh. FOUR PAWS became aware of this particular slaughterhouse in the city of Skun last year and was able to rescue only a few animals at that time. More recently, the local team has visited with the owner several times after he eventually reached out for assistance to get out of the trade. “The slaughterhouse was by far one of the most shocking facilities our team had ever visited. When we discovered the two elevated, cement water tanks, it was immediately clear to us that this slaughterhouse was designed for mass killing. Over the past 25 years, more than one million dogs have been drowned at the facility. The practice of drowning dogs causes immense pain and suffering and fails to conform to any international standards of humane euthanasia. The 16 dogs we found on-site were the last survivors of this horrific, antiquated practice, that has no place in modern society,” reports Dr. Katherine Polak, veterinarian and Head of FOUR PAWS Stray Animal Care in Southeast Asia. The former owner of the slaughterhouse has contractually assured FOUR PAWS and the local government that he will never again be involved in the dog meat trade. FOUR PAWS is facilitating his livelihood conversion from slaughterhouse to a general goods shop and construction business. It was a busy week for FOUR PAWS. These 16 rescued dogs join the 61 dogs FOUR PAWS took into its care on February 21. The Siem Reap Provincial Department of Agriculture found the animals crammed into six small cages in a minibus travelling through the province, en route to slaughterhouses hours away. Although the trade in dog meat has officially been banned in Siem Reap since July 2020, it was the first time that dogs had been confiscated by the government in Cambodia. Together with its local partners Animal Rescue Cambodia in Phnom Penh and Paw Patrol Cambodia in Siem Reap, FOUR PAWS is providing medical care and preparing the 77 dogs for adoption. To put a sustainable end to the dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia, FOUR PAWS has launched a campaign on an international and national level in Cambodia, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Over one million people worldwide have already signed the petition to end the cruel trade. Through educational work and cooperation with the responsible authorities and tourism associations, the aim is to persuade governments to introduce strict animal welfare laws banning the brutal trade. In addition, FOUR PAWS supports local animal welfare organisations and communities with humane and sustainable dog and cat population management programs. FOUR PAWS is also part of the animal welfare coalitions DMFI (Dog Meat Free Indonesia) and ACPA (Asia Canine Protection Alliance), which lobby against the trade in Southeast Asia.
