Oil falls amid stockpiling concern; European vaccine woe threatens demand
Oil prices fell on Tuesday, extending declines for a third day, as concerns about rising stockpiles in the United States added to the threat to demand posed by countries including Germany and France halting COVID-19 vaccinations. Brent crude was down 58 cents, or 0.8%, at $68.30 by 0041 GMT, having dropped 0.5% on Monday. U.S. crude was down 61 cents, or 0.9%, at $64.78 a barrel, after declining 0.3% in the previous session. Germany, France and Italy plan to suspend AstraZeneca PLC COVID-19 injections after reports of possible serious side effects, although the World Health Organization said there was no established link to the vaccine. These moves are deepening concerns over a slow pace of vaccinations in the region, which may delay any economic recovery from the pandemic in one of the hardest-hit areas.

High US yields may not be negative for the Indian market, says market expert Adrian Mowat
Emerging equity markets strategist Adrian Mowat believes that the US 10-year yield can hit 2.5 percent over the next 12 months. He said that the high US yields may not be negative for the Indian market. He said, “I don’t see any conceptual reason why the US bond yields shouldn’t be 2.5 percent within the next 12 months. I don’t think it is a particular headwind for India. India will be benefitting from the fact that we have a better global outlook. The fact that bond yields are moving to what will still historically be a very low level if we are talking about 2.5 percent should not be an impairment for economic activity
