Wall Street rebounds on technical buying

Lower global rates across the board was an initial worry for equities yesterday, but once US yields moved below the S&P dividend yield it prompted some technical buying across indices. Oil prices rose on a larger-than-expected drop in inventories while the chances of the UK leaving Europe without a deal increased as PM Boris Johnson’s request to suspend Parliament was granted by The Queen.
