Ten-year Treasury yields fell 2 basis points to 1.57%, snapping a four-day increase.“Longer-term Treasury rates are a bit lower during the APAC session, cooling the breakdown of growth stocks,” said Daniel Dubrovsky, a strategist at DailyFX in San Francisco. “There could be some uptake in bonds as investors take advantage of yields.”Equity indexes in Asia got a boost as Chinese state-backed funds were said to have intervened on Tuesday to alleviate declines in the stock market.

The CSI 300 Index of stocks pared a loss of as much as 3.2%.“Risk sentiment is modestly firmer into the middle of the Asia session following reports that state-related funds are intervening to support equity markets in China,” Stephen Innes, the chief global market strategist at Axi, wrote in a note.On Monday, the Nasdaq 100 Index dropped 2.9% to its lowest since November, as investors fled high-valuation stocks for companies whose fortunes are closely tied to the economic cycle.

The FTSE 100 was set for a modest fall today after Bank of England governor Andrew Bailey warned about the prospect of rising inflation. Markets have been spooked by concerns that central banks will have to raise rates due to the inflation that will arise as a result of the economic recovery from Covid combined with the pandemic fiscal and monetary assistance programmes. Bailey acknowledged that inflation would rise as fuel price cuts a year ago fell out of the annual calculation.
L’Union des municipalités du Québec (UMQ) a profité de la Journée internationale des femmes pour saluer le dévouement et le travail des quelque 2500 élues municipales en exercice, mais aussi pour exhorter la gent féminine à briguer les suffrages lors des élections du dimanche 7 novembre prochain. L’objectif est d’«augmenter significativement le nombre de candidatures de femmes aux postes de conseillère et de mairesse et l’atteinte de la parité sur les conseils municipaux». À cet égard, la présidente de l’UMQ et mairesse de Sainte-Julie, Suzanne Roy, rappelle la campagne D’Elles à Élues lancée en mars 2020 en partenariat avec le Secrétariat à la condition féminine du Québec. «Par des histoires inspirantes, [cette initiative] invite les femmes à avoir confiance en elles, à s’impliquer et à s’investir dans la sphère publique. Aujourd’hui, à huit mois des élections, on profite de l’occasion pour dire aux femmes de croire en leurs moyens et de s’engager auprès de leur communauté», déclare-t-elle par voie de communiqué. Au dernier scrutin général, les femmes ne comptaient que pour 33,4 % des 10 975 candidats aux postes de conseiller municipal à l’échelle de la province. L’écart entre les hommes et les femmes était encore plus grand à la mairie, alors que les 385 aspirantes mairesses en 2017 représentaient moins de 20 % de l’ensemble des candidatures autorisées par Élections Québec. Les proportions sont sensiblement les mêmes au chapitre des élus en exercice avec 34,5 % des postes de conseiller municipal et 18,9 % des postes de maire détenus par des femmes. «Les membres de la Commission Femmes et gouvernance de l’Union [UMQ] accentueront leurs efforts, au cours des prochains mois, pour corriger la situation et accélérer l’atteinte de la parité au sein des conseils municipaux», de renchérir la mairesse de Sainte-Martine, Maude Laberge, qui préside aux destinées de la Commission. Le défi que Mme Laberge a lancé à ses collègues «de constituer des équipes paritaires pour les prochaines élections» ne semble pas poser problème à Laval. Hier, le maire Marc Demers et chef du Mouvement lavallois s’engageait à présenter une équipe paritaire en vue du prochain scrutin. Du côté de l’opposition officielle, le Parti Laval - Équipe Michel Trottier compte déjà dans ses rangs 8 femmes parmi ses 12 candidats connus à ce jour, à savoir 66,7 % de ses candidatures aux postes de conseiller municipal. Second groupe d’opposition et seule formation municipale lavalloise dirigée par une femme, Action Laval – Équipe Sonia Baudelot s’apprête pour sa part à confirmer une 7e candidate, ce qui portera à 50 % la représentation féminine de ses effectifs à 8 mois des élections. Quant au nouveau parti Laval citoyens – Équipe Michel Poissant, il a présenté le 25 février ses cinq premiers candidats parmi lesquels on retrouve deux femmes. Aux dernières élections générales, les 38 Lavalloises en lice pour les 21 postes de conseiller à combler représentaient 40,9 % des 93 candidats inscrits sur les bulletins de vote. Ce pourcentage était de 1,5 point supérieur à celui observé sur l’île de Montréal (39,4 %), alors que 194 Montréalaises avaient brigué les suffrages comparativement à 299 hommes en 2017. Parmi les 17 régions administratives de la province, seule l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue avait affiché une proportion plus élevée de femmes (44,1 %) parmi les candidats aux postes de conseiller. Toujours en 2017, des sept candidats à la mairie de Laval, deux femmes étaient sur les rangs dont une candidate indépendante. À l'heure actuelle, le conseil municipal est composé de 21 conseillers lavallois dont 8 femmes pour une représentation féminine de 38,1 %.

EDMONTON — Giving up a goal less than a minute into the game didn't rattle the Edmonton Oilers. Kailer Yamamoto scored the first of three straight goals by Edmonton, and the Oilers held on to beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Monday. Evgenii Dadonov got the Senators on the scoreboard though, just 56 seconds after the puck dropped, but the Oilers didn't falter in the first of three games this week between the two teams. "We're learning on a nightly basis how to play those games, which is good to see," said Alex Chiasson, who had a goal on the night. "Our group stays in the fight and find ways to win games when we may not be at our best right off the bat. It's good to see our group maturing and finding ways to win games that way. Leon Draisaitl also scored for the Oilers, snapping an eight-game scoring drought, while Connor McDavid had two assists. Tim Stutzle scored the other goal for Ottawa (9-18-1). Thomas Chabot assisted on both goals. "Our goal was to get out of the first period tied or better. We did that," said Senators coach D.J. Smith. "It's on us. We made a couple mistakes. Can't fault the effort. "I thought the third period was a good period for us, had a lot of chances. Second period, couple bad changes end up in goals for them." The Oilers improved to 5-0 against the Senators this season, but other than an 8-5 victory in January, the wins haven't come easily. "We caught (Ottawa) early a couple games when we got the jump on them . . . but if you're not willing to work, and you're not willing to work for 60 minutes, they're going to take advantage of that," Oilers coach Dave Tippett said. "So, we have to make sure we got our work boots on and we're ready to go for 60 minutes if we expect to have a chance to win." The Oilers (16-11-0), who started the night a point behind Winnipeg, jumped the Jets into second place in the North Division with the victory. Despite playing a night earlier in Calgary -- a 4-3 Ottawa win -- the Senators got off to a hot start when Dadonov spun and fired past Mikko Koskinen, the Senators' second goal in the opening minute this season. "It's a long game and stuff happens. So you can't get rattled by that," said Oilers centre Kyle Turris. Yamamoto tied it up with a perfect redirect of a long shot by Darnell Nurse at 7:03 of the first period. The Oilers took their first lead at 6:03 of the second on a power play when Chiasson beat Joey Daccord on a 2-on-1 for his fifth goal of the season. The Oilers caught the Senators on a shift change to pad their lead at 14:41 of the second, when Draisaitl fired a quick snap shot inside the right goalpost for his 11th goal of the season. Stutzle breathed some life into the Senators with a shot over the shoulder of Koskinen at 17:57 of the second period, and Edmonton went into the second intermission with a one-goal lead. "We give up a tough one early, but our guys stuck with it," Tippett said. "We played pretty solid for the most part throughout the whole game. We give up two goals that were both kind of tough ones, the second one's a deflection and the first one just squeaks in." Daccord made a few excellent saves in the final minutes to keep the Senators in the game, but they couldn't get the tying goal, and fell to 0-6 this season in the second game of back-to-backs. "He was great, gave us ever opportunity to win," said Smith. The Oilers outshot Ottawa 37-28. "I like the way we don't get flustered at the end," Tippett said. "We know . . . you're going to have to play the whole 60 (minutes) right through it, right until there was a bouncing puck came with about four seconds left. "That was our mindset after the first period, second period and third period. And you know, the goal is to get two points and we were able to get it we got to re-rack and get ready for game two." The Sens and Oilers meet again Wednesday and Friday in Edmonton. This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 8, 2021. The Canadian Press

(Bloomberg) -- Oil edged higher in Asian trading with the market turning its focus back to the robust outlook after a blip caused by a stronger dollar.Futures in New York traded above $65 a barrel after slipping Monday for the first time in four days. A rising currency wiped out solid gains following an attack on a major Saudi Arabian export crude terminal. The assault appears to have had no impact on shipments, but it’s the latest in a series of incidents in the region amid a rapidly tightening market and improving demand.U.S. refineries are resuming operations after the unprecedented cold blast last month and should start consuming more crude, while gasoline demand in California -- the biggest American state -- is picking up.Oil has rallied this year amid output cuts from Saudi Arabia and OPEC+, and an improving demand outlook with the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines. Prompt timespreads have firmed in a bullish backwardation structure, helping to unwind bloated inventories built up during the coronavirus pandemic, while investment banks continue to raise their crude price forecasts.“There’s a number of bullish signals on both the supply and demand side,” said Will Yun, a senior commodities analyst at VI Investment Corp. in Seoul. “However, upward momentum will be volatile and bumpy.”See also: Saudi Oil Attack Is Nothing Like the Last One: Liam DenningU.S. gasoline and distillate stockpiles -- a category that includes diesel --- declined last week, according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey before government data on Wednesday.
