    Global Markets:

    US Dow Jones futures were down 134 points, indicating a weak opening in the US stocks on Friday.

    Shares in Europe and Asia declined across the board on Friday amid rising bond yields.

    The Chinese government has set its 2021 economic growth target at more than 6%, Premier Li Keqiang said in his annual work report on Friday at the opening of this year's meeting of parliament. China did not set a gross domestic product target last year due to uncertainties arising from the pandemic. The government has set its 2021 target for consumer price inflation at around 3% and its budget deficit goal of around 3.2% of GDP, Li said.

    US stocks fell sharply on Thursday after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell failed to reassure investors that the central bank would keep surging bond yields and inflation expectations in check.

    On Thursday, Powell said the economic reopening could create some upward pressure on prices. He said he expects the central bank to be patient in terms of acting on policy, even if the economy sees transitory increases in inflation. Powell noted, however, that the recent rise in yields did catch his attention, as have improving economic conditions.

    The 10-year Treasury yield, which has been keeping investors on edge in recent weeks, jumped to 1.54% after Powell's remarks. Last week, the benchmark 10-year soared to a high of 1.6% in a sudden move that sparked a big sell-off in stocks.

    Meanwhile, OPEC and its allies agreed to extend most oil output cuts into April, offering small exemptions to Russia and Kazakhstan, after deciding that the demand recovery from the coronavirus pandemic was still fragile despite a recent oil price rally.
