(Bloomberg) -- Asian shares fluctuated and U.S. futures were a touch weaker Monday after stocks notched another week of record highs, with investors weighing the recovery in global growth and corporate earnings against the latest appalling tallies of Covid-19 infections.Benchmarks swung from red to green in Japan, Hong Kong and China. U.S. futures pared early losses, following a fourth straight weekly gain for the S&P 500 Index. Treasury yields slipped further below recent peaks. Crude oil fell and the dollar rallied from a week of losses. New Covid-19 cases in the past week surpassed 5.2 million, the most since the pandemic began.Bitcoin tumbled the most since February over the weekend, after reaching a record last week as crypto exchange Coinbase Global Inc. went public. The yen gained and euro underperformed in early Asia trade. Asian credit markets rallied, led by a rebound in China Huarong Asset Management Co. bonds. China’s financial regulator said the bad-debt manager had ample liquidity, in the first official comments since the company missed a deadline to report earnings.Robust data from China and the U.S. have buoyed investor sentiment, pushing the MSCI All-Country World Index to another record despite concerns surrounding the spread of Covid-19 variants. The risk of another destabilizing increase in borrowing costs has also subsided, as bond yields have pulled back from recent highs. This week traders will look for further confirmation of the private sector’s recovery from the pandemic as the earnings season gathers pace.“If we see vaccinations not working with new mutations, or if we see interest rates start creeping up again, these will all create tension again in the market,” Eva Ados, ERShares chief investment strategist, said on Bloomberg TV.The European Central Bank decision later in the week will also draw attention. The ECB is likely to keep policy unchanged, and to sound cautiously optimistic on the economy and stabilization in borrowing rates. It’s probably too soon for further details about the plans for the asset purchase program beyond the second quarter.Meanwhile, traders are also monitoring growing tensions between the U.S. and Russia over jailed opposition leader Alexey Navalny.Here are some key events to watch this week:Apple’s first product unveiling of the year on Tuesday.Reserve Bank of Australia releases minutes of its policy meeting on Tuesday.EIA crude oil inventory report on Wednesday.European Central Bank rate decision and President Christine Lagarde briefing on Thursday.U.S. releases manufacturing and services purchasing managers indexes Friday.These are some of the main moves in financial markets:StocksS&P 500 futures fell 0.3% as of 10:30 a.m. in Tokyo.
