In the middle of the current busy trading week, market sentiment can be defined as mixed. Yesterday, the latest news from China (Chinese authorities intentions to pursue an active stimulating policy to support the economy), as well as data on American producer inflation, returned a local enthusiasm to the market. On Tuesday, US stock indexes showed significant growth and managed to strengthen by 0.7% -1.7%. It is characteristic that US main index SP 500 rose above the important 2600 points and is trying to gain a foothold at these levels. This is a technical confirmation of a positive market sentiment.
Yesterday, market focus was upon the data on US producer inflation. The base year-on-year figure was 2.7%, with a forecast of 2.9% as well New-York activity index decreased from 11. 5 points to 3.9. It is interesting enough that the markets rated this data positively as the statistics confirms the idea that there is no need for the Fed to raise rates in the future. In addition the markets focus shifts toward the quarterly corporate report season in the States.
The government of Prime Minister Theresa May received a vote of no confidence after the British parliament voted against the plan proposed by the Prime Minister to withdraw from the European Union. However, these events did not have a significant impact on the market. Meanwhile, reports on income from Bank of America and Goldman Sachs will be the main event of today, as the season of corporate reports in the US is gaining momentum.
In FOREX market, the correctional slight US dollar gains continues. USD dollar index continues to trade within yesterday's ranges, rising to resistance in the area of 95.75 points. The European currency strengthened the decline and dropped below 1.1400. Shortly before the start of the American trading session, EUR / USD is trading in the area of 1.1385.
