Ativos de refúgio captam a atenção dos investidores
- Despite the release of better-than-expected economic data in Germany and in the UK, investors traded with a risk-off mood after Mondayâs IMF downward growth revision and amid concerns that the virus outbreak in China could disrupt consumer spending.
- In this context, the price of safe haven assets (such as the German Bund, the Japanese Yen or the Swiss Franc) rose while stock indices across the globe declined.
- In Germany, Januaryâs ZEW survey of economic sentiment rose to 26.7 points (10.7 in the previous month).
- In the UK, employment rose by 208k in the 3 months ending in November and the unemployment rate remained at 3.8%. These figures have been released the week before the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee meeting and weaken the case for a rate cut that has been brought to the table the previous days.
