Mantêm-se as preocupações com as tensões comerciais e o crescimento mundial
- Concerns about trade tensions and global growth crept back into markets in the last session of the week. European stocks declined while U.S. stocks ended roughly unchanged after a rally in the final minutes of trading. This morning Chinese markets registered gains as they reopened after last week's Lunar New Year holiday.
- Safe-haven flows drove core sovereign yields down (yields on 10-year German Bunds and U.S. Treasuries declined to their lowest levels since end-2016 and end-2017, respectively) while euro area peripheral spreads edged up.
- This week investors will focus on Q4 GDP figures for the U.K., Japan and Germany, as well as on January CPI inflation in the U.S. Political developments will also be at the forefront both in the U.K. (where the government is set to bring another brexit vote to Parliament) and the U.S. (where parts of the government may shut down again if no budget deal is reached before Friday).
