Mercados atentos à redução dos estímulos
- In yesterday's session, most international stock indices managed to register moderate gains on the back of a positive assessment of the trade talks between China and the U.S. Nevertheless, the comments of the Fed Chairman, Jerome Powell, talking about the future reduction of the Fed balance sheet were read by investors as a sign that the central bank will sell its assets at a faster pace than previously expected and caused some falls in stock prices during the day.
- The minutes of the ECB's December monetary policy meeting showed the concerns of most policymakers about the signals of slowdown in the euro area growth. Nevertheless, ECB members continue to expect a positive economic outlook for the euro area as domestic demand remains resilient.
- Today, investors will focus on the U.S. December CPI headline and core inflation figures, which stood both at 2.2% yoy in November.
