Mercados cautelosos com tensões EUA-China
- In the last session of the week, investors traded with caution amid the U.S. -China tensions. In particular, discord over the Hong Kong protests increased investors' doubts about reaching a trade deal soon.
- In this context, stock indices registered broad-based but moderate losses in advanced economies and were mixed in emerging markets. In fixed-income markets, sovereign yields were broadly unchanged.
- In November, HICP headline and core inflation in the euro area jumped from 0.7% to 1.0% and from 1.2% to 1.5%, respectively, according to the flash estimate. The increase was mainly driven by food and services prices.
- This week, investors will focus on the final PMI and ISM figures of November in the euro area and in the U.S., November’s U.S. employment report (Friday) and the OPEP and its allies meeting in Vienna (Thursday and Friday), where its members might extend the current supply cuts in order to limit global oil supply.
