Mercados iniciam semana em tom positivo
- Financial markets ended the week with a positive tone as investors perceived that a partial trade deal between the U.S. and China is closer. More concretely, the U.S. Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross, said that progress was being made in the agreement's details.
- In this context, stock indices in advanced economies posted broad-based gains. The S&P 500 reached a new historical maximum and the Eurostoxx 50 remained at year highs. In fixed-income markets, yields on German bonds and on U.S. Treasuries ticked up while peripheral euro area spreads partially undid the spike registered on the previous session.
- In oil markets, the price of the barrel of Brent rose above $63 boosted by the improvement in sentiment.
- This week, the focus will be on the Fed and ECB last meeting minutes (Wed. and Thu., respectively) and the flash November PMIs for the euro area, France and Germany (Fri.).
