Most Asian markets showed a bullish tone during Thursday’s session, after finding that the Fed’s last meeting indicated an unwinding of its balance sheet by the end of this year. The OPEC meeting also played a significant role in anticipating an extension of production cuts.

While it is pointed out that the next interest rate hike may soon take place, the need for prudence and waiting for the favorable conditions of the American markets to be confirmed is also emphasized.

Asian shares were mixed in Wednesday’s session, while the pound fell sharply on the results of polls indicating that Theresa May would lose her majority in Parliament after the election.

Within a week of the elections the polls indicate that the Conservatives could lose 20 seats, while the Labor party would win 30. This would mean the loss of the parliamentary majority by the Tories.

The pound has fallen to the level of $ 1.2788, close to last Friday’s lows.

INFLATION DOES NOT GET AWAY

Not only is not improving, but in some countries it has been negative. The difficulties of the oil to climb are partly to blame.

The goals set by the central banks have not yet been achieved.

In a sense it is good for the economy, because cheap money is maintained. However, wages do not push consumption.

Asian markets have been mixed after a new terrorist attack in London. Oil prices rise as Gulf countries cut their relationship with Qatar.

Asian markets have been mixed in Monday’s session, following the terrorist attack on the weekend in central London. As a result of this attack the pound loses strength. Another factor to keep in mind is that the Gulf countries cut off diplomatic relations with Qatar on issues related to terrorism.

Oil prices have risen during the Asian session on Monday as a result of the new situation in the Middle East. News reports say that Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the Arab Emirates and Egypt, which had close ties to Qatar, now cut off their relationship with that country because of problems related to terrorism.

Gold remains stable after playing six-week highs. The reason is the disappointment of the employment data in the United States, published last Friday. They have been worse than expected and seem to dilute somewhat the possibility of interest rate hikes in this month of June.

Despite the fact that jobs continue to grow, the increase in jobs does not reach the expected level, which raises doubts about the strength of the American economy.

European markets are expected to open Monday’s session mixed.

Asian markets have been mixed on Wednesday, while oil has gained significant support.

Asian markets have been mixed during Wednesday’s session, while investors are cautious ahead of the triple ‘super Thursday’ date. These appointments include the ECB, UK elections and James Corney’s statements before the United States Senate.

In the United Kingdom is expected to win the Prime Minister, Conservative Party, with majority according to some last-minute polls. However other surveys say that the Conservatives could lose the majority they have today. There is great uncertainty.

Oil prices have fallen, reaching an important level that can exert support: $ 50 per barrel. Markets remain over saturated and tensions between Gulf countries are felt. The expected fall in US inventories does not seem to have much influence on current prices.

Gold remains steady for the past seven months during Wednesday’s Asian session. It has been supported by a decline in the dollar and geopolitical events, which make safe-haven values highly appreciated.

European markets are expected to open mixed the session on Wednesday.

HIGH EXPECTED VOLATILITY

Markets are nervous about Thursday’s triple citation.

On the one hand the ECB meeting, from which a tightening of the language on its lax monetary policy could emerge.

On the other hand, because Thursday are the elections in the UK and, according to the polls, May has shot the butt. It was thought that he would enlarge seats in Parliament and the polls give almost tie. Although we know from extensive experience that polls in that country do not usually hit.

And above all a third factor: On Thursday the former director of the FBI appears before Congress in the US to testify regarding Trump’s entanglements with the Russians. This factor is very important and is causing a general fall of the dollar and a rise in the yen, which already know has a high negative correlation with the exchanges.

This triple quote is going to keep everyone very cautious.

Asian markets have been slightly bullish in Thursday’s session, expectant to the three major events of the same day. Also worrying about what looks like a new missile launch from North Korea.

China has offered better-than-expected year-on-year data on its trade balance. Exports grew by 8.7%, against the expected 7%, while imports also rose 14.8%, against the expected 8.5%.

The markets are centered on the UK elections. Some of the more recent polls indicate that the Conservatives have dropped five points. Other polls indicate, however, that the same party could retain the majority it already had.

On the other hand, the most important event expected by the markets is the statement of the former director of the FBI, before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Of these statements, about hypothetical relations with the Russians, depends the more immediate future of the Presidency of the United States.

European markets are expected to open Thursday’s session lower.

UP AND DOWN OF THE EURO

The euro reversed the trend in the foreign exchange market, in the face of potential leaks over the European Central Bank’s projections.

Initially the euro had been pushed down but, in the last hour, rose on all fronts. The weakness of the dollar also had an influence.

SESSION OF THE PASSIONATE THURSDAY

We have an exciting session because there will be the decision on ECB interest rates, the UK elections and also the testimony of the former FBI director in front of a Senate Intelligence Commission.

Concerning the ECB, the interest will be in the comments on whether you will be in a hurry for a change of stance.

A NEW AGE

A new era begins for the banking sector. From now on we know that any troubled bank can see how its shareholders are legally expropriated of their assets in one night.

These things do not happen with Inditex or with Telefónica. The banking sector, from now on, has a danger plus.

Little by little Apple is losing that magic that had when Steve Jobs lived. It has to be recognized that it has millions of followers and they buy anything that is presented but, little by little, that brightness disappears

It does so by seeing that in China the brands with lower prices are gaining more and more ground. The battle has to be won on the basis of innovation, something that looks like Apple is losing.

Apple is always expecting the best, even pulling innovation to be able to outdo the rest and stay ahead.

In a situation where the sales of devices are less important, the weight of technological services increases.

In the evolution of the quarterly results we have already seen that the sale of the iPhone presents problems. Will Apple be able to offset that deficit with a service model?

There are more and more developments to use autonomous vehicles, both land and air, to carry small packages to our own homes. It shows a first step of what could be an immense revolution.

Everyone has caught up with the changed step the direct competitors, and all those who are in the sector, are collapsing very seriously.
