Markets pause in anticipation

8 June, 2018

Yesterday’s trading session saw a rotation from the NASDAQ and Tech into the Dow Jones and Industrials. The European Indices have under preformed this week in part due to Euro strength and in part due to concern about trade/political stability in Italy and worsening economic data. China diverged from its Asian Equity counterparts this week and has led the Indices lower overnight. The G7 is meeting today and tomorrow with tensions between the US and the other participants at a high level over trade. Moves in FX are light today in anticipation of the meetings today which will dominate direction into next week and beyond.

UK Halifax House Price Index (3m/YoY) (May) was 1.9% against an expected 1.9% from 2.2% previously.

Eurozone Gross Domestic Product s.a. (Q1) was 0.4% QoQ and 2.5% YoY as previously reported. The QoQ number has been holding steady around 0.6% for 2017 but drop down to 0.4% showing a decline in growth across the Eurozone. The YoY number drop down to 2.5% after weakening Eurozone data. This data sent the EURGBP pair higher from 0.87781 to 0.88372 after this data release.
