The trend of European markets in today's session was negative. Pressure from emerging markets as well as fears about US-China customs tariffs remain the main reasons for investors' increased risk aversion. Leading the losses were the technology sector, reflecting the behavior of US counterparts, and producers of raw materials. Above all, at this moment investors are questioning the future of emerging markets, including Argentina. Yesterday, members of the Government said they were confident about the new agreement with the IMF. However, issues related to Brexit remain as background. The German Government has stated that it is prepared for any scenario, including that of a "no-deal". The London Stock Exchange ended today with a loss of 0.91%.

The US market was trading lower, with tech companies' performance negatively impacting the Nasdaq. Highlighting the losses of Amazon and Apple, as well as chip makers, such as Micron Technology. In terms of economic indicators, the ADP employment report showed that 163 000 jobs were created during August, an increase below the expected 200 000. Still on the labor market, the number of weekly applications for unemployment benefits reached 203 000, lower than the estimated 213 000. On the other hand, factory orders decreased 0.80% in July, after two months of increases and against an expected fall of 0.60%. On the other hand, orders for durable goods decreased 1.70% in July, in line with expectations. The ISM index for the services sector stood at 58.5 in August, compared to the previous 55.7 and the forecast 56.8.

Most European stock markets closed lower. Investor sentiment has remained conditioned by threats to trade relations between the US and its main partners (European Union, Canada and China). The banking sector remained under pressure. Deutsche Bank shares fell 1.48%, after news that the Chinese group HNA intends to sell its 7.60% stake. On the other hand, IAG's stocks have come down, in reaction to the British Airways statement that a computer-based attack, lasting several days, will have affected 380,000 cards. On the macroeconomic front, Eurostat reported today that the economies of the Eurozone and the European Union grew 2.10% in the second quarter, after 2.10% in the first three months of the year. Compared to the previous quarter, GDP in the Euro Zone and in the EU rose 0.40%.

Wall Street traded slightly without a definite trend, in a session marked by investor reaction to economic data at a time of uncertainty hanging over the US trade negotiations. In terms of economic indicators, the most awaited indicator of the day and week was the employment report, known today before the opening of the session. This publication has raised renewed fears about the conduct of monetary policy by the FED. During August, the US economy created 201,000 jobs, up from 190,000 expected and 157,000 in July, reflecting a growing economy that showed no signs of slowing down during the summer season. The annualized unemployment rate (currently at the lowest of the last 18 years) was 3.90%, down from 3.80% in July, but in line with expectations. But the biggest surprise came from wages, since it was observed in August a monthly increase of 0.40%, higher than the 0.20% forecast and the previous 0.30%. Year-on-year, the increase was 2.90% for the highest since June 2009.

Today European stock markets ended positive. The banking sector led the gains, and such performance stood out in the Italian market. Intesa, Unicredit and Banco BPM rose more than 5%. In fact, as a reflection of recent days, several members of the Government of Rome expressed their intention to comply with the Community budgetary rules, the Italian stock market showed a relative overperformance, having registered a valuation of more than 2% and the yields of OT to keep up to a minimum of one month. In the political arena, investors also reacted today to the election results in Sweden and developments related to Brexit.

The US stock exchange started the week on a positive note, with shares of tech companies recovering from losses last week. Even so, attention remains focused on US-China trade relations, after Friday, Donald Trump raised the possibility of applying additional tariffs on Chinese products worth 267 M.USD. However, the US president said that Apple should change its production to the US to avoid being hit by customs tariffs imposed on Chinese imports.

European markets have traded slightly today, with most sectors down. The sentiment was conditioned by confirmation by the World Trade Organization that it will respond to China's request for the country to obtain permission to impose sanctions against the US for failing to comply with anti-dumping measures of the international entity. Thus, in face of investors' concerns about the relations between these two countries, commodity producers ended up leading losses in sectoral terms, with a depreciation of around 1%. ArcelorMittal fell 1.98% after news of rising its bid to buy Essar Steel. On the other hand, Apple's suppliers (such as STMicroelectronics) were penalized by the statements of the American President. Donald Trump said that the technology company is being hampered by the tariffs imposed on Chinese imports. Meanwhile, oil prices in the United States rose to levels close to $ 68 a barrel in face of mounting fears about the hurricane approaching the US East Coast that could condition production of this raw material. In terms of economic indicators, in Germany, the ZEW sentiment index of financial agents was better than expected, as it stood at -10.6 in September, compared to the -13.0 expected.

The US market reversed to positive ground after starting lower in today's session. At stake was the performance of the technology sector.

European stock markets closed higher, with most sectors of activity on positive ground. The oil companies were among the best performers, due to the rise in the price of crude oil. On the other hand, in the retail sector, the Spanish Inditex increased 4.11%. After having presented the lowest revenue growth in the last 4 years for the first half of the year, the retailer expects that sales growth will accelerate and that there will be an improvement in profit in the second quarter. In the first six months of the year, the company recorded sales of 12030 M., compared to estimates of 12060 M. and a net profit of 1410 M., in line with forecasts. Contrary to the general trend of the markets were the companies of the technological sector and the utilities. In Frankfurt, Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank devalued, after the German magazine Der Spiegel has advanced that the two institutions are increasingly available for a merger. However, Commerzbank CEO Martin Zielke prefers to do the operation "today than tomorrow", while the head of Deutsche Bank has reported internally that this transaction is not on the agenda for the next 18 months.

The US market traded lower, pressured by falling stocks of chip makers. In fact, the technology sector, and more precisely the titles of the semiconductor companies lost ground, the day that Apple will present a new series of products. Despite the secrecy that usually surrounds this presentation, some rumors are already circulating in computer environments. The company is due to introduce a new range of iPhones inspired by the iPhone X. The new iPhones are supposed to be bigger and the screen should cover one of the faces of the new device. One of the biggest unknowns of these new products will be its price. In the last quarter, iPhones revenue growth was almost exclusively due to price increases, as sales only increased by 1%. Now analysts and investors are wondering if the new models will cost more than $ 1,000, the price of iPhone X. In addition, Apple will unveil new versions of MacBook Air, Mac Mini, iPad and Apple Watch.

European markets finished higher on a day marked by the meetings of the Central Banks of Turkey, ECB and England. Producers of raw materials and car manufacturers have benefited from the prospect of renewed talks between the US and China. On the other hand, the technology sector reacted positively to the presentation of new products by Apple. Meanwhile, the price of oil corrected today from the highs of May, after surpassing the 80 USD, due to the possible impact of Hurricane Florence on the North American production. The storm has slowed down and is now in Category 2, thus lowering the impact on barrel production. As expected, the ECB decided to keep the key interest rates unchanged and reiterated its intention to end the asset purchase program later this year. The statement said that the ECB "expects the ECB's key interest rates to remain at current levels, at least until the summer of 2019." At the press conference after the board meeting, Mario Draghi said he has decided to revise his projections for Eurozone growth downward, pointing to increased protectionism and financial market volatility as factors that may weigh on the performance of economy of the region. Mario Draghi kept inflation forecasts at 1.70% between this year and 2020, but cut the growth projections for this year from 2.10% to 2.00%. For 2019, it lowered the forecast of 1.90%, to 1.80%, maintaining only the growth projection for 2020 at 1.70%. Another meeting that caught the attention of investors was that of the Central Bank of Turkey which raised interest rates from 17.75% to 24%. Consequently, the Turkish Lira appreciated significantly against the Dollar. This was a decision that exceeded market forecasts. On the other hand, the Bank of England also decided to keep the principal interest rates at 0.75%.

The US market traded higher, although President Trump said in a tweet that there is no rush to reach an agreement with China. In the business field, Apple was gaining ground, after yesterday the reaction to the presentation of the new products have not been positive. In macroeconomic terms, during August, inflation in annual terms increased 2.70% compared to 2.80% and 2.90% in the previous month. If we exclude the most volatile goods, the consumer price index rose by 2.20% compared to the expected 2.40%.

Ger30, UK100 and SP500 are CFDs, written over the Dax30, Footsie100 and S&P500 Index futures:

In the pre-opening, the European stocks rehearsed in high. Negotiations between the US and China remain a dominant theme and one of the main drivers of investor sentiment, which is currently looking forward to a possible resumption of talks between the two countries. Yesterday the session was dominated by the meetings of the ECB and the Central Bank of Turkey. The main points of the ECB meeting were:
Interest rates should remain unchanged until and during the summer of 2019.
Inflation uncertainty is declining and should follow a clear upward trend in the future.
Despite the specter of a trade war and the turbulence experienced in emerging markets, the risks to the growth of the Euro Zone are contained.
Projections for GDP growth in 2018 were reduced from 2.10% to 2% and 2019 from 1.90% to 1.80%.
The ECB does not observe any contagion caused by the political and budgetary situation in Italy.
The ECB has not yet begun to discuss whether and how it will reinvest the interest and repayments of the bonds it holds in the portfolio.
On the other hand, the Central Bank of Turkey increased the benchmark rates by 6.25% to 24%, an increase well above the 3.25% estimated by the economists' average. At an early stage, this institution was able to achieve its objective: to stabilize the Turkish Lira and to restore the confidence of global investors who had previously been skeptical of the Central Bank's reluctance to raise interest rates. Yesterday's decision also signals the independence of this institution vis--vis President Erdogan, who has never concealed his hostility to the increase in benchmark rates. The reverse of the medal, namely the worsening of the debt burden of households and companies, should only materialize in the long term.

European stock exchanges traded on a rising trend, despite mounting fears about tensions between the US and China. Producers of raw materials, a sector more sensitive to these issues, ended up slightly after the most recent developments in this area. The retail sector was highlighted, due to the strong valuation carried out by the Swedish H & M. The company advanced more than 16 percent after delivering better-than-expected results: sales reached 55820 M.SEK in the third quarter, against a forecast range of 53220 M.SEK and 55490 M.SEK. The technological sector was among the worst performers, in line with the behavior of the American counterparts. In terms of economic indicators, inflation in the Eurozone in August slowed slightly to 2%, thus confirming the first reading.

The US market began the week low, with sentiment being influenced by the uncertainty associated with growing tensions between the US and China. In addition, at the end of Friday, Bloomberg reported that the Trump Administration would be willing to implement new tariffs on 200,000 M.USD of Chinese products and simultaneously launch a new round of negotiations with Beijing. On Sunday, news in this regard was also given by CNBC. On Saturday, the Wall Street Journal mentioned the additional tariffs on Chinese imports would be 10% rather than 25% as initially thought. The same source referred that Chinese officials would not participate in the talks promoted by Washington if new tariffs on Chinese exports were implemented. At the same time, the technology sector was underperforming as Amazon, Apple and Micron shares lost ground. Amazon was down 1.94%, after one Citibank analyst suggested a two-way split in face of competition issues under Trump's new policies.

European stock markets ended slightly higher at a session where the focus was mostly on recent news reports on US-China trade relations. And it was in this sense that producers of raw materials ended up high. In turn, technology companies benefited from the gains of their US counterparts. In terms of business, Sweden's H&M fell more than 1%, after the strong recovery achieved yesterday after the presentation of results higher than expected. On the macroeconomic front, and as expected, the Hungarian Central Bank kept the key interest rates unchanged at 0.90%.

Wall Street traded bullish, with investors keen on the latest developments regarding trade tensions between the US and China. In addition, the technology sector showed an upward trend, with Apple standing out. Yesterday at the end of the day it was reported that the Trump Administration will apply, from next week, a rate increased by 10% over 200 000 M.USD of Chinese products, which could be increased up to 25% by the end of the year. In addition, a study on the taxation of 250 000 M.USD of other imports from China would be in preparation. However, China has already announced that it will have no choice but to retaliate. On the other hand, investors were also reacting to the figures released by Oracle and FedEx. Oracle reported its quarterly accounts, adjusted adjusted EPS reached 0.71 USD and revenues 9190 M.USD. Analysts had forecast a EPS of 0.69 USD and revenue of 9280 M.USD. The stock lost about 1%. In turn, Global carrier reported a adjusted EPS of 3.46 USD, which fell short of 3.80 USD estimated. The company improved its projections for 2019. The shares fell 4.33%. In terms of indicators, NAHB Housing Market Index, the sentiment index for builders stood at 67 in September, slightly above the expected 66.

Ger30, UK100 and SP500 are CFDs, written over the Dax30, Footsie100 and S&P500 Index futures:

In today's session, European markets have ended up in face of an illusion of calm regarding the trade tensions between the US and China. The producers of raw materials have already reflected this greater optimism, gaining more than 3%. The day was also marked by rising zinc and nickel prices. Of note are the valuations of the mining companies, such as Glencore, Antofagasta, Anglo American and Billiton. At the same time, car manufacturers and banks also posted gains of more than 1%. Automobile sales grew by almost 30% in Europe during the month of August compared to the same period in 2017. This strong increase is partly explained by the fact that the new European rules concerning gas emissions for car manufacturers came into force in September.

The US market traded in different directions, with the technology sector reporting slight losses, but the Dow Jones and S & P500 had earnings. China's retaliation for the US announcement lessened the fears of investors whose uncertainty has influenced investors' decisions. It should be recalled that following the Trump Administration's announcement that it would implement a rate of 10% over 200,000 M.USD (which could reach 25% by the end of the year), China retaliated by imposing on exports (60,000 M.USD ) a 10% rate. The Chinese retaliation appears to be less than the amount of Chinese products that will be subject to American tariffs. In terms of economic indicators, the current account deficit decreased by 17% in the second quarter from 121700 M.USD to 101500 M.USD, the lowest of the last 3 years. Estimates pointed to a higher deficit (103400 M.USD). On the other hand, the houses under construction increased by 9.20% in August to a total of 1.28 million, up from 1.23 million homes planned. Allocation of building permits during the same month disappointed the market, as the number of licenses decreased 5.70% compared to July and to forecasts of a rise of 0.50%. With respect to the debt market, 10-year TO yields have exceeded 3% for peaks of the last 4 months.
