27 March 2014: The European indices seems more confident than the American ones

DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
By Kristina Leonova: Analyst in Portfolio Asset Management Department.


The situation in the stock markets is developing quite ambiguously. Opposition between Russia, the US, and Europe, still puts pressure upon the markets. Additionally, published statistical data didn't show uniform dynamics. Moreover, European leaders already began to manipulate information to put pressure upon the European currency and to contain its further growth.

Yesterday, the stock market of the United States finished the trading session with a moderate decrease. Orders for goods of long use in February increased by 2,2%, which appeared to be significantly higher than forecasts, which assumed a growth of only 1%. At the same time, January’s indicator was reconsidered towards a fall from minus 1,0% to minus 1,3%.

The fall of the indices was also promoted by the statements of the U.S. President in Brussels. Obama stated that the actions of Russia deserve general condemnation, and that the situation in Ukraine could become worse. As a result, the indicator of blue chips, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, went down by 0,60% to the level of 16268,99 points, the index of the wide market, Standard & Poor's 500, decreased by 0,70% and reached a level of 1852,56 points, and the index of high-tech industries, Nasdaq Composite, went to a minus by 1,43% and dropped down to the level of 4173,58 points.

The European trading session, which took place before the American one, was much more successful. The British FTSE 100 rose by 0,01%, the French CAC 40 increased by 0,94%, and the German DAX went into plus on 1,18%. The regional STXE 600 indicator increased, in turn, by 0,7% and was closed on a level of 330,93 points.

Today, we are going to have quite an informative day. Retail sales of Germany and Great Britain for February are going to be published in the first part of the day. In the evening, final data on gross domestic product for the fourth quarter, and primary requests for unemployment benefits are going to be presented as well.

It should be noted that nearing the end of the week, indices passed into a condition of consolidation and closed the trading session on Thursday near to opening levels.

02 April 2014: Markets Are Preparing For The Meeting Of The ECB

DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
By Kristina Leonova: Analyst in Portfolio Asset Management Department.


The U.S. market finished the trading session in positive territory, taking into consideration the increase in the published data on the ISM report, which showed an increase of up to 53,7 points from 53,2 points. Published data appeared to be better than last month, although it was a bit worse than the predictions of analysts on the level of 54,0 points.

As a result, the Dow Jones Industrial Average added 0,46% and reached the level of 16532,61 points, the S&P 500 index rose by 0,70% to the level of 1885,52 points, and the index of tech-companies, Nasdaq, jumped up by 1,64% and was closed on the level of 4268,04 points.

Moderate optimism prevailed at the European stock markets. In Europe, investors are still not in a rush to make important decisions before the upcoming ECB meeting. Analysts and investors are trying to anticipate the expected decisions and possible monetary incentives in relation to the slowdown of inflation in the region.

Yesterday the PMI index of several European countries and the Eurozone as a whole, was published. According to the data, business activity in the leading countries of the Union was worse than market expectations. Germany made 53,7 points against the expected 53,8, and the United Kingdom made 55,3 points against expectations of 56,7 points. The Eurozone PMI industry, nevertheless, coincided with the forecast and reached the level of 53 points. As a result, the index of the London Stock Exchange, the FTSE100, grew by 0,82 %, the French CAC40 added 0,80% and the German DAX, 0,5%.

Quotes of oil fell during yesterday’s trading session and this morning are traded on $105,58 for Brent, and $98,89 for WTI, bargaining next to the levels reached yesterday.

There are not so many important reports being published today before the main economic event of this week. However, in the evening the ADP report in the private sector is going to be published, which should be taken into consideration as it can be used to predict the results of the NFP, which is going to be published on Friday.

03 April 2014: Outcome Of The ECB Meeting Will Have Investors Attention

DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
By Kristina Leonova: Analyst in Portfolio Asset Management Department.


Stock markets again pleased the participants of the markets and closed one more trading day with an increase.
According to the published figures from the Institute of ADP, employment in the United States during last month increased by 191 thousand, which almost reached the expectations of analysts at 195 thousands. Additionally, factory orders in February increased by 1,6%, when 1,2% was expected.

As a result, the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased by 0,24% up to the level of 16573,00 points, the Standard & Poor's 500 index grew by 0,29% and was closed on a level of 1890,90 points, while the index of high-tech companies, Nasdaq Composite, moved up by 0,20% and reached the level of 4276,46 points.

European indices also conducted a positive trading session, continuing their positive trend. The British index, FTSE 100, rose by 0,1%, France's CAC 40 added 0,09%, while Germany's DAX increased by 0,2%. The regional indicator STXE 600, in turn, rose by 0,17% and was closed on the level of 336.93 points.

Today, the attention of investors will be focused on the outcome of the ECB meeting, which, traditionally, is going to be followed by a speech from Mario Draghi. During the last week, analysts were building up confidence that members of the meeting are going to concentrate on the restoration of the peripheral economies, rather than on the weak levels of inflation. Although yesterday, the first doubts about this appeared.

DAILY MARKET REVIEWS

The index of business activity in the U.S. service sector, ISM Non-Manufacturing index, rose in March to 53,1 points from 51,6 points a month earlier, but still appeared to be lower than the predicted 53,5 points.

At the closing of the day, the Dow Jones finished without any change at the level of 16572,55 points, the S&P 500 index fell by 0,11% to the level of 1888,77 points, whilst the Nasdaq lost 0,91% and reached the level of 4237,74 points.

07 April 2014: Markets Are Digesting Last Weeks Events

DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
By Kristina Leonova: Analyst in Portfolio Asset Management Department.


The last trading week was filled with important economic events and publications of macroeconomic statistical data, which influenced the situation in the stock and currency markets.

European stock markets finished the week rather optimistically, and by the end of the trading session, the British index, FTSE 100, and Germany's DAX, increased by 0,70% and the French CAC 40 added 0,79%. The regional indicator STXE 600 increased, in turn, by 0,60% and was closed at the highest level since January 2008 at 339,18 points, having added around 1,60% within a week.

At the same time, the situation in the American stock market was not as positive and finished in negative territory. Mainly, it was pushed down by weak statistics. The labor market data appeared to be worse than the consensus forecast. Last month 192 thousand jobs were created, against the expected 200 thousand. Additionally, the unemployment rate rose from 6,6% to 6,7%.

As a result, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 0,96% and was closed on a level of 16412,71 points, the S&P 500 fell by 1,25% to the level of 1865,09 points, and the biggest loss of the day was obtained by Nasdaq Composite Index, which lost 2,60% and was closed on the level of 4127,73 points.

Commodities are also down this morning, Brent and WTI are losing 1,05% and 0,59% accordingly, traded on prices of $105,51 and $99,87 per barrel. Gold is down by 0,24% on the level of $1300,41 per troy ounce, and silver is traded on a price of $19,86 per troy ounce and is decreasing by 0,45%.

09 April 2014: Movements In The Markets Are In Line With The News Flow
By Kristina Leonova: Chief Analyst in Investment Research Department

After two losing days, the U.S. market bounced and ended the trading session in positive territory. The Dow Jones Industrial Average index added 0,06% and finished the trading session at 16256,14 points, the S&P 500 rose by 0,38% to the level of the 1851,96 points, while the index of high-tech companies, Nasdaq, increased by 0,81% and was closed at 4112,99 points.

In the meantime, the European trading session was influenced by the news coming from the IMF and indices closed the trading day in red territory. The British FTSE 100 lost 0,49%, the French CAC 40 decreased by 0,25%, while Germany's DAX was down by 0,21%. The Regional indicator STXE 600 decreased, in turn, by 0,3% and was closed at a level of 333,85 points.

Yesterday, the International Monetary Fund presented updated projections for global growth for 2014 and 2015, having decreased the world GDP this year to the level of 3,6%, the last projections were based on the level of 3,7%. The outlook for global growth in 2015 dropped from 4% to 3,9%. The main reason for the revision was a slowdown in the economy in countries such as Russia and Brazil.

The geopolitical factor on the conflict between Russia and Ukraine at the current moment only positively affects quotations of oil, giving it support due to speculation regarding the transportation of raw materials from Russia to the EU. This morning, oil dropped slightly back from the levels that had been reached, and is traded on $107,19 per barrel on Brent, and $101,39 on WTI, decreasing by 0,40% and 0,41% accordingly.

Gold is up by 0,11%, traded on a price of $1310,50 per troy ounce, and silver is losing 0,63%, and is traded on a level of $19,93 per troy ounce.

Today, investors attention may be attracted to the protocol of the last meeting of FOMC, which shows the growing number of supporters of a faster increase of the rates, or at least a more detailed discussion of the labor market potentials and risks to financial stability. If either are discussed,this could potentially return interest to the U.S. currency.

10 April 2014:FOMC Protocols Inspired Investors

Yesterday, we emphasized that special attention should be paid to the publication of protocols of the last meeting of the FOMC, which, as a result, helped the American stock market to finish the trading day with an increase.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average index increased by 1,11% to the level of 16437,18 points, the S&P 500 added 1,09% and was closed at the level of 1872,18 points, and the index of high-tech companies, Nasdaq Composite, moved up on 1,72% and reached the level of 4183,90 points.

Minutes from the last FED meeting showed that the majority of the members changed their attitude towards the situation in the U.S. According to the protocols, most of the members revised the GDP growth forecast downwards, and expressed concerns about achieving the inflation target. In addition, the regulator took the decision to abolish the unemployment rate at 6,5%, as one of the signals to higher interest rates.

The European trading session was also rather positive and the majority of the stock indices were able to recoup losses of the previous days. The British, FTSE 100 rose by 0,70%, the French CAC 40 increased by 0,40%, and Germany's DAX added 0,20% . The Regional indicator STXE 600, in turn, increased by 0,40% and was closed on the level of 335,16 points. Among the published statistical data in the region, Germany's trade surplus in February can be noted, which was at the level of 15,7 billion euros, while analysts were expecting a surplus of 17,8 billion euros.

Today is expected to be quite a quiet day in relation to the publication of macroeconomic statistical data, so the participants of the markets are going to look for external information, which could influence the movements in the markets. As previously mentioned, the U.S. started its corporate reporting season, and despite the controversial start with Alcoa, so far the results are rather good.

11 April 2014: The Stock Market Of The U.S. Outlined The Correction
By Kristina Leonova: Chief Analyst in Investment Research Department

There is an impression that the markets are moving up and down, without having the opportunity to decide on a further direction. One day, indices are growing, another day, they are decreasing, thereby leveling all growth of the previous sessions.

Yesterday, the European indices finished the trading day in different directions. At the beginning of the trading session, investors won due to positive news from the USA. After that, some of the indices began to fall, due to the fact that there was not a lot of macroeconomic statistical data published. As a result, the index of the London stock exchange, the FTSE 100, grew by 0,1%, the index of the Parisian stock exchange, the CAC 40, lost 0,66%, and the index of the Frankfurt stock exchange, DAX, decreased by 0,55%.

A pessimistic mood began in Europe and was followed by American indices. We saw a substantial increase in the price of indices on Wednesday, but it seems that after that, stock markets decided to have a correction. A push factor was the statistical data on export and import in China, which appeared to be extremely lower than the predictions of analysts. Import of the country made a number of minus 11,3%, at an expected growth of 2,4%. Export appeared to be minus 6,6% at the expected 4,0%.

However, the statistical data coming from the U.S. was of a positive character, but indices could not find strength to move up. The number of primary requests for unemployment benefits in a week, appeared to be slightly less than expectations on 320 thousand, and made a number of 300 thousand. As a result, the Dow Jones Industrial Average index fell by 1,62% to the level of 16170,22 points, the S&P 500 lost 2,09% and reached a level of 1833,08 points, and the Nasdaq Composite had the biggest loss of the day and decreased by 3,1% to the level of 4054,11 points.

Prices of commodities are stable. Brent and WTI are losing 0,26% and 0,30%, traded on levels of $107,24 and $102,07 per barrel. Gold is flat, traded on a price of $1320,86 per troy ounce. Silver is down by 0,24% at $20,04 per troy ounce.
