25 April 2014: The Markets Drift Due To Disappointing News

Yesterday, the American stock market had another moderate trading session, which helped indices to keep their gained positions, and even show a small increase. The stock market was again supported by good quarterly results of companies such as Apple, Caterpillar and Microsoft. Additionally, data on orders of goods of long use in March showed a growth of 2,6%, whilst analysts predicted a level of only 2,0%.

At the same time, negative news flooded the markets. The number of primary requests for unemployment benefits increased to 329 thousand from 305 thousand the previous month, when analysts were expecting the number to be on the level of 310 thousand. Also, the index of business activity in the industry of the FED of Kansas in April decreased to 12 points from 22 points a month earlier.

Additionally, the situation with the conflict in Ukraine is still influencing the market and brings even more uncertainty, as the situation in the country before the weekend keeps getting worse. This morning, the S&P agency lowered the sovereign rating of the Russian Federation from “BBB” to “BBB-“, which is definitely a very bad signal for the country and will have a bad influence on the opening of the trading session in Russia.

The trading session in the stock market in the U.S yesterday finished with the Dow Jones Industrial Average index being unchanged, and closing the day at the level of 16501,65 points. The index of the wide market, S&P 500, grew by 0,17% to the level of 1878,61 points, and the index of the hi-tech companies, Nasdaq, added 0,52% and reached the level of 4148,34 points.

European stock markets already opened the trading day, and are trading in the red zone. Prices of commodities are also bargaining without any significant change. Brent and WTI are losing 0,35% and 0.32% accordingly, traded on levels of $109,95 and $101,62 per barrel. Gold is up by 0,20% and is traded on a level of $1293,14 per troy ounce, silver is losing 0,48% and is on the price of $19,59 per troy ounce.

28 APRIL 2014: INVESTORS ARE WAITING FOR FED MEETING THIS WEEK

The beginning of the week has again been influenced by the situation in Ukraine, where intensity continues to strengthen. During Friday’s telephone conference leaders of France, the USA, Germany and Italy, discussed the possibility of an introduction of new sanctions against Russia, thus heads of all four countries believe that the Russian Federation, according to the accepted arrangements, have to take action towards the de-escalation of the conflict, and refuse provocative statements. At the same time, the U.S. are easy going when it comes to the introduction of new sanctions, but European countries are not really willing to proceed with the same attitude, as they are going to become safer due to these actions, and are affected by the situation much more than the U.S.

On Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average index finished the trading session with a loss of 0,75% and was closed on a level of 16378,05 points, the index of the wide market, S&P 500, went to a minus by 0,76% and reached the level of 1864,33 points, and the index of the hi-tech companies, Nasdaq, fell by 1,68% to the level of 4078,79 points.

European indices also finished the trading week rather differently, but mainly in negative territory. The British FTSE 100 lost 0,26%, the French index, CAC 40, added 0,80%, and the German DAX went to a minus by 1,54%. The regional STXE 600 indicator decreased, in turn, by 0,80% and was closed on a level of 333,5 points. This morning, indices opened the trading week at almost the same levels they closed with on Friday. The FTSE 100 adds 0,26%, the DAX index adds 0,27% so far, and the CAC 40 grows by 0,19%.

Today, the economic calendar is rather empty, and there aren't any important macroeconomic reports expected, but special attention should be paid to the results of the meeting of the FED, results which we will be able to see on Wednesday the 30th of April, 2014. On Thursday, the majority of the stock markets will be closed in relation to the celebration of Labour Day.

30 April 2014: Stock Markets Moving Up Before Decision Of The FED

The stock markets had a rather positive trading session on Tuesday. In Europe, the business confidence index in Germany was within expectations, however inflation in the leading country of the Eurozone continues to slow down. The trading session was closed with the index of the London stock exchange, FTSE 100, adding 1,04%, the index of the Parisian stock exchange, CAC 40, growing by 0,83% and the index of the Frankfurt stock exchange, DAX, increasing by 1,46%.

American stock indices continued their positive trend in the markets, and as a result, the Dow Jones Industrial Average index was closed with a 0,53% increase on a level of 16535,37 points, the index of the wide market, S&P 500, grew by 0,48% to the level of 1878,33 points, and the index of the hi-tech companies, Nasdaq, added 0,72% and reached a level of 4103,54 points.

Prices of commodities are correcting slightly from yesterday's levels, Brent is losing 0,57% and is traded on a price of $108,36 per barrel, and WTI is down by 1,04% on a level of $100,23 per barrel. Gold and silver are decreasing by 0,42% and 0,81% accordingly, traded on a level of $1290,91 and $19,33 per troy ounce.

Today in the Eurozone, one of the most important indicators will be published– the indicator of inflation in the region. The European Central Bank is already ready to start the program for repayment of bonds of the countries, in order to disallow any deflationary processes in the region. In March, growth of the consumer prices slowed to 0,5%, but today an acceleration up till 0,8% is expected, which might influence further decisions of the regulator.

In the evening, the FED of the U.S. will publish the results of the meeting, which began yesterday. Since December, the regulator has reduced the program of quantitative easing by an equal amount of 10 billion dollars after each meeting. Thus, the volume of purchase of securities was already reduced by the FED from 85 to 55 billion dollars. Considering the positive signals from the American economy in recent months, most probably, there will be no surprises today. The QE3 program will be reduced to 45 billion dollars a month.

Meeting of the FED did not bring any surprises, participants of the markets were almost sure that the program of quantitative easing will be reduced by another 10 billion. The interest rate has been kept on the same level within the diapason of the 0%-0,25%. Before we actually have got results of the meeting, we could follow publications of the data on gross domestic product of the USA, which has raised, according to the preliminary data, only for 0,1%, while growth of 1,2% was expected.
