EU Market View
European stock markets are seen opening mixed Thursday, with investors digesting a reassuring statement from the Fed as well as problems with the region’s Covid vaccination program. The Federal Reserve reassured investors that it was committed to maintaining an accommodative monetary policy for some time. The Fed also projected the U.S. economy will grow by a hefty 6.5% this year, thanks in part to massive federal fiscal stimulus and optimism around the success of coronavirus vaccines. Chairman Powell indicated that while inflation is expected to reach 2.4% this year, above the central bank's 2% target, this would be a temporary surge and he did not currently see the Fed raising its benchmark overnight interest rate through 2023.
Oil prices dropped for a fifth straight day on Thursday after official data showed a sustained rise in US crude and fuel inventories, while the ever-present pandemic clouded the demand outlook.
The European Central Bank is stress testing the broader economy to assess the economic risk of climate change three decades into the future, the bank's vice president said on Thursday. While full results of the test, which includes four million companies worldwide and almost all euro zone banks, will be published in mid-2021, early results show there is a clear benefit to early action, Luis de Guindos said.
