EU Market View
A record rush to big technology stocks saw equity funds bagging $27.8 billion inflows last week with the ongoing ultra-easy monetary policy. Global market capitalization has risen $50 trillion, or $6.2 billion per hour, since last March, almost 10 times faster than the pace seen in the immediate aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis. The U.S. Federal Reserve for instance has been purchasing bonds at a record pace, doubling its balance sheet to nearly $8 trillion in less than a year. During the same period, the five biggest tech stocks have seen their market value double.
The European Commission said on Friday Britain's data protection laws were in line with the European Union's despite Brexit and it would start a process to allow a continued flow of police and financial data from the EU to Britain for the next 4 years.
The British pound has become an unexpected currency market poster child for the COVID-19 recovery theme. Since mid-December, sterling has strengthened by around 5.5% against the dollar and by 6.5% versus the euro as Britain's vaccination programme got off to a flying start. Hopes of an earlier end to lockdowns have lifted it 2% against the dollar in February.
EU Key Point
- The AUD is the strongest and the USD is the weakest.
- US futures inch higher ahead of North American trading.
- Gold fails to find reprieve despite pressure on the dollar.
