European Market View
Global Markets are still watching closely for any developments coming from the heated oil and gas market or from China.
In the equity markets, investors bought the dip last week. Actors is the market picked up more than half of the September drop, with MSCI World a meagre -2% off its all-time highs. Friday was no exception, as equity markets were higher across the board. In the U.S., S&P 500 ended up 0.8%, Dow Jones 1.1% and NASDAQ 0.5%. Cyclicals were the clear outperformers, with industrials, consumer discretionary and banks at the top. It looks like appetite for risk continues into this week as well with U.S. futures pointing sharply higher.
In the FX space, price action over the last week have been heavily characterised by strong performance of commodity-sensitive currencies e.g. AUD, MXN, NZD and ZAR and where central banks have room to hike (irrespective of the central bank's communication). EUR/USD still seems to struggle to break through 1.16 and currently is hovering in the area of 1.1570.
