EU Market View

Asian equity markets traded mixed with the region cautious following the mostly negative lead from the US. Looking ahead, highlights include US IJC, Philadelphia Fed Business Index, SARB rate decision, ECB's Lane, Lagarde, BoE's Cunliffe, Fed's Kaplan. A selloff in cryptocurrencies, high-growth stocks and other high-flying assets may be signalling a more cautious outlook among market participants after a stretch of rampant exuberance.

Few believe the bull run that broader U.S. stock markets have experienced over the past year is set for a reversal. Still, concerns are growing that a looming rise in inflation combined with a potential peak in U.S. economic growth could force investors to cut down on risk in their portfolios, hurting many of the assets that shot higher earlier this year.

European stock markets are seen opening higher Thursday, rebounding after the previous session’s sharp losses as a receding pandemic allows the region to reopen its economy.Authorities across Europe are loosening restrictions as infection rates fall and vaccinations rise. The U.K. largely reopened on Monday, Italy, the original epicenter of the crisis in Europe, will phase out its national curfew in the coming weeks, and tough curbs are gradually easing across Germany. 

Additionally, while Eurozone consumer price rose to 1.6% on an annual basis in April on Wednesday, this figure was still below the 2% threshold that makes the European Central Bank jittery, and nowhere near the levels seen in the U.S.

ECB chief Christine Lagarde said on Tuesday it was "essential that monetary and fiscal support are not withdrawn too soon”, suggesting that the region has a lot less immediate risk regarding central bank policy changes than across the pond.

Oil prices edged higher Thursday, rebounding to a degree after the sharp falls of the previous session when traders digested rising U.S. stockpiles, the prospects of more Iranian crude entering the market as well as worries of the Fed tapering back its ultra-easy monetary policies.
