EU Market View

Asian stocks traded subdued after the momentum from yesterday’s intraday rebound and fresh record highs on Wall Street waned. Amazon earnings beat on the top and bottom lines after reporting a 44% increase in sales: +2.4% after-hours. European stock markets are seen opening slightly lower Friday, ending the week on a cautious note following disappointing Chinese growth data and ahead of key European numbers and the continuing first-quarter earnings season. Global stock markets have been pushed to record levels of late by signs of a broad economic recovery, helped by vast amounts of fiscal stimulus and ultra-easy monetary policies.

Today China’s official manufacturing Purchasing Manager's Index fell to 51.1 in April from 51.9 in March, missing forecasts in April as supply bottlenecks and rising costs weighed on production.

French economy also grew more than expected in the first quarter, climbing 0.4% from the fourth quarter, as consumer spending and business investment held up despite coronavirus curbs. More GDP and inflation data are due from the major European countries and the Eurozone as a whole.

Oil prices edged lower on profit-taking Friday, but are still set to end the week with hefty gains as signs of economic recovery stoked optimism of a strong rebound in global demand this year.

Looking ahead, highlights from the macroeconomic calendar include German GDP (Flash), EZ CPI (Flash) & GDP (Prelim), US PCE and Chicago PMI, Fed's Kaplan speech.

EU Key Point

    • Japan April consumer confidence index 34.7 vs 34.2 expected.
    • Germany reports 24,329 new coronavirus cases, 306 deaths in the latest update today.
    • China says the US increasing military activity directed at it.
    • China's official PMIs for April: Manufacturing 51.1 (vs. expected 51.8).
    • GBP/JPY Price Analysis: Bulls face rejection near 152.20.
    • GBP/USD consolidates gains around 1.3950 amid firmer US dollar.
    • EUR/USD nears 1.2100 on firmer US Treasury yields ahead of German, Eurozone GDP.
