EU Market View

 

Asian equity markets were subdued following the lacklustre performance in the US where the DJIA suffered its worst day in over two months. European stock markets traded higher Wednesday, with the ftse100 outperforming after better-than-expected U.K. growth data, although moves are limited ahead of key U.S. inflation data. The dollar edged higher in early European trade Wednesday , but remains near recent lows ahead of a key U.S. inflation release. While equity markets have started to fret about what a high inflation number could mean in terms of Federal Reserve policy going forward, currency traders seem to have been calmed by repeated promises of patience from Fed speakers as the dollar remains at low levels.

St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard said on Tuesday he expects inflation could stay as high as 2.5% next year, while Fed Governor Lael Brainard said weak labour data last week shows the recovery has a long way to run.

 Britain's pandemic-battered economy grew more strongly than expected in March as it gathered speed for a bounce-back from its coronavirus slump of 2020, official data showed on Wednesday. The 2.1% growth from February was led by the reopening of schools which, alongside COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, pushed up activity in the public sector and by retailers as consumers spent some of their lockdown savings. The BoE said last week it expected the economy would recover quickly as the country speeds ahead with Europe's fastest vaccination programme and coronavirus restrictions are lifted. Its forecast for 7.25% growth in 2021 would be the fastest since a Second World War rush to rearm although by comparison GDP collapsed by 9.8% in 2020, its deepest slump in over three centuries.

Looking ahead, highlights include UK GDP and production data, Swedish & US inflation, DoEs, BoE's Bailey, Fed's Clarida, Bostic, Harker, supply from the US, earnings from Commerzbank, Bayer, Allianz and Dialog Semiconductor speeches.
