European Market View
The most important data release of the day will be the U.S. CPI for October, where consensus is looking for an uptick both in terms of headline and core inflation.
Equities around the world moved lower for a change as US stocks broke the long trend of moving higher. Dow Jones edged lower by -0.3%, S&P 500 by -0.4% and NASDAQ by -0.6%). It does not help overall performance or risk appetite to see a mega cap company such as Tesla loosing 12% or 199 billion USD in one trading session! Otherwise, defensive value stocks were outperforming while energy stocks also moved higher. The news flow is more and more focused on inflation. This should not change today as all eyes will turn to US CPI release at 14:30 CET.
