Monday is the Swiss national holiday, we will be back Tuesday.
We are observing Risk On sentiment across the board, Indexes rose app 1% and could continue with approximately another percent gain over night fueled by Apple and Amazon. Both companies could exceed expectations and rose 3% and 12% after hours. The GER40 is nearing the important resistance just below 13400.
A quite severe miss in the first reading of US GBP for Q2 at -0.9 vs an expectation of +0.5% raised hopes of fewer rate hikes and there were also reports of investors getting back into positions after the rate decisions to not miss summer opportunities now that the rate hike risk in the US is over. Volumes were above average.
In FX, the USD Index fell to below 106, a 6 week low and EURUSD is trading at 1.0216, GBPUSD at 1.2195 and the JPY at 132.95!
