Summary:  China grows - watch the Central Banker Meeting in Portugal

Good Morning,

While markets were cautious yesterday and indexes closed lower and Big Tech suffered most. Alphabet and Tesla were downgraded by analysts and fell 3.3% and 6% respectively, Nvidia dropped 4.5%.

Kim Cramer writes  DAXseems destined to test key support at around 15,625. If DAX closes below that support a down trend has been confirmed.

The USD is fairly stable this morning, EURUSD is above 1.09 at 1.0920, GBPUSD 1.2733 and USDJPY 143.50 – the USD Index 102.60. ECB`s Kazak was on the wire with rather hawkish tones stating the ECB would hike past July.

 Gold is holding up at 1927 and Silver is rising to test the 23 figure.

News of the day is an announcement by  Chinese Premier that 2nd Quarter growth is expected to be app 5% - higher than expected. This is perceived well by traders and overnight, equities gain app 0.2-0.3%.

The Turkish Lira continues it`s decline – now 26 Lira are needed to buy one USD.

Peter Garnry pointed out yesterday that  European defense companies continue to see strong orders intake as Europe is significantly increasing its defense spending in a response to the war in Ukraine.

Todays driver will be the US Durable goods, Canadian Data overall sentiment possibly affected by events in Russia and the Central Bank Forum in Portugal even if the highlight is only tomorrow.
