This Thursday, September 23rd, the Bank of England (BoE) joined a relay race after the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) had made its move towards monetary tightening. The U.S. monetary policymaker clearly indicated that it is going to taper quantitative easing before the end of this year. The BoE did not point to any additional monetary stimulus measures in its statement, as it kept its interest rate unchanged at 0.1% together with the 895 –billion-pound ($1.23 billion) bond purchase program.

After the storm signal for global stocks in course of the 20th of September’s "black Monday", when the total downside correction for the Wall Street's broad market S&P 500 index reached 5.35% at a local bottom point, compared to the absolute peaks of all time two weeks earlier, the markets on both sides of the Atlantic are behaving in a much more balanced manner.  A few hours before the end of an important meeting of the Federal Reserve (Fed), where the U.S.

Stock markets continue to behave with agitation in the course of the current week, as most investors are still hesitantly awaiting the meeting of the Federal Reserve (Fed) next Wednesday, which may become a kind of risky turning point for the prevailing sentiment. The threat of money stimulus tapering, which may be announced as starting as early as October or in December, is expected to be pretty limited so that it may  not change the disposition dramatically.

Silver is a metal that is primarily used for manufacturing and less as a precious metal. It is used in high-technological processes thanks to its high conductivity, in manufacturing solar cell batteries and electric vehicles. So, the demand and the price of silver is directly linked to the business activity worldwide. The latter is highly dependent on the spread of Delta variant and the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) stimulus measures perspectives. Such attributes distinguished silver price movements at the beginning of this week.

The stocks at Wall Street finished their seventh straight months in moderate or solid gains. On the first day of September one can already state that August was marked by another record victory for both S&P 500 broad market index which is well above the 4,500 landmark and Nasdaq 100 index, mainly of companies in the tech sector, which is now consolidating higher than another round figure of 15,000 points. Apart from a very small and rather symbolic decline of average market's quotes in January, shortly after the new year's start, the overall U.S.

Platinum prices are moving along with the Dollar-denominated assets against the Greenback this week. The U.S. Dollar fell under pressure after Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Jerome Powell last Friday reiterated his commitment to easy money with vast monetary injections into economy. The decline of the Dollar was immediately used by alternative assets to make an upside jump in prices, including platinum. It rose from $975 per ounce on August 27 to above $1011 on the last summer day, and now is trading slightly above $1007 per ounce.

The paramount intrigue of the week is the results of the Jackson Hole conference run by the Federal Reserve (Fed) and the statement of its Chairman Jerome Powell that is going to take place on Friday. Financial markets are desperately waiting for the major Fed policymaker to announce further perspectives surrounding the monetary policy. However, the Fed is in awkward situation as, on the one hand, it has clear signs of economic recovery with 6.6% GDP up in the second quarter of 2021, and above 6.4% in the first quarter of this year, together with the first estimate of Q2 GDP growth being 6.5%.

The European markets continue to slowly and steadily climb higher , with the Euro Stoxx 50 major indicator adding just about 0.8% since the beginning of the week until noon on Wednesday. However, its increase is almost 2.5% if compared with the last local price bottom of August 19.  Frankly speaking, most of the EU stocks could perform even better if it were not for the German market which clearly underperformed today after today's contradictory release of the national business climate gauge regularly measured by the well-known Ifo Institute on a monthly basis.

As markets are mostly steady on Wednesday, anticipating the U.S. Federal Reserve minutes, which probably would not contain any defining signs for policy changes but may cause some usual after-volatility, a week of corporate reports from major retailers have already made some preliminary discrepancy into the overall sentiment.  The Home Depot, which is Atlanta-based and the largest home improvement and furniture shopping network in the United States, is still very successful amidst the pandemic crisis time. However, its shares initially dropped more than 4.

The middle of this week, was expected to  bring about high volatility in the markets suddenly. But the truth of the matter is that it is showing extreme fragility and uncertainty with price movements and factors affecting it. Investors are trying to tune into any kind of signals that would reflect the policy of the Federal Reserve (Fed). In fact, markets are picking up some signals that were considered with low relevance before. Summer complacency was suddenly interrupted by worse July unemployment data compiled by ADP.
