Yesterday the market sentiment was one of risk appetite. Investors are excited about the progress of lowering social containment measures in several European economies in the world and this is motivating the current market sentiment. The American equity markets appreciated, where the Dow Jones index grew by 2.21%, the S&P 500 index appreciated by 1.48 % and the Nasdaq index by 0.7 %. Already the Stoxx 600 - European benchmark - won 0.24%.

The US composite Nasdaq index, which combines the leading companies of the global high-tech sector, declined during the New York trading session yesterday to its lowest level of 9177.1 for the last ten days. This initial sentiment was born by expectations of continuing profit-taking from some overbought and relatively expensive stay-at-home stocks, including the so-called FAANG names, i.e. Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google shares. The Nasdaq futures dropped 430 points or 4.47% of fresh three-month highs.

In the last week of May, most of the market assets usually do not tend to show excessive activity in their movements up or down. Just on rare occasions, new mini-trends formed at this time may be able to exist for more than a few days of June. Most often, such tendencies are so short-lived that they do not survive even until the end of the week due to the fast profit-taking.

Yesterday's market sentiment was one of risk appetite. The main European markets appreciated during the opening of the second session of this week, with investors excited about the reopening of economies and with the stabilisation of the number of new infected cases of covid-19. On the European side, it was possible to observe that the Stoxx 600 index rose by 1,08 % while on the US side, the Dow Jones index increased by 2,17% , the S&P 500 index rose by 1,23%, and the Nasdaq index also closed in green with 0,17%.

The Chinese Yuan climbed close to the 2020 highs, resting at 7.14 Yuan vs the US Dollar amid US-China trade tensions that has been flared up by the US administration. The Yuan/Dollar rate serves as a mirror of US-Sino relations and acuity of the dispute between the two largest world economies. The situation with the Chinese currency exchange rate may bear rather political reasons behind it, a kind of the last warning from Chinese authorities to the United States and the rest of the world.

Fresh German economic indicators provided additional support not only for European stock indexes, but also to global markets. At the beginning of the week a Munich-based Leibniz Institute for Economic Research, better known as IFO, which is an acronym from Information and Forschung (research), published its monthly estimates which are beyond the expectations of the expert community. The German IFO Business Climate Index beats forecasts with a value of 79.5 points in May. That is firmer than last month's 74.

Yesterday saw an appetite for risk and was marked by the reopening of economies and the stabilisation of the number of new ones infected with covid-19. The American stock exchanges were closed due to Memorial Day. British markets were also closed due to the Spring Bank. In the Eurozone, its benchmark index - Stoxx 600 - closed in green with another 1.47 %. In the debt market, yields ended up falling, returning these assets to investors' radar. In the foreign exchange market, the American currency had a relatively mixed behavior during yesterday.

Global stock indexes continued their moderately positive trend in the first half of the day after last week's high close, while American shares are not trading today due to Memorial Day, and many currency and commodity instruments are quiet because of the Spring Bank Holiday in the UK and Muslim Eid al-Fitr in many countries. This looks like the proper time for strategic investment discussions.

Friday was marked by a relatively mixed market sentiment. China offered to threaten retaliation against the United States for the Senate's decision to pass a law that could harm Chinese listed companies trading in North American territory. In Europe, its benchmark - Stoxx 600 - depreciated by 0, 03 %. In the United States, the Dow Jones index fell by 0.04 % while the S&P 500 index appreciated by 0.24 % and the technological Nasdaq index rose by 0.43 %.

Yesterday was marked by an increase in tensions between the United States and China. Chinese companies may be forced to exit US stock exchanges, according to legislation passed by the U.S. Senate on Wednesday. In particular, the US S & P 500 index fell to 0, 75 % while the Dow Jones index appreciated by 0, 41 % and the NASDAQ index lost 0, 97 %. In Europe, its benchmark - Stoxx 600 - fell by 0.75 %. In the debt market, the day was mixed where a clear trajectory was not possible to observe.
