O dia de ontem ficou marcado por sentimento de apetite pelo risco. Apesar de especialistas terem travado o otimismo em relação à vacina da Moderna para o novo coronavírus, as declarações de Donald Trump em que revela otimismo de uma recuperação económica em V acabaram por levar a um crescimento das bolsas acionistas. As bolsas acionistas americanas valorizaram e, em particular, o Dow Jones cresceu 1.52% enquanto o S&P500 subiu 1.67% e o Nasdaq valorizou 2.64%. Relativamente à Zona Euro, o seu índice de referência – Stoxx 600 – subiu 0.98%.

Markets continue to be mostly sideways since Tuesday evening, excluding climbing Gold futures, as they are awaiting the Federal Open Market Committee's (FOMC) April 28-29 policy meeting minutes at 18:00 GMT. It is unlikely that market participants really hope for some fresh shedding of light signals encoded inside the multi-page rhetoric of the American monetary regulator.

Yesterday was marked by an aversion to risk with doubts arising in relation to Moderna's vaccine for the new coronavirus. In terms of numbers, in Europe, its main reference index - Stoxx 600 – rose by 0.61 %. In the United States, it was possible to observe the Dow Jones index down by 1,59 % while the Nasdaq index increased by 1 .05 % and the S&P500 index dropped by 0 .54 %. In the debt market, there was an increase in demand for this type of asset, leading to a decrease in its yields.

The rise of crude prices in the beginning of this week was fueled by the global ease of the pandemic and hopes for a gradual economic recovery, as well as increasing demand for crude. The optimistic signals of increasing business activity embolden by US Federal Reserve's (Fed) Chair Jerome Powell who waved an expectation of economic recovery in the second half of 2020, helped oil prices. China shows rising demand for crude after reopening the economy in April. The crude refining in China was up by 11% in April compared to March, and even 0.8% above April 2019 levels.

A prevailing positive market sentiment led to the jumping of the US S&P500 stock index by 3.23% on Monday compared to Friday's close. That is almost 100 points for the previous 24 hours and more than 200 points counting from last week's bottom.

Both the European stock exchanges and the US futures on S&P500, Nasdaq and Dow Jones stock indexes opened higher and are trading further in positive territory. Sources of such nice market performances today provided numerous good news from the antivirus front. First, the California-based Sorrento Therapeutics biotechnology company claimed a breakthrough on a COVID-19 medical war by saying its experimental antibody candidate medicament showed great potential in blocking COVID-19 infections in pre-clinical studies.

On Friday, the market sentiment was an appetite for risk. The stock markets ended up closing on positive ground, thanks to a final "rally" that placed the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 indexes above the waterline, joining the technological Nasdaq index, which was already rising. Supporting it was the continued rise in the price of a barrel of crude oil. In particular, the Stoxx 600 - European benchmark index - appreciated by 0.47%. On the other side of the Atlantic, the S&P 500 index grew by 0.36% while the Dow Jones index gained 0.25% and the Nasdaq index rose by 0.79%.

Yesterday was marked by mixed market behaviour. For much of the day there was a great deal of risk aversion as US Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Jerome Powell said that Congress and the White House may have to invest more to ensure that the initial rapid response to the economic downturn continues and that there are signs that the recovery will take longer than initially anticipated. In particular, the Dow Jones index rose by 1.62% while the S&P500 index grew by 1.15% and the Nasdaq index rose by 0.91%. Stoxx 600 - European benchmark index - fell by 2.17%.

Better than expected Chinese industrial production data helped the European stock markets to post some moderate gains on Friday along with a rather positive Thursday's close on Wall Street in New York. As China's Retail Sales on year-to-year basis showed 7.5% decline in April 2020 vs April 2019 after a similar 20.5% drop in February and 15.8% fall in March, the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics published its industrial production indicator, which increased 3.9% year-on-year, far beyond the average expert forecasts of only a 1.5% increase.
