08.04.2015 - Minutes of meetings of the Fed may increase volatility

US stock indexes have not changed, despite the positive statistics on the increase in the number of vacancies in the United States to 5.13 million vs. 5.01 million. Investors believe that this fact points to the temporary nature of weak data on the US labor market, which was published last Friday. Today, it is worth paying attention to the publication of the previous Fed meeting minutes (18:00 GMT) and the President's speech the New York Fed, William Dudley (13:30 GMT). We maintain a positive medium-term outlook for the US market.

European stocks showed strong growth after a long weekend amid expectations of further support for the euro area economy via quantitative easing program. Against this background, and an inflow of investments from the Middle East and Asia in European assets. Support for the market was also the data on the growth of the producer price index of the Eurozone in February by 0.5%, which is 0.4% better than expected. Today, the course of trading will be affected by retail sales data in the euro area (09:00 GMT). Our medium-term outlook for the markets of the region remains positive and we see no reason to change the current trend.

Markets in the Asia-Pacific region showed strong growth on the background of improving investor sentiment around the world. The Japanese market has grown despite the strengthening of the yen amid expectations of the publication of positive reports of Japanese corporations that for the fiscal year show strong profit growth amid a weakening yen. In general, the dynamics of trading in the region continues to depend on measures to stimulate the economy of countries. The Bank of Japan today left the country's monetary policy settings unchanged, which should support a further increase in the indexes of the country. Our medium-term outlook remains negative.
