14.12.2015 - Uncertainty on the market adversely affects the indexes
US stock indexes showed strong decline on Friday in connection with the growth of uncertainty on the markets before Fed decision on interest rates, which are estimated to be raised. The Fed's decision will be published on December 16, after which will be a press conference of Janet Yellen during which investors will try to understand the future plans of the regulator with respect to the tightening of monetary policy. Tomorrow will be published important statistics on consumer price index in the United States, which strongly affect investors' expectations regarding the Fed steps in the next year. We remain medium-term positive outlook, but the decline may continue in the near future.
European stocks fell on the last day of the last week and now show a correction after the strong decline caused by fears of investors in anticipation of the Fed raising interest rates on Wednesday. This step will increase the value of money and would reduce the market position. Today in the UK was published data on house price index, which declined in December by 1.1%, compared with a decrease of 1.3% in November. Tomorrow, the trading will be influenced by the news on inflation in the country, and on Wednesday, the focus will be on a report on the labor market of the country. Industrial output in the euro area in October rose by 0.6%, which is two times better than forecast. We expect a strong movement on the market before the end of the week and maintain the medium-term positive outlook.
Major stock markets in the Asia-Pacific region today showed growth except for the Shanghai index. Japanese stocks reacted negatively to the strengthening of the yen and the fall of the index in the United States. Today was published data on the volume of industrial production in Japan in October, which rose by 1.4%, in line with expectations. At the same time, industrial production growth in China accelerated in November to 6.2% for the year to 5 6% in October. Retail sales in the country have accelerated the growth of 0.2% to 11.2%. Our medium-term outlook for the market in the region remains positive and we are waiting for the strong price movements in the near future.
