16.12.2015 - Statement by the Fed leads to a strong movement on the market
US stock indexes were corrected upwards after a strong fall last week on expectations of the Fed on monetary policy (19:00 GMT). Raising interest rates will show a negative on the stock markets due to the rise in the cost of money. Particular attention should also be paid to the plans for the Fed to tighten monetary policy further in the spring of 2016. We expect strong price movements and maintain the medium-term positive outlook.
Major European stock indexes are now showing growth on fixing of short positions before the Fed's decision on interest rates. Today was published data on unemployment in the UK, which has continued to decline and reached 5.2% in October against the forecast of 5.3%. The consumer price index in the euro area rose by 0.1% to 0.2% in November compared with the same period last year. This fact points to the effectiveness of the program of quantitative easing. We remain medium-term positive outlook and expect strong price fluctuations tomorrow.
Markets in the Asia-Pacific region rose strongly today after the European and American markets. Japan's manufacturing PMI was 52.5, compared to the previous value of 52.6, which supported the growth of the markets. In the coming days, the dynamics of trading on the markets of the region will depend on the Fed statement on future plans for US monetary policy and the dynamics of prices. Our medium-term outlook remains positive, despite a possible drop in the near future.
