22.10.2015 - The statement of Mario Draghi may increase the activity of traders

American stock indexes show a decline, despite the publication of strong corporate reports of Boeing, General Motors and Coca-cola. The growth of index is constrained by the fear of the Fed raising interest rates this year, which was negatively displayed on the stock of US companies. Today, the course of trading will be affected by the news on the number of initial unemployment claims in the US (12:30 GMT) and sales on the secondary real estate market (14:00 GMT). Our medium-term outlook remains positive and we expect continued growth in the near future.

European stocks showed a slight increase yesterday and today continue to consolidate near the previous close in anticipation of the press conference of the ECB President Mario Draghi during which he is likely to point to the future incentives to support inflation in the euro area. Positive for the UK market was the news of an unexpected rise in retail sales in the UK by 1.9% in September, which is significantly better than the forecasted growth of 0.3%. Also today, we should pay attention to the consumer confidence index in the euro area (14:00 GMT). Our medium-term outlook for European equities remains positive.

Markets in the Asia-Pacific region showed a decline today. Positive dynamics was demonstrated only by Shanghai index, which remains the most volatile in the region due to the instability in the expectations of investors, which is due to the slowdown in the Chinese economy. The pressure on Japanese stocks today had a stronger yen, which affects the demand for shares of exporters. Tomorrow the course of trading will be affected by the news on manufacturing PMI in Japan and the index of leading economic indicators in China. We continue to forecast growth on markets in the region in the medium term.
