27.01.2016 - Markets are waiting for the Fed statement tonight

American stock indexes stabilized in anticipation of a number of important events including today's statement of the Fed on monetary policy (19:00 GMT) and the publication of the preliminary report on US GDP growth in the 4th quarter, on Friday. We do not expect changes in interest rates of the Federal Reserve and in the event of dovish rhetoric, the rise in the markets may continue. On the other hand, today is also necessary to pay attention to data on new home sales in the US (15:00 GMT). In the coming days will be increased volatility and we anticipate a decrease in the stock markets of the country in the coming months.

European stock indices show a decline amid falling oil prices and weak corporate reporting of a number of companies. Investors are waiting for the Fed's decision on interest rates, which will be published in the evening. Data on consumer confidence, which remained at 9.4 did not affect the course of trading. Strong influence on the mood of investors tomorrow will have preliminary data on GDP growth in the UK in Q4. We expect continued strong volatility in the near future and the growth of stock markets in the region in the medium term.

Major stock markets in the Asia-Pacific region rose today against the background correction after yesterday's decline. In addition, support for the market was a temporary recovery in oil prices. Positive expectations associated with increased stimulus measures in Japan after a meeting of the central bank, which will end on 29 January. This step will lead to the growth of the Japanese indexes. At the same time, the situation on the Chinese market is still unstable. We expect continued uncertainty in the market in the near future, but the more likely scenario is an upward correction after a significant fall.
