Today’s highlights: Global markets mostly lower
Wall Street ends lower: US markets were in the red for the second consecutive session yesterday, as the DJ30, SPX500 and NSDQ100 all closed lower. The recent declines are attributed to remarks made by Fed Chair Jerome Powell, who yesterday implied that a rate cut this year may not be as certain as previously believed.
Asian markets mostly lower: Following Wall Street’s lead, markets in the East were seen mostly lower this morning, as both the JPN225 and China50 indices were in the red at the time of writing. In contrast, the HKG50 eked out small gains.
Oil jumps nearly 2%: The black gold continued to climb this morning after showing gains yesterday. The recent uptick is attributed to ongoing tensions in the Middle East, coupled with a decrease in US oil stockpiles.
Volatility expected for USD: The monthly Core Durable Goods Orders report is due in the US at 12:30 GMT, potentially impacting the greenback.
Gold slips 1%: After Fed Chair Powell cooled the enthusiasm regarding a possible rate cut this year, gold prices experienced a price drop, as the safe haven asset declined 1%, falling below its recently-reached 6-year high.
Big pharma mega merger causes Allergan to soar: Pharmaceutical giant Allergan, known for manufacturing Botox, yesterday closed 25% higher following reports that it is to be acquired by AbbVie for $63 billion.
Altran Technologies jumps on acquisition deal: French IT consulting firm Altran Technologies closed more than 22% higher yesterday, after it was reported that rival company Capgemini will acquire it in a deal worth $4.1 billion.
Europe opens lower: The UK100 opened 20 points lower, the GER30 was down 39 points and the FRA40 opened 10 points lower.
