Today’s Outlook:
US MARKETS: Analysts also argue that a soft landing has been reached, where the Fed managed to tame Inflation faster than the pace of economic slowdown. Geopolitical conflicts also continue to be closely monitored by market participants, who are anxiously watching the potential expansion of the Israel – Hamas war. In this regard, world crude oil prices fell 3%, with the Brent (London) benchmark oil price returning below the psychological level of USD90/barrel, as diplomatic efforts to end the Middle East conflict increased, which had initially pushed oil prices up 10% over the past 2 weeks. After US President Joe Biden visited Israel last week, the leaders of France and the Netherlands will visit the region in an effort to find the best solution. Inevitably, this sentiment made the Energy sector plunge with the largest percentage decline of the 11 sectors in the S&P500 index.

Germany follows with the GfK German Consumer Climate report for November as well as PMI data (Oct.).
