Weekly outlook: Tech stocks support DAX. Gold and ECB in the spotlight!

In the past week, the stock markets were quite mixed and there was a lack of lasting impulses. So DAX® and S & P®500 were able to achieve a reasonable plus from a weekly perspective. The EuroStoxx®50 and Dow Jones®, on the other hand, came to a standstill and stock indices like the French CAC® 40 even recorded losses. There is likely to be some movement in the markets in the coming week. Numerous important economic data are on the calendar, the ECB interest rate meeting is coming and the first quarterly reports are published.

Yields on the bond market declined somewhat over the course of the week. The yield for 10-year Bunds fell to -0.47 percent (previous week: -0.43 percent). The yield on comparable US securities was 0.60 percent (previous week: 0.67 percent). Precious metals rose consistently in the past trading week. Gold prices set above $ 1,800 per troy ounce, the highest since autumn 2011. The oil market, however, remained calm. High inventories slowed the slight upward movement and the price of a barrel of Brent Crude stagnated in the $ 43 range.

Focus on companies

In the past week, technology titles were particularly in demand. So sit down Infineon and SAP with a clear gap to the DAX® top. SAP was mainly driven by good company data and Infineon by a good mood around the semiconductor sector and positive analyst comments. At Siemens there was some upswing after the AGM decision to split off the energy division. In the second row the shares fell from Commerzbank, Kion and Gerresheimer with above-average price gains. The back of the chairs on the executive floor at Commerzbank was well received by investors. Gerresheimer will publish quarterly figures next week. LPKF and HelloFresh were largely responsible for ensuring that the German rising index (will be put together again on Monday). However, gold and hydrogen, which can be found in the BANG index (contains four of the largest gold mining companies in the world) and the Global Hydrogen Index knocked down.

The reporting season starts next week. Traditionally, the US banks start like Citi, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley. It is very possible that other companies will also report key data on the past quarter. Also load Continental, Kion, König & Bauer, Nordex and Südzucker to the general meeting. The European automobile association ACEA reports figures on new car registrations in Europe. With that, the shares of the automakers move up BMW, Daimler, Renault and VW in focus.
