Weekly outlook: DAX is weak. Focus on leading indicators and key data for Q3!

Most of the stock markets gained somewhat in the past week. The gains in the leading equity barometers were between 0.7 and 4.1 percent. The markets came under pressure, especially in the second half of the week. Mixed economic figures, rising corona numbers and the first profit warnings sometimes caused uncertainty.

There are a number of important economic data on the calendar for the coming week. In addition, it is to be expected that some companies will publish key data for the past quarter in advance before the reporting season slowly gets going in the following week.

Investors went into risk-off mode at the end of the week. The yields thus fell into the area of ​​their weekly lows. The yield on 10-year Bunds closed at -0.544 percent and the yield on comparable US bonds at 0.66 percent. The uncertainty was also reflected in precious metals. Gold and silver were in demand on Friday and reached significant levels. Gold stabilized above 1,900 US dollars per troy ounce and silver rose to 24 US dollars per troy ounce. Meanwhile, oil is still under pressure. In addition to the weak demand caused by the corona, the ongoing discussions in the US Congress about another economic stimulus package put a strain on it. One barrel of Brent Crude Oil lost its price 3.8 percent to $ 39.4, testing an important support level.

Company in focus

The past week showed a mixed picture for the individual values. So benefited Infineon from a forecast increase from STMicroelectronics and improved by double digits. Bayer on the other hand, after a profit warning dived in double digits. Siemens Energy went public at the beginning of the week and fluctuated between EUR 20 and EUR 23.50 over the course of the week. The share of the parent company, Siemens, even marked a new annual high in the first half of the week. Car values ​​attracted entry after good sales figures from China. BMW and Daimler improved by over four percent compared to the previous week. In the second row, the shares of Fuchs Petrolub and Rational stood out. Fuchs Petrolub’s planned acquisition in Italy met with a positive response from investors.

The Association of German Machine and Plant Builders will publish figures on incoming orders next week. Of the Solactive German mechanical engineering index recently showed a good development. There will also be a high-level conference on hydrogen in Berlin. This means that titles from the Global Hydrogen Index come into focus next week.
