The developments on the stock exchanges today were marked by great fluctuations. For days now, corporate figures, the number of infections, the Brexit negotiations and the discussion about another US economic stimulus plan have been a source of concern. Overall, expectations are quite high. Market participants react accordingly sensitively when disappointment emerges. By the end of trading, however, a large part of the daily losses had been made up again. The DAX® closed 0.16 percent lighter at 12,530 points and the EuroStoxx®50 0.3 percent down at 3,170 points. Nevertheless, the situation remains tense.
Yields continued to rise on the bond market. The yield on 10-year Bunds improved to -0.58 percent and the yield on comparable US bonds to 0.82 percent. The stronger US dollar put precious metals under some pressure today. The gold price fell below the mark of 1,900 US dollars and the silver price to 24.50 US dollars per troy ounce. The oil price has recovered somewhat from yesterday’s lows. The increased inventories could, however, slow down the upward trend somewhat. The price for a barrel of Brent Crude Oil remained in the range of 41.40 / 43.50 US dollars.
Company in focus
The share of Adidas was fueled by speculation about a sale of Reebok. Continental presented preliminary figures today. Accordingly, the automotive supplier drove deep into the red and tightened the austerity course. The share went into reverse today and sank to around EUR 100. Hugo Boss bottomed around EUR 22 and is now suggesting a recovery. The German Lufthansa fought back to the EUR 8 mark today. ProSiebenSat.1 sold the health subsidiary Windstar to the financial investor Oakley. Investors acknowledged this step with a price increase of 1.5 percent. Will the rebound come to EUR 12? Zalando received support from positive analyst comments today. Rational tested an important support level today at EUR 690. If it tips under, there is a risk of a major setback. At Varta the contract with CEO Herbert Schein was extended. Nevertheless, the paper collapsed sharply today.
From Europe report tomorrow among other things ABB, Ceconomy, Daimler and Renault Business figures for the past quarter. In the US stand among other things American Express and their business figures in focus.
