CAC40: recrosses 7300, ignores the tension of +WStreet rates
(CercleFinance.com) – The Paris stock market (+1.6% to 7,302) is barely catching its breath, while the rebound on Wall Street is a little withered (from +1% around 3:30/4 p.m. to +0, 6% on average at 5 p.m.).
The CAC erased from the start of the afternoon, and with disconcerting ease, the 1.8% lost on Friday and even climbed beyond that with +1.9% to 7,324… longs which continue to tighten (with an OAT at 3.05% against 3.01% on Friday).
The Euro-Stoxx50 shows the same river score (+1.7% to 4,250), Frankfurt takes +1.5%.
Friday’s decline was attributed to a US inflation figure that had upset the markets: today it’s up the same, but there is no ‘lucky’ figure to justify this rebound.
The rise had even peaked the day before the publication of a 4.5% drop in durable goods orders in the United States last month, after a 5.1% increase in December 2022 (revised from a Commerce Department’s initial estimate of 5.6% in December).
But beware: excluding transportation equipment (including aviation), where orders plunged 13.3% month-on-month, US durable goods orders rose just 0.7% in January.
On Friday, it was easy to argue: ‘Markets are adjusting to the risk of a stronger and longer tightening’ according to Jeanne Asseraf-Bitton, head of research and strategy at BFT IM.
