In the last week of January most important stock markets liked the green color. It seemed, that the global market sentiment improved and the bulls returned. Investors were focused on the Fed which did not change the interest rate. In addition, the FOMC’s commentary contained some concerns - the council was afraid of economic slowdown. Therefore, investors believed in a further dovish monetary policy. Moreover, Fed’s doubts were confirmed by the annualized GDP’s reading for the fourth quarter of 2015 – it rose by 0.7% y/y vs 0.8% expected. Furthermore, data on durable goods’ orders failed as well. Unlike them, the releases of the Conference Board index and the Chicago PMI index did not.

The second week of the new year was marked by high volatility in global financial markets. Initially, the stocks were dominated by bulls. Certainly, better than expected volumes of export and import in China improved the markets’ sentiments. However, the market tone changed on Wednesday. As a result, most important stock exchanges moved towards the south. It was caused by the release of Beige Book which contained the economic outlook for the US. The analysis showed that the recovery might be uncertain.
