Weekly comment MM Prime TFI - December 7, 2015
There were not many investors who complained about the lack of emotions in the first week of December. American and European financial markets were looking forward to the public appearances of Fed’s and ECB’s presidents. As a result, the beginning of the week was quite smooth. On Wednesday, the fed chairmen Janet Yellen, who was discussing the Beige Book, confirmed an increase of interest rates on December. In the wake of that, the US markets started to decline. To add insult to injury, Mario Draghi, the president of ECB, in line with the consensus cut the deposit rate and extended QE on Thursday.
