Weekly comment MM Prime TFI - March 27 2017
Despite the lack of strong bearish incentives, major global stock market indices liked the red color last week. During the last five days, the DJI went down by 1.5%, the S&P500 fell by 1.4% and the NASDAQ declined by 1.2%. In Europe, British FTSE250 decreased by 0.6%, German DAX deteriorated by 0.3% and French CAC40 shrank by 0.2%. Attention should be paid to the next pro – restrictive public appearances of the FOMC representatives, which in the eyes of investors were not hawkish enough. In addition, the initially postponed voting of the Congress on health reform was not completed – the proposed law was withdrawn due to the insufficient number of votes. This was quite bad news for the federal budget.
