FTSE MIB | Italian Budget and Sovereign Ratings

Much like this week, market participants will be placing a keen eye on the latest developments surrounding the Italian budget. As it stands, the budget has been met with criticism from the EU who stated that the budget is in serious breach of EU rules, which in turn has set the EU and Italy on a collision course. Consequently, bond spreads between Italy and Germany are at the widest since the Eurozone debt crisis and thus weighing on Italian banks (index lowest since 2016), while sovereign rating agencies S&P (Oct 26th) and Moody’s who are due to announce their view on Italy may further exacerbate the widening spread if Italy’s sovereign debt is downgraded.

Nasdaq 100 | FAANG Stocks

The recent sell-off in equity markets had seen tech names and Nasdaq 100 come under heavy selling pressure amid growing concerns that the Federal Reserve could take interest rates into the restrictive zone (above neutral rates). Nonetheless, the Nasdaq 100 is showing signs of a slight recovery as US earnings provide support, most notably Netflix which saw a 10% surge after beating estimates. Focus will be on the next FAANG stock to report, Amazon, whereby a strong performance could help aid the recovery in tech names.
