Market Sentiment Hit by German Court Ruling | Webinar

Market Sentiment Hit by German Court Ruling | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,
What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence remains positive amid a growing belief that an easing of coronavirus lockdowns around the world will lead to improved economic activity.
  • However, a ruling by the German constitutional court that could curb the Bundesbank’s bond buying will likely limit the market’s enthusiasm for riskier assets.

Trader confidence hit by German court

Traders are broadly optimistic that an easing of coronavirus lockdowns around the world will lead to a rally in economic growth. However, that optimism is being tempered by news that the German constitutional court has ruled that the Bundesbank must stop buying government bonds under one of the European Central Bank’s stimulus scheme within three months unless the ECB can prove the purchases are needed.

That his hit the Euro in particular, although European stock markets have so far shrugged off the ruling.
