What’s Driving the German Dax?

Over the past week, inflation data and rate expectations have remained at the forefront of risk sentiment, adding pressure to stocks. With the Core inflation rate in the Euro area rising to a fresh record high of 5.6%, market participants shifted their focus to the ECB (European Central Bank) and the hawkish repricing of higher rates.

After commentary from ECB president Christine Lagarde confirmed that rates would only decrease once the inflation target of 2% is in sight, Dax prices fell slightly before rebounding off support at 15323.

As all sectors move into positive territory, the industrial sector has been leading gains, bolstered by higher demand for materials and the reopening of China’s economy.



While positive earnings from Convestro AG and expected job cuts from Zalando SE have assisted in driving recent price action, next week’s corporate earnings could provide an additional catalyst for the major European index.
