EU Market View

Asian equity markets traded cautiously after the mixed lead from Wall St where most indices stalled at record levels. European stock markets are seen opening lower Friday, ending a generally positive week on a cautious note amid concerns that growing Covid-19 cases will stunt economic growth.  European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde warned Thursday that ever-increasing Covid-19 numbers and restrictive measures, such as lockdowns, to curb the spread of the virus could challenge the region’s economic outlook.

Lagarde also indicated more clearly than ever that the ECB would not use the full amount of its chief bond buying program if it does not need to.  

In FX markets, USD remained subdued, EUR/USD held on to yesterday's gains and GBP/USD oscillated around 1.37. Looking ahead, highlights from macroeconomic calendar include UK and Canadian retail sales, EZ, UK, US flash PMIs, existing home sales.

EU Key Point

  • Chinese officials saying yuan is currently at a reasonable level.
  • HK press report parts of Kowloon to be locked down in the next 3 days.
